JDC Ambassadors expedition to Turkey and Kazakhstan

Join us for the forthcoming JDC Ambassadors expedition to Turkey and Kazakhstan
February 7-14th.

Istanbul, Almaty and Astana contain some of the most exciting and unique Jewish communities in the world. Come with us as we spend several memorable days seeing the sights of modern and ancient Istanbul. We'll tour the Blue Mosque, the Ayasofya, shop in the Grand Bazaar ... and much more. We'll be hosted by the Jewish community and celebrate a beautiful Shabbat evening with their leadership. And we'll have time to see some of the incredible work of JDC and the Jewish community in reaching out to their neighbors.

In Almaty, we'll see the life-changing programs of JDC in the Hesed (welfare center) and JCC, visit the homes of community members, and enjoy high-level briefings on Central Asia and its Jewish challenges. We'll spend a day in the new capital city, Astana, with its incredible architecture and striking buildings. And we'll see the cultural highlights and tourist sites of a rapidly changing and renewing former-Communist country.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see two warm Jewish communities - we hope you join us! For more information please contact Dov Ben-Shimon, JDC's Executive Director for Strategic Partnerships, at dov@jdcny.org.

Logging In With One of Your Social Web Site Logins

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.

To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.

Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.

In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.

You can break the connection between your accounts at any time.
