As the world changes, so too must our response
to the profound commandment of charity.”

(“Tzedakah in a Global Community,” Jeffrey D. Sachs)

Spokane’s annual Jewish film festival enhances the cultural life of both the local Jewish community and the Inland Northwest as a whole. However, it’s more than just a cultural event: Festival proceeds directly support the human services work of Spokane Area Jewish Family Services. Through client consultation and advocacy, our food bank, and our rent and utility assistance program, SAJFS has continued to support families and individuals as they face the new and daunting challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.




Thanks to our generous community, Spokane Jewish Cultural Film Festival 2021 was a hit! Please check back on this page in the fall of 2021 for information about how to support next year’s festival!
