Congregation Beth Jacob and many of our members belong to the Jewish Federation of Southern Illinois, Southeast Missouri, and Western Kentucky. Our Federation is a very important partner in providing services to our community. It runs Camp Ben Frankel for our youth at SIU Touch of Nature, brings us speakers and programs,  conducts the annual campaign, organizes holiday celebrations, finds officiants for life cycle events, gives out current information on Israel, and provides other support for Jewish life in Southern Illinois. The Federation’s activities help bring together small-town Jewish populations over a very large geographic region.  For more information on the Federation, contact:
