Now Boarding Flight JDC

Baruchim Habayim! Bienvenida! Wilkomem! Swaagatam! Добро пожаловать!—welcome to JDC’s blog!

Whether you’re a long time supporter or have only recently heard of us, here is what you need to know about JDC: in more than 70 countries, in countless languages, JDC feeds the poor, aids the sick, rescues and supports those in crisis, and rekindles Jewish life around the globe. And we have been in this business for 95 years.

So what exactly does that mean to you? First, this means that sometime, somewhere, someone you know—or are related to—was helped by JDC.

Secondly, by connecting with JDC through this blog you can learn firsthand about JDC projects, upcoming events, and special reports from JDC staff members in the field.

In the former Soviet Union, in Israel, in parts of Africa and Asia, in Central and Eastern Europe, and in remote regions around the world, Jews and non-Jews in need, suffering poverty, disease, isolation, as well as natural and man-made disaster, rely on JDC as their only support.

So join us as we help them, find out more about what we do, and check back often to see that, even today, we are transforming words of action into deeds that save lives.

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.
