Saving Jewish lives and building Jewish life are not short-term projects.

You Have the Power to Change the World
We bring food, medicine, warmth, and other supplies critical to survival to tens of thousands of the world’s poorest Jews in the former Soviet Union, Eastern and Central Europe, and around the world.
Jewish Life & Leadership
Through Jewish Community Centers, summer camps, family retreats, young leadership training and more, we’re investing in young leaders committed to shaping their communities’ futures.
We develop innovative solutions to social challenges on a national scale, tapping into Israel's entrepreneurial spirit to give all Israelis the chance to succeed.
When disaster strikes, JDC mobilizes, leveraging a century of expertise to provide immediate relief and work with communities to sustainably rebuild and recover.
Who is Helped?
Tens of thousands of elderly Jews and Jewish families live in unthinkable poverty. We bring life-saving relief to them in places where nearly no other social services exist.
In countries all across the globe, Jewish communities which had once been suppressed are reconnecting to their unique heritage. Through cultural celebrations, leadership training programs, and opportunities to network, we are strengthening Jewish leaders young and old so their communities can be more resilient against the challenges of tomorrow.
Israelis on the margins seek the chance to participate fully in the nation they love. We make it possible by increasing independence, opportunities, and support for the most vulnerable people. Our investment in Israel’s human capital uniquely strengthens its future.
From Haiti to Nepal and from Ecuador to the Philippines, we're on the ground when disaster strikes, working with communities to not just rebuild but truly recover — crafting innovative, sustainable solutions to help ensure that the towns and cities hit hardest bounce back stronger than ever before.
