Support the most vulnerable now.

Tonight, JDC for Tsuzamen: Singing Together with the Jews of Ukraine. Hosted by renowned broadcast journalist Budd Mishkin, this virtual concert event will benefit our humanitarian aid to Jews remaining in Ukraine and the thousands of refugees who have fled to neighboring countries.

“Tsuzamen” — “together” in Yiddish — captures the heart of this event, which will spotlight voices from Ukraine and across the former Soviet Union, as well as American Jewish singer-songwriters. Through the universal language of music that spans locations and genres, this unifying experience will center on a powerful message delivered in one voice: Ukraine’s Jews are not alone.
