The Jewish Community Association of Austin (JCAA) supports an innovative community where Jewish living and learning can thrive. Located primarily on the 40-acre Dell Jewish Community Campus in Northwest Austin, the JCAA provides a vast array of services and programs, from enrichment opportunities for all ages to support services for families, from health- and wellness-oriented programming to global philanthropy.
An umbrella organization, the JCAA includes four main divisions: Jewish Federation of Greater Austin, Jewish Foundation of Austin and Central Texas, the Jewish Community Center, and Jewish Family Service. These branches work together to comprehensively address the needs of Austin's Jewish community in collaboration with area congregations, schools, and community organizations.
Everyday at the JCAA offers another opportunity to grow--as people, as families, as a community. We are a gathering place for our members, for the Austin Jewish community, and for the community as a whole. We are a center for Jewish living and learning. We are a shoulder to lean on for those in need.
The mission of the JCAA is to enhance the quality of Jewish life in the greater Austin area and around the world through philanthropy, education, social service, culture, spirituality and total wellness.
The goals and operatons of the JCAA are based upon and guided by the core Jewish values of:
1. Kehillah - community building
2. Limud -the centrality of learning and Jewish culture to Jewish life
3. Tikkun olam - the commitment to make the world a better place
4. Tzedakah - pursuing justice through acts of Jewish giving
5. K'lal Yisrael- the oneness and unity of the Jewish people worldwide
