Providing for the well-being of those in need is a key tenet of Jewish heritage and one of the fundamental aspects of Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit’s mission. Whether in Detroit, Israel, or anywhere around the world, Federation is committed to taking care of the Jewish people. 

One of the international partner agencies Federation support is the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).  

As the leading global Jewish humanitarian organization, JDC rescues Jews in danger, provides aid to vulnerable Jews, develops innovative solutions to Israel’s most complex social challenges, cultivates a Jewish future, and leads the Jewish community’s response to global crises like natural disasters, public health emergencies, and more. For over 100 years, their work has put the Jewish value of mutual responsibility into action, making JDC essential to the survival of millions of people and the advancement of Jewish life across the globe. 

See for yourself. Take a look at part of their response to the current crisis in Ukraine.
