There are over 100,000 Jews living in desperate conditions in countries like Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus. These are some of the poorest Jews in the world, struggling to survive on pensions as little as $2 a day. Often, they must make the grim choice between heat, food or medicine.
UJA Federation of Greater Toronto supports the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the world's leading Jewish humanitarian aid group. This Chanukah season, we are working to make a difference and improve the lives of vulnerable Jews, not only in Toronto but around the world. Thank you to our generous donors for enabling us to continue supporting JDC's lifesaving work.
