Signature Events:

While we plan multiple events per year like happy hours, panel discussions, and other legendary gatherings, there are a few signature events that you should keep in mind:

  • Bagel Bash

    A homecoming for many, a reunion of friends, and a celebration in its own right. Bagel Bash is an annual celebration for young Jews in Kansas City. Held on Dec. 24 each year, Bagel Bash is one of Federation's most attended and energized events for adults in their 20's, 30's, and 40's. Click here to see photos from our last Bagel Bash.
  • BK Give

    BK Give is a giving circle where women of all ages meet, connect, and get inspired to help others—all just for a $36 commitment. In three sessions you will learn about various programs and services and decide which program(s) will receive funding—you make your mark. It’s a fun, direct way to make a difference. For more information, contact Laurie Goldstein, 913.327.8104.
  • FED

    FED event has been designed to engage the next generation of Jewish leaders, intertwining food, community, and philanthropy. The event, held annually in the Fall, helps raise funds toward the Jewish Federation’s community campaign, for which we raised over $5 million last year. The funds raised during the campaign are then allocated to programs serving people in need in the Jewish community here in Kansas City and around the world." FED is now being modeled nationwide.
