Counting. We count the Omer. We count to make a minyan. We count 613 mitzvot. The Jewish census goes back thousands of years. All that counting of people or mitzvot isn’t really about numbers. It’s about emphasizing that every person, every mitzvah, and every day is important. The sum total of those individuals and actions is what gives our community its strength. Everyone counts and every good deed – big or small – makes an impact, keeps Jewish community vibrant, and changes people’s lives. As part of Calgary’s Jewish community, please make yourself count by supporting Federation’s United Jewish Appeal campaign.
Everyone should benefit from our collective philanthropy.
Can we count on you?

Years of Generosity
For more than half a century, Calgary Jewish Federation’s annual United Jewish Appeal Campaign has, through our community's generosity, help create and strengthen Jewish Calgary’s core programs and services. Through the Program Allocations Committee (PAC) process, raised funds are allocated to programs and services provided by our local partner agencies, Federation-sponsored programs and projects in Israel and around the Jewish world.
