Every one of us Together
Building Jewish communities TOGETHER in Canada, Israel and around the world
The United Jewish Appeal of Canada (UJA) campaign is your opportunity to join a vital global network nurturing Jewish communities around the world. Your gift enacts the Jewish values of compassion, generosity, and responsibility. It makes the world a better place.
With your donation, you contribute to the national Jewish community conversation, where many voices – from small communities to large – are heard and where common ground is found to protect and preserve our identity and safety in Canada, in Israel, and worldwide.
The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA)
Your gift fights antisemitism.
Antisemitism is neither distant nor relegated to the past. It is here. It is now. By supporting CIJA, the advocacy agent of Jewish Federations across Canada, you fight antisemitism. Visit Fightit.ca to learn about the dangers of antisemitism and online hate.
In August, after it emerged that Canadian Heritage had allocated funds to a documented antisemite, CIJA expressed the community’s outrage to Minister Hussen, whose response included not only a pledge to meet all CIJA’s demands to improve vetting policies across government agencies but also an apology for the hurt caused and a commitment to ensure such misappropriations would not recur.
And after Leader Jagmeet Singh outlined the NDP’s demands regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which he blamed Israel entirely and urged Canada to reverse our relationship with Israel, CIJA generated thousands of community responses urging the NDP to work toward peace and rescind this divisive policy.
Jewish Agency For Israel (JAFI)
Your gift provides care and support for children and families who have been forcibly displaced because of the war in Ukraine.
In Ukraine, where JAFI has worked for decades, they are needed now more than ever.
Almost six million refugees have fled Ukraine. Israel has responded by flying more than 10,000 Ukrainian Jews to Israel to rebuild their lives there.
At Ukraine's borders, JAFI assisted Ukrainian Jewish refugees with healthcare, shelter, and critical supplies.
JAFI also provided transportation to evacuate citizens under fire and helped expedite Israeli immigration and absorption processes for refugees in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Moldova, and Ukraine itself.
Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)
Your gift provides critical care and supplies to the world's most vulnerable Jews.
The JDC has been the leading global Jewish humanitarian organization for over a century.
Elder care is a cornerstone of their work. The JDC ensures that thousands of impoverished and elderly Jews around the world never need to choose between food and medicine and that they know they are a cherished part of our community.
In the former Soviet Union, JDC provides life-saving aid to 80,000 vulnerable and elderly Jews, many of them Holocaust Survivors without family or government support who struggle to survive on pensions as low as $2 per day. JDC provides the priceless hallmarks of community life — traditions and companionship — that allow them to live with dignity, joy, and hope.
In the wake of COVID-19, JDC also worked with Jewish communities from Latin America to North Africa to support thousands of new Jewish poor harmed by the pandemic.
Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA (JFC-UIA)
Your gift strengthens Canada’s connection to Israel.
Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA (JFC-UIA) has served Canada’s Jewish community, strengthening its connection to Israel, for 53 years. A Canadian charity providing financial oversight, controls, and assurance that CRA policies are followed, JFC-UIA guides your Canadian donation to social service programs in Israel and worldwide.
When you support United Jewish Appeal of Canada, you help Jews in need here at home, in Israel, and around the world. Together we will make a difference.
Please give today — your generosity means everything to those who need it most.
