Federation Committees


People from a broad spectrum of our Jewish community participate in a variety of Jewish Federation committees that address issues that affect all of us. Each committee is staffed by a Federation professional who brings knowledge and expertise to the table to help implement the members’ proposals and ideas.

  • Annual Campaign Cabinet

    The Cabinet, is made up of over 100 volunteer individuals who serve as ambassadors throughout the Jewish community to educate community members about the Federation’s purpose as community builder and chief funder. They work together to solicit support for the annual campaign, raise over $2.3 million to serve Jewish needs here in Nashville, in Israel and overseas.

    The Investment Committee guides the investments of the Jewish Federation of Nashville as well as The Jewish Foundation. It sets the guidelines and goals for financial management and each year determines the asset strategy for producing growth and stability for the funds.

  • Grants Committee

    The Grants Committee involves a cross section of community members to determine how dollars raised from both the Annual Campaign and income from the Unrestricted Fund of the Jewish Foundation can best be distributed to carry out the goals of the community.

  • The Observer Editorial Board

    This Board helps the Observer, the Jewish Federation’s community newspaper, better serve our needs. They guide the editor and advertising manager in publishing news that has an impact on each of us in Nashville.
