Seniors

Whether it’s sharing your time or talents, socializing with your peers, or accessing support when you need it, the Federation is here for you whether you're on the go or taking it slow.

Holocaust Awareness  

 

Holocaust commemoration and education is paramount to ensuring that the tragedy of the Holocaust is never forgotten and its lessons are passed to the next generation.

 

 

Endowments

 

Leave More Than Memories is a perpetual annual campaign endowment fund held at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba and created for the sole purpose of enabling donors to continue supporting the annual community campaign – the Combined Jewish Appeal – forever.

Combined Jewish Appeal

 

No other gift has the power to impact more Jewish lives than a gift to the Combined Jewish Appeal. Your gift ensures that our community agencies, organizations and institutions are strong and impactful.
