Thank You!   תודה רבה

To Leigh Deschamps and Leah Golberstein and the KITCH committee for the two wellness classes you led this pasr week. Thank you for sharing tips that will help us stay healthy!  We look forward to the next two sessions this coming week.

Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival – a virtual festival featuring 8 outstanding film events, including feature length & short films, post-film conversations and more – all from the comfort of your home.

How Will The Virtual Fest Work?

Simply register for an ALL FESTIVAL PASS and you can enjoy one or all films from October 15 through November 1. Plus, check out links to engaging post-film conversations with filmmakers and aficionados on the TCJFF website.


The 2020 Virtual Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival is FREE to the community, thanks to the generosity of the Mary and Julius Pertzik Jewish Cultural Arts Fund.

Kadima Initiative

Kadima launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that threatens our local Jewish organizations, the foundation of our community.

It's an emergency campaign with staying power. It's a campaign for and by the Minneapolis Jewish community—because the only way forward is together. 

When you donate to Kadima, your gift is helping 22 local Jewish organizations emerge from this pandemic even better than before.


Kadima has raised more than $7 million since launching in July. Our goal is to raise $39.5 million by next July. Can you help us get there?

Learn more by visiting or attending the next town hall on October 19.
