About Us


Our mission is to support and enrich the continuity of Jewish life and values in our community, in Israel, and worldwide.

The Tampa Jewish Community Centers and Federation (TJCCF) is the umbrella organization that operates both the JCC on the Cohn Campus and the Bryan Glazer Family JCC plus two preschools, Club J After School and Camp J in the summer and the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Village Assisted Living Residences.  Our Federation also supports the programs that drive arts, culture, and enrichment of the lives of the Jewish people in Tampa and everywhere else, including the Florida Israel Business Accelerator (FIBA) which connects high tech startups and companies here in Florida.
As you can see, we have a diverse group of operations that works together to provide support to the community and those who need help.  It is this mission that also fuels our annual campaign which sustains our network of programs, services, and facilities 365 days a year in Tampa, Israel and around the world.
There are many ways in which you can make a difference in our community.  Whether you’re interested in becoming a member at one of our JCCs, becoming a corporate sponsor to our events, making a tribute gift in remembrance or honor of someone special in your life or providing an endowment that that secures a legacy, the TJCCF offers you these options and many more.

Our Values and Guiding Principles

Tzedakah and caring for Jewish causes

Commitment to the survival of world Jewry.

Love for Jewish culture, traditions and learning.

Respect for others.

Communication that is truthful and open.

We work to strengthen family life, promote the health, education and welfare of our membership and our community, and to ensure for ourselves and future generations, Jewish continuity and identification with Jewish values, culture and heritage.

We work to enrich the quality of Jewish life in Tampa by bringing comfort and hope to the vulnerable and by investing in programs that build Jewish knowledge, identity and ensuring the next generation of Jews.

Our Annual Campaign raises millions of dollars each year to fund agencies locally — including Jewish day schools, synagogue religious schools and the Tampa Jewish Community Center, as well as numerous social-service programs to care for those in need in Tampa. One of the main goals of the Federation is to raise, collect and allocate funds from the community for the support of those services and to preserve a vibrant Jewish life in the United States, Israel and throughout the world. In Israel, Federation is affecting change and enhancing lives by helping to settle immigrants, assisting in times of crisis, and engaging in special partnerships with our sister city of Ashdod.
