Each year our community's support of more than 20 essential local agencies and programs, as well as humanitarian programs in Israel and 70 other countries around the world, is made possible by the generous donations individuals and families make to the Jewish Federation of Madison's Annual Tzedakah Campaign.
Join us to kick off the 2019 Tzedakah Campaign, a community-wide event tradition marking the beginning of our annual campaign efforts. Learn more about critical local and overseas needs, enjoy a delicious kosher meal, and celebrate our community's commitment to nurturing Jewish life at every age and stage now and for the future.

Wendy is the immediate past chair of National Women’s Philanthropy (NWP) of The Jewish Federations of North America and the current chair of the Community Outreach and Engagement Committee.
