Spread the Word

So many people don't know there are Jews around the world living in dire conditions, facing unimaginable poverty and forced to choose between feeding their family and buying critical medicines.

That's why we're turning to you. Share their stories and show the world why the work we do together matters.

Donate to Change Lives

Our work depends on your support. When you donate, you give so much more than money. You provide food, medicine, homecare, winter relief, opportunities for Jewish connection, and more. And when you travel with JDC, you see your impact firsthand and discover what it means to be a global Jewish citizen.

Fundraise for JDC

Special events are a special day to make a transformative impact on Jewish communities around the world. In lieu of gifts, pledge your wedding day, birthday, or other milestone occasion to help those in need.
