In Moldova, Federation is connecting lonely and isolated seniors with their loved ones online. Through our partner, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), 67-year-old Daniel Greenberg (left) has learned how to video-chat with family and friends thousands of miles away. Young volunteers at JDC’s Hesed social welfare center are working with Daniel and other elderly Moldovans to help them increase their access to technology – and improve their quality of life.

Did you know Miami has a partnership city in Israel? Since 2007, Miami’s Jewish community has maintained a close relationship with the people of Yerucham, a city in Israel’s Negev desert region. Residents share resources and engage in educational, social, spiritual and cultural initiatives that enhance lives, develop leaders and build stronger connections to Israel and the Jewish people. Stanley Weinstein chairs the initiative, which is part of Federation’s Israel and Overseas Department. Read more.

Miami’s Jewish community is here to help 24 hours a day.
