What We Do


The Charleston Jewish Federation serves to unite the community, so that our Jewish leaders and institutions have the opportunity to imagine and create a Jewish Charleston that not only rivals the most vibrant Jewish communities around the world, but inspires others to follow our lead.


We offer a place for people from across our community to become involved and make a difference in a more hands-on way; through innovative programming, opportunities to travel around the world, leadership training, and other groups and possibilities to connect to themselves, to other Jews, and to being Jewish.
