Transforming Jewish Life in Hamilton


The Hamilton Jewish Federation has been central to Jewish life in Hamilton for more than 80 years. We are the organizational hub of the Jewish community, representing the full spectrum of Jewish life. We are a catalyst for new projects and initiatives that meet and address the community's current and future needs.


The Hamilton Jewish Federation provides a helping hand during difficult times. Through our beneficiary agencies, we feed the hungry, comfort the sick, care for the elderly, educate our youth, fight against anti-Semitism, and advocate for Israel.
