Twenty percent of Jews in Montreal currently live below the poverty line, including over 3,650 Jewish children under the age of 15. And need and complexity are growing. Our priority is vulnerable families, individuals and seniors. We provide access to emergency and crisis services, and financial support and assistance to a growing number of marginalized seniors, many of whom are Holocaust survivors. For youth, our focus is on mitigating the effects of poverty by offering support in the form of employment and training opportunities, accessible Jewish education, and capacity-building programs.

Almost 70,000 meals were provided last year through programs including food banks and food delivery, like our “Lunch for a Bunch” school program.
