Thanks to YOU, our “70 Years of Heart Campaign” Was a Rousing Success!

Thanks to the indelible spirit of tzedakah that exists throughout New Mexico, our 5778 (2017/2018) annual campaign eclipsed the previous year’s total, marking consecutive years of campaign growth for the first time in a decade.

All of us at Federation and our beneficiary organizations thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Don't Miss Bob Baer Live in Santa Fe! Monday January 21 at 7:30pm VIP reception at 6pm

The Jewish Federation of New Mexico is pleased to present our signature program of 2019: an evening with Bob Baer. Baer is a world famous expert on Middle Eastern Affairs and host of the History Channel's "Hunting Hitler". A 21-Year CIA veteran, Bob Baer is one of America’s most elite intelligence case officers. Bob spent the majority of his career on the front edge of international espionage, counter-intelligence and information gathering. From decoding and intercepting illicit weapons trades between countries to tracking some of the most elusive and high profile terrorists, Bob has seen and done it all and is driven by the quest to know the truth regardless of the consequences. He has led international teams of intelligence officers, informants and officials across nations and through dangerous wartime situations, from the moment a message is intercepted through the process of bringing criminals to justice. Baer brings with him an extensive Rolodex of contacts, from forensics experts to the most coveted on the ground investigators. And you can see him LIVE at the James A. Little Theater!
