Through the work of Direct Services, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis provides a variety of Jewish engagement, Jewish education and operational support services for individual and organizations in the St. Louis Jewish community. The mission of our work is to build and strengthen community by connecting people to information, resources, services and each other.
We do this through a variety of programs and services designed to support and engage adult learners, families with young children, schools and congregations, those traveling to Israel, developing community leaders and seniors aging in place.
