We’re keeping our promise to never forget and never abandon.
Aging Holocaust survivors require more nuanced care. The terrible trials they suffered in their earlier years, like malnutrition, can intensify the typical challenges that come with advanced age. The loss of a spouse or longtime friend can trigger traumas experienced in the past.

That’s why our Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors helps fund individualized, home-based care in Israel and New York.

We’re helping survivors avoid institutionalization, which is especially traumatic, and improving their quality of life with social programs, meals, transportation, housing, and more. It is our sacred responsibility to care for Holocaust survivors so they can live with dignity, comfort, and independence.

Never Forget. Never Abandon.

Our Community Initiative for Holocaust (CIHS) is ensuring that survivors are living their remaining years with dignity.


Our Impact
