Responding to Global Crises and Building Resilience

We're committed to ensuring safe, thriving Jewish communities around the world — in crisis and every day.

Natural disasters, terror, violence, and hatred shatter millions of lives each year. Since 2007, UJA has invested more than $81 million to bring urgent relief to those on the ground and aid long term recovery. Our essential relationships with hundreds of nonprofits worldwide make us agile and ready to mobilize at a moment’s notice.
