As the coronavirus crisis has unfolded, UJA and our network of nonprofits have been responding to drastically mounting and evolving needs. We’ve allocated more than $46 million to date to meet needs across the New York region and Israel. Our initial focus was on making sure the most vulnerable got the indispensable support they desperately need. We're also helping sustain the human service agencies and Jewish institutions that are the heart and soul of our community.

Our impact includes:

This may be a challenge unlike any we’ve faced before, but UJA was built for this moment. We’re working around the clock with our diverse and interconnected network to help all those counting on us.

We also know that this is a crisis that has hit painfully close to home for so many of us. For anyone who is coping with illness or loss, our hearts go out to you.
