For Immediate Release

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, is collecting funds to aid victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan. JDC has previously provided relief to the Pakistani people in the wake of the disastrous 2005 and 2008 earthquakes.

“By harnessing our vast experience in international disaster relief and tapping our network of partners on the ground to assess the most pressing needs, JDC will quickly respond to those affected by the floods in Pakistan,” said JDC CEO Steven Schwager.“ Guided by the principle of tikkun olam (repairing the world), we’ll help ensure that the most vulnerable are reached.”

JDC, which provides life-saving food, clothing, medicine, and other necessities in more than 70 countries around the globe, has implemented similar relief efforts in places like Haiti, countries in South Asia in the wake of Indian Ocean Tsunami, and in Myanmar after Cyclone Nargis. One hundred percent of funds collected will be directed to relief efforts.

JDC is closely coordinating with the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and Interaction in Washington D.C.

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.
