Around the world, JFCC helps the needy and nurtures Jewish life
We will support and strengthen Jewish life wherever Jews live around the world.
At Federation, our global reach is unparalleled. We’ve built and sustained programs in more than 70 countries, ensuring that Jewish communities everywhere are vibrant and resilient.
HOW WE HELP
We deliver critical aid to vulnerable populations—the elderly, the disabled, at-risk children, impoverished families—during times of peace and times of conflict.
Where Jewish expression has been suppressed, we are rebuilding community infrastructure. Helping Jews reconnect with their heritage. And empowering the next generation of promising young Jewish leaders.
With our help, more than 160,000 seniors and thousands of at-risk families in the former Soviet Union—among the poorest Jews in the world—have enough food for dinner and heat during brutal winters. In South America, where the ongoing economic crisis has hit the Jewish community hard, we make sure thousands of struggling parents have baby formula and diapers for their infants, and help buying groceries.
Today, the food, medicine and shelter we provide mean the difference between life and death for more than 42,000 Ukrainian Jews caught in the crosshairs of the current conflict. And amid rising anti-Semitism, Jews in Europe and around the world know they can rely on our unwavering support and security expertise.
And where Jewish life is experiencing a renaissance, we’re there to nurture it. In Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Caribbean, we’re helping dozens of burgeoning synagogues and groundbreaking community centers. At workshops, retreats, and summer and winter camps, we’re supporting thousands of young Jews as they forge new paths for their communities.
Because no matter where we live, we are all part of one global Jewish family.
