American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee


For Jews and other people in poverty, crisis, and peril, there has been an enduring address for relief and rescue for more than 100 years: the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the world’s largest Jewish humanitarian assistance organisation.

JDC works today in more than 70 countries to feed, clothe, and offer shelter and medical support to the needy; aid Jews in danger; build Jewish life in places where it was once almost extinguished; empower Israel’s most vulnerable through innovative social service programs; and provide emergency aid and rebuilding efforts in response to disasters like Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, the global plight of refugees, and the earthquake in Nepal.

In 2017, you can do your part to help the world’s neediest. Please contact or 001 212 885 0838. Please visit
