Travel With JDC

Romania and Bulgaria

Bucharest, Romania


JDC Ambassadors

More information: Avital Muth, Ambassadors Missions, at ambassadors@jdcny.org

Meet Jews who are reclaiming and strengthening their Jewish identity and traditions while overcoming economic hardship.

Hear from a new generation of Jewish community leaders about the struggles and innovations in Southeastern Europe today. Explore the changing scene in Bucharest and Sofia and engage in Jewish activities with local community members. 

Romania, once home to thriving Jewish life, saw mass murders during the Holocaust and emigration to Israel following.  Bulgaria’s Jewish community was largely spared during World War II.  Both communities, though small, are proud of their heritage, and eager to rebuild life today.  Economic pressures in the region are intense, and JDC is offering life saving support.

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.
