Together, we as a community are saving lives, caring for the sick and those in need, performing acts of loving kindness, and providing safe avenues for connection and interaction. This is our mission, in good circumstances and in crises like this. Read our most recent community announcement.
The most powerful way you can help is through your gift to the JUF Annual Campaign, which fuels all of these critical services – and unites us in those common goals.
We have faced crises before, together, and we are facing this one with the same resilience, strength and unity. Together for Good. DONATE NOW
Rise – a joint project of JFNA and JPRO Network – offers three areas of response and support to Jewish community professionals who have been furloughed or laid off due to COVID 19:
AJC’s Advocacy Anywhere portal is the gateway to virtual conversations, programs, resources and expertise – ranging from personal protective equipment to Jewish life in Europe to Jewish-Muslim relations on campus to culinary diplomacy.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, JUF is accelerating human service delivery throughout our community, swiftly meeting emergency needs wherever help is necessary.
To pinpoint those areas where increased emergency resources would have the greatest impact, JUF surveyed hundreds of service providers, and a committee of volunteers who lead the community’s main planning and allocation efforts has already made several rounds of emergency grants.
The committee will continue to meet regularly to identify emerging needs, and to provide funding to address them, in the following areas:
Separately, we also have advanced some $4 million to help with cash flow for JUF affiliate agencies.
Beyond dollars, JUF is providing technical assistance and expertise in employment law, human resources, benefit administration, fundraising, financial planning, communications, facilities, security, advocacy to elected officials and guidance in applying for new government programs.
As the needs continue to grow in the weeks and months to come, so will JUF’s response.
Together, we will ensure that thousands more are fed, thousands more are provided emergency cash for rent, utilities, medications and other necessities, and thousands more are receiving medical care.
We are—truly—together for good.
