The mission of the Jewish Federation of Tulsa is to preserve and enhance Jewish life and well-being in Eastern Oklahoma, Israel, and the entire world.
This mission is being addressed by pursuing charitable, humanitarian, cultural, educational, health, and social service needs of the Jewish community as well as engaging in community relations and outreach and providing a variety of services to the broader Tulsa community.
The success of the Jewish Federation derives from an engaged Board of Directors, dedicated staff, generous donors, and an abundance of committed volunteers.
Fostering a connected and collaborative Jewish community, characterized by respect, empathy, and understanding.
Continuously improving the quality of life of all Tulsans, as well as our partners in Israel and abroad, through philanthropic giving of our resources and time.
Sustaining the culture, traditions, and collective memory of the Jewish people, through innovative intergenerational programming that is meaningful, educational, and fun.
The Jewish Federation of Tulsa (JFT) is committed to being a transparent, adaptive, inclusive, and collaborative space. JFT strives to create a caring, and united community rooted in Jewish values and traditions. We embrace and value differences, such as ethnicity and national origin, religious denomination and spiritual practice, race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic levels, and mental and physical ability.
Deepening our understanding of who we are begins with listening to the distinct voices that make up our Tulsa community. JFT is committed to advancing and fostering inclusion and encouraging everyone to participate and understand Jewish life.
