Generations Capital Campaign | Shalom Austin


Capital Campaign

A New Day for the J is Today

Generations is the first capital campaign since the Dell Jewish Community Campus opened in January 2000. After raising $25 million, we will create a new home for the community by expanding and renovating the Dell Jewish Community Campus.

Help us build the future of the Austin Jewish community.
