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. Your support ensures that New Mexico’s nearly 25,000 Jewish residents have access to Jewish engagement from birth to end-of-life, and at every stage in between, from generation to generation. All of us at Federation and our beneficiary organizations thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Stay tuned for information on our 5779 (2018/2019) “Heart of Jewish New Mexico Campaign” and the many exciting initiatives of the Jewish Federation of New Mexico.


Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer Visits New Mexico!

This past week the Jewish community of New Mexico was honored with a visit by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency, Ron Dermer. Ambassador Dermer spoke to our community in the most passionate and intelligent terms about modern day Israel. Everyone in attendance was truly awed by his cogent and heartfelt talk in which he shared much more than a canned speech. He spoke from the heart and shared in a very candid manner, the tachlis, the essence, right now, regarding Israel.
