We’re excited to share that JDC got a shout out in the media for reaching Jews living in some of the furthest corners of the globe.

Voices of America spotlighted JDC’s work assisting the elderly in Belarus, where only a handful of Jews remain in shtetls scattered across the country—less than 1% of the population that prospered there prior to World War II.

And the Washington Post published a Letter to the Editor responding to the “waning days” of Jewish gauchos in Argentina, who still remain very much alive for JDC. Like the rest of the Jewish community in that country reeling from the devastation caused by the economic crisis in 2001, JDC continues to support Argentina’s Jewish gauchos through these trying times.

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.
