Global Jewish Responsibility

All over the world, JDC is saving Jewish lives, building Jewish life, and living Jewish values. Click here to learn more about how you can make a difference in the global Jewish community and beyond.

Giving the Magic of Jewish Summer Camp

Summer camp can be an unforgettable Jewish experience, but for the kids who attend Szarvas, it’s even more — an opportunity to connect with their Jewish heritage in a way they can’t at home.

Building a Better Life for Israelis with Disabilities

Nearly 800,000 Israelis live with a disability. Friends for Healthy Living brings people together for inclusive workshops, sports, and friendship, giving Israelis with disabilities the community, confidence, and skills to thrive.

Saving Elderly Jewish Lives in the Former Soviet Union

In countries like Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus, nearly 100,000 elderly Jews are all alone, struggling to survive on as little as $2/day. They are the poorest Jews in the world and they need our help.

The Revival of Jewish Life in Cuba

Today, Cuba’s Jews are committed to their Judaism and their community, dedicating themselves to building Jewish life even under the most difficult circumstances. Against the odds, the Jewish community is reawakening, and its members are hungry for Jewish knowledge and connection.

Eradicating Diseases in Ethiopia

Throughout Ethiopia, JDC’s WASH program transforms villages by giving them the education, tools, and clean water to protect themselves from disease and parasites.

Sharing Jewish Culture with the Next Generation

JDC’s PJ Library program lets Jewish children in Russia grow up with Jewish culture by giving families Jewish-themed books.
