Money raised from UJA's Global Seder to fight hunger and ensure that Jews living in Toronto, Israel, Cuba and the Former Soviet Union (FSU) can celebrate Passover in dignity with a Seder table filled with food.
In Toronto, UJA allocates over $60,000 annually to help the poorest of the poor purchase food for Passover.
There is no kosher food in Cuba so UJA allocates $50,000 to send kosher for Passover food to Cuba's Jewish community of 1,500 ensuring fulfillment of Passover traditions.
In the Israeli city of Bat Yam, UJA provides $75,000 for Ethiopian Israelis, including school lunches for 500 hungry children.
UJA allocates $350,000 for life saving food and medical relief supplies to 160,000 desperately poor seniors, most of whom are Holocaust survivors.
