What We Do

Share by

We often speak about what we do in big numbers. The 4.5 million people a year touched by our work. The nearly 100 beneficiary agencies in our unparalleled network. The more than 70 other countries around the globe our support reaches. But to truly understand what we do, you must understand how the services we make possible can change individual lives.

  • A Holocaust survivor in Kiev who receives a warm bowl of soup at a local community center.
  • A father, an Ethiopian Jew, learning new job skills to better support his family.
  • A teen embarking on travel to Israel and connecting to Jews from around the world.
  • A child with autism who, for the first time, feels welcome and included in her synagogue community.

These are just a few examples of how we help those in need, strengthen our global community, and inspire Jewish life. Together, we’re building a community where no one is left out.

Ultimately, what we do is about the difference you can make in the lives of countless individuals. And by joining us in this meaningful endeavor, the life you most change may be your own.

Meet Bernie, Yifat, and Laurie, whose lives have been transformed because of what we make possible.
