As the world is focused on the plight of those being evacuated from the besieged city of Aleppo, the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR), chaired by JDC, has swiftly moved to meet the needs of these beleaguered civilians.

Facing overwhelming hardship, the evacuees are in desperate need of food, medicine, clean water, and shelter. JCDR is working with a vetted and longtime JDC partner on the ground, the International Blue Crescent, to ensure food for the growing evacuee population.

This is latest chapter in JCDR’s response to the largest refugee crisis since World War Two. The 20-member JCDR Coalition for Syrian Refugees, and JDC, have provided humanitarian relief to tens of thousands refugees and displaced persons in the last three years in Jordan, Turkey, and across Europe.

As Chanukah approaches, and we celebrate the miracle of light banishing darkness and hope in the face of great odds, we urge you to visit the JCDR website and help ensure relief for those in their greatest hour of need.

JCDR’s decades-long efforts providing life-saving aid and critical support, on behalf of the Jewish people, has impacted countless numbers of people facing disaster and crisis in numerous countries, including Rwanda, Haiti, Nepal, and across South Asia.

Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugee members include:

American Jewish Committee
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee
Anti-Defamation League
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society
Jewish Federations of North America
Jewish Foundation for the Righteous
Jewish Labor Committee
JUF/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago
Jewish Women International
Jewish World Watch
Rabbinic Assembly
The Jewish Council for Public Affairs
United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism
World Jewish Congress

JCDR’s work with refugees has also led to the founding of the MultiFaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees, an interfaith movement dedicated to spreading awareness and advocating for the needs of Syrian refugee populations.
