80 Years of Community Involvement: Over the last 80 years, the Jewish Federation has supported and engaged members of the Jewish community and connected the Jewish Community with many Central Oklahoma nonprofits. We are proud partners of Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Alliance Oklahoma, Regional Food Bank, and many other important organizations serving our neighbors.

Yad B'Yad, Hand in Hand Award: The Jewish Federation will be honoring Michael Baron, Producing Artistic Director of the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, with our Yad B'Yad award. This award is bestowed to someone who has demonstrated extraordinary community service and leadership in the general community and a commitment toward building bridges between community organizations.
