About the Federation

The Mission of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is to mobilize human and financial resources to care for those in need, strengthen Jewish life and advance the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people in Miami, in Israel and around the world. The Greater Miami Jewish Federation was founded in 1938 in response to Kristallnacht (considered by many to be the harbinger of the Holocaust). Since then, Miami has grown from just a resort destination into a unique, culturally diverse community. As the Jewish population has grown, Federation has evolved right along with it. We’ve helped plan schools, Jewish community, agencies and synagogues. We’ve welcomed Jews from Cuba, Latin America, France, the former Soviet Union and other places. We’ve stood alongside Israel in ordinary and extraordinary times. And we’ve raised our voices on behalf of the voiceless – from refusenik Jews to frail aging Holocaust survivors right here at home.

About the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach

The Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach is a well-known, cherished South Florida landmark, the premier Holocaust Museum in Miami-Dade County and a leader in Holocaust education throughout the state. We serve a broad constituency locally, nationally and internationally, offering a robust schedule of virtual and on-site lectures, films and dialogue. Our curricula are featured prominently in Miami-Dade-area public and private schools, and the resources we offer teachers provide important guidance not only in teaching about the Holocaust, but also in incorporating lessons from the Holocaust into greater understanding in the classroom about hate, racism and antisemitism. We are currently building a new 7,000 square foot Education Center and look forward to expanding all of our initiatives with this exciting future.
