Jewish Federation of Houston

Enriching Jewish Life Here, and Everywhere

The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston operates as one of 146 independent Federations and a network of 300 communities across North America. The Federation works to ensure Jewish continuity and provides for Jews in need in Houston and around the world. Its programs educate and connect the Houston community to both Judaism and Israel while celebrating the rich heritage and values of the Jewish people.

The Ask

The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston came to us with one goal; to create a modern website that allowed community members and partner organizations alike, to find exactly what they are looking for quickly and easily. As an organization that serves a wide-ranging audience, both domestically and abroad, there was a need for a web solution that would allow all users to feel comfortable and confident when visiting the site.

The Solution

We interviewed members of the organization and members of the community to understand their pain points as well as their wishes for the future of the federation. Using WordPress as our foundation CMS, we created multiple custom post types and unique, templated pages with a library of custom component modules that allow content managers make easy site updates, add new sections, and even create unique landing pages.

We developed a highly optimized user experience and calendar module with multiple integrations and a litany of options to view, sort, register, or submit events. A modern, accessible design style speaks to the communities in which the federation operates, while also embracing Jewish heritage both in the U.S. and throughout the world.
