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 nonprofits in our unparalleled network; the more than 70 other countries around the globe our support reaches. But to truly understand what we do, you have to first understand how we’re changing individual lives, like:

  • A Holocaust survivor in Kiev who receives a bowl of soup at a local community center.
  • A father, an Ethiopian Jew, learning new job skills.
  • A teen embarking on travel to Israel and connecting to Jews from around the world.
  • A student in Paris getting the skills to stand up to anti-Semitism.
  • A child with autism who, for the first time, feels welcome and included.

These are just a few examples of how we help those in need, strengthen our global community, and respond to crises. That’s how we’re building a community where no one is left out.

We hope you’ll join us. Because the life you change most may be your own.

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