The Jewish Agency for Israel

Established in 1929 nearly two decades before Israel's statehood, The Jewish Agency was instrumental in founding and building the State of Israel. Since that time, they helped hundeds of Jews in peril around the world to immigrate to our spiritual homeland, and has provided a wide range of services to help these newcomers settle and acclimate.

Today, in addition to its signaure aliyah work, The Jewish Agency offers assistance to Israeli victims of terror and others in need of aid. It also works to connect Israel, Israelis and the Jewish people worldwide through Jewish renewal programs and shaliach (emissary) efforts.

American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

Founded in 1914 on behalf of North America’s Jewish communities, JDC is a non-political humanitarian aid organization that gives global expression to the principle that all Jews are responsible for one another. Working today in more than 70 countries, JDC rescues Jews in danger, provides relief to those in distress, supports the renewal of self-sustaining Jewish community life, and helps Israel's most vulnerable overcome social challenges.
