About Jewish Federation of Winnipeg:

Jewish Federation of Winnipeg (JFW) is a public foundation created to operate as the representative body of the Winnipeg Jewish Community. JFW acts on behalf of the Jewish community and supports the State of Israel and “Klal Yisrael”. It works according to Jewish values, to maintain a strong and united Jewish community in order to provide culture, religious practice, survival and welfare of Jewish life.

JFW works through five different departments: Combined Jewish Appeal to raise funds, Community Engagement, Community Planning to plan the strategy, Community Relations to liaise with the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) in Winnipeg, and Immigration through which it runs its GrowWinnipeg program. JFW works in partnership with 18 different agencies. It has established an endowment fund known as the Leave More Than Memories Endowment Fund which is administered by the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba. GrowWinnipeg is an initiative that provides eligible applicants with a letter of support, enabling them to apply for immigration under the Strategic Recruitment Initiatives.
