Help Our Jewish Family through New Ukraine Assistance Fund

Ukraine Assistance Fund has been launched by Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to address the needs of the Ukrainian Jewish community that become more acute each day.

Donate Now to the Ukraine Assistance Fund

The Ukrainian Jewish population of more than 200,000 is one of the largest in the world. The area is already home to some of the world’s poorest members of our Jewish family, and the currency devaluation and increasing economic uncertainty are affecting the entire community. Now, many are afraid to leave their homes, a synagogue has been firebombed and the situation continues to destabilize.

Since we’ve supported Jewish life and organizations in Ukraine for decades, Jewish Federations and our overseas partner agencies have been able to step in when the need for help intensifies. American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Jewish Agency for Israel, and World ORT, are there.

But more help is needed as the situation escalates. Your contribution to the Ukraine Assistance Fund will ensure that assistance is on the ground where and when it is needed for our Jewish family and institutions as the dire unrest continues.
