Community-driven support for JUF’s Annual Campaign enables us to be one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the country. JUF believes in the extraordinary power of our resilient community to unite, empower, help and heal.
Rooted in the belief in collective action and collective responsibility, JUF provides life-saving services and life-enriching experiences where they are needed most. We take great pride in this, and in our unique ability to help people—to provide essential health and human services and vital points of community and connection.
For more than 120 years, JUF has served people of all faiths in Chicago, Israel and across the globe. We are a welcoming and inclusive community, inspired by Jewish values, committed to eradicating hunger, isolation and inequities, and uplifting all people to find health, harmony, unity, prosperity and peace.
