Our Door is Open to Your Family

Your family has a place in our community and at our Federation! Meet other families and get access to free Jewish books through our PJ Library program. Jump into raising a Jewish family as a non-Jewish parent with the Mother's Circle. Send your child to camp on a Federation scholarship.

 

We seek to welcome, reach, and serve everyone interested in finding Jewish meaning and community, including interfaith couples, the unaffiliated, LGBTQ individuals, our immigrant communities, and other underserved populations.

 

We celebrate the diversity of today’s Jewish individuals and households and leave behind assumptions about what Jews look like or how families are configured.

  • PJ Library

    The PJ Library program supports families in their Jewish journey by sending Jewish-content books and music on a monthly basis to children from age 6 months to 8 years. It distributes free age-appropriate Jewish children’s books and CDs to families in partnership with the Alan and Linda Cohen Family and the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis.

  • Mother's Circle

    The Mothers Circle provides free education and support for women of other faith traditions who are raising Jewish children in the context of an interfaith marriage or committed relationship with a Jewish partner. Mothers in all family constellations are welcome and participants do not have to be affiliated with a Jewish institution or have any prior knowledge.

  • Camp Scholarships

    Let the Jewish Federation help your child spend the summer at Jewish overnight camp. We provide scholarships through One Happy Camper and through our own Joe and Sylvia Rothbard Family Jewish Summer Camp Program.
