Twin Cities Maimonides Society

As Jewish health care providers, we care deeply about the well-being of Jews in our community and Jews around the globe.

The Twin Cities Maimonides Society is the place to connect with Jewish healthcare professionals. Through your gift to the Minneapolis Jewish Federation Community Campaign, the St. Paul Federation Community Campaign, and public service opportunities for tikkun olam, you’ll change lives in our community and in Jewish communities around the world.

Our programs vary from glimpses inside the future of healthcare in Minnesota, to intimate conversations with Israeli medical professionals providing humanitarian aid to bordering nations, to a community-wide conference helping families prevent and manage obesity.
