Jewish Federations still need your help to raise $20 million for Ukrainian Jews


Jordan Palmer, Chief Digital Content Officer

The work of The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) continues as they seek their goal of raising $20 million to secure the Jewish community of Ukraine. The first $8 million is now allocated to The Jewish Agency for Israel, The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, World ORT, United Hatzalah, and Hillel International.

The funds will go to sustain displaced Jews who are not in camps or shelters with basic needs such as food, medicine, appliances, and clothing, as well as increasing cash assistance to elderly and vulnerable families.

“Jewish Federations are working in lockstep with our partner organizations to ensure that critical aid gets through to Ukraine’s Jewish community,” JFNA President and CEO Eric Fingerhut said. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response from every corner of our system to step up, pitch in, and lead in the efforts to provide immediate relief and services to this community under siege.”

Locally, the Federation of St. Louis is supporting the work of its global partners on the ground in Ukraine, Russia, and Poland to address immediate needs. Every dollar raised will go to these organizations.

“This work is urgent; we know as a people that whenever and wherever one Jew is threatened, we are all threatened. Thank you for your compassion and generosity,” writes JFed.
