The Knoxville Jewish Alliance (KJA)

is a single organization that runs both our local Arnstein Jewish Community Center and our local Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) affiliate.  In a very creative move several years ago, as one of the smallest organized Jewish communities in the USA, we merged our community's non-religious organizations for efficiency and improved communication. We share funds, office staff, boards of directors, committee leaders and lots of other resources and as a result more effectively serve the needs of our active, committed Jewish community in a coordinated manner.

About Us

We may be small, but we are a dynamic, warm and welcoming community with services, organizations and activities to meet your needs!


- to serve the Jewish people locally, in Israel, and throughout the world.
