JFCC helped to build Israel. Today we help keep it strong.
For more than six decades, we’ve helped strengthen the State of the Israel. And our commitment continues. Unwavering.
Federation is dedicated to ensuring that all of Israel’s citizens have equal access to educational and economic opportunity. And we work tirelessly to deepen connections between the Jewish State and the global Jewish community.
HOW WE HELP
Despite Israel’s economic success, one in five Israeli families lives in poverty. We provide a safety net for most vulnerable, and we advocate for those in distress.
When Israel is threatened, we mobilize our networks at home and overseas to come immediately to her aid.
That global connection is fostered by immersive experiences for young Jews and programming that brings Israel to life in communities throughout North America.
Federation has helped millions of immigrants move to Israel and start new lives—26,000 in the past year alone.
Thousands of elderly benefit from innovative services they receive right in their homes. Job training programs tackle high unemployment among the one million Israelis with disabilities. And struggling families know their children will have a brighter future thanks to our Federation-supported partners and programs — like the Ethiopian National Project, which helps thousands of Ethiopian-Israeli students achieve the Israeli dream.
The money we raise during times of crisis—like the $55 million we allocated during and in the aftermath of the conflict in Israel in July 2014—helps keeps Israelis safe during conflicts and funds post-trauma counseling for tens of thousands living on the front lines.
And we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of young Jews forge a personal connection to Israel through programs like Taglit-Birthright Israel, and built strong relationships between 500 communities in Israel and North America through Partnership2Gether.
We stand by Israel’s side. Always.
