Jewish Federation of San Antonio

Jewish Federation of San Antonio

The Jewish Federation of San Antonio is the coordinating and convening body dedicated to building Jewish community, to nurturing the quality of Jewish life, and to securing a favorable Jewish future in San Antonio, Israel and worldwide. Inspired by Jewish religious teachings, Federation embodies a primary commitment to klal yisrael (the responsibility of each Jew for another), to tzedakah (justice, charity, and righteousness), to tikkun olam (the process of repairing the world), and to the centrality of Israel to the Jewish people. In partnership with other Jewish institutions, the Federation promotes the advancement of Jewish learning and culture and seeks to perpetuate the values, practices and religious traditions that enrich Jewish life.

Our Maimonides Society hosted a program with Masad Barhoum, M.D., the first Israeli Arab to become the director general of a government hospital in Israel. Dr. Barhoum's topic was "From Nahariya to San Antonio: Building a Partnership, Growing a Hospital in Israel. Dr. Barhoum returned to San Antonio last year for more visits with the medical community and the evangelical Christian community.
