Thanks to tremendous financial, media, hospitality, outreach and in-kind support – SJFF, now in its 23rd year and is recognized as one of the leading Jewish festivals in Seattle, the US and internationally. SJFF is also a respected cultural contributor and arts festival in the Pacific Northwest region. Donations are tax-deductible.
