More than 150 Jewish professionals from across the former Soviet Union recently participated in JDC's sixth annual Jewish Educators' Conference, held at the Hesed Eliyahu social welfare center in Tbilisi, Georgia.
This summer, a JDC Ambassadors trip set off to build bridges of a most personal kind with Jews in Hungary and the former Yugoslavia – Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia – and to better understand how they live.
Today's visit to a very tight-knit community that lost a daughter was heart-wrenching. We brought our condolences,
visited with each family to understand how they are surviving, and delivered critically needed aid.
JDC helped facilitate the delivery of two critically needed neonatal incubators, and is concurrently working with the Afya Foundation to pack and ship humanitarian and medical supplies to a Kathmandu hospital.
How does one answer those questions that children ask when their worlds turn inside out? How, as a parent, do we answer honestly, responsibly -- trying all at once to calm our children, protect them from pain, refresh their sense of personal security, and educate them as committed, responsible Jewish and Zionist citizens of Israel?
