Jewish Faculty and Staff Association


  • Create a welcoming environment for new and prospective faculty/staff
  • Help strengthen the campus Jewish community
  • Provide a venue to discuss issues relevant to the community and its allies
  • Help connect new faculty/staff to resources in the Ames Jewish community
  • Organize social gatherings and cultural events several times a year


While focused on the interests and needs of those who identify as members or friends/family of the Jewish community, this FSA is open to all, and we will strive to reach out to a broad cross section of the Iowa State community.
