Community Update: UJA’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic


Our entire community, along with much of the world, has been impacted by the pandemic. Jewish day schools have cancelled in-person classes and shifted to online learning. Our JCCs have closed. Many synagogues have ended in-person services, particularly following the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health request that all places of worship do so immediately. Here at UJA, we have cancelled all events, our ShinShinim have returned to Israel, and our staff are working remotely.

While the way we work has changed, we continue to operate at full capacity to deliver the services our community needs. UJA’s extensive reach through our network of agencies, our ability to quickly mobilize in response to new challenges, and our large-scale capacity to address the comprehensive needs of our community uniquely position us to make an impact.






Help us help our most vulnerable 



In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to support our community's most at-risk members. The disenfranchised, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems may be unable to afford or access groceries and other basic supplies. With your help, we can do what our community does best: care for our most vulnerable.
