Latin America and Caribbean

Programs that draw the generations together are a special feature of the multifunctional complex for the elderly that JDC helped the community establish in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Jewish communities in Latin America have weathered storms of political upheaval, social uncertainty, and economic collapse—always with JDC’s assistance and strategic support. From the diverse threads of Judaism throughout Argentina to the budding Jewish life being nurtured in Cuba, JDC has worked to foster stability, self-sufficiency, and reliable care for the needy in Jewish communities throughout the region.

Today, JDC’s work in Latin America is primarily focused on:

Latin America’s ever-changing political, social, and economic realities mean JDC’s leadership and technical support in its Jewish communities remain indispensible to ensuring the future of Jewish life in the region.

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.
