Global Affiliations

As a member of the Jewish Federations of Canada – UIA, Federation CJA contributes both through Keren Hayesod to the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), as well as to the Joint Distribution Committee. It is also a member organization of The Jewish Federations of North America.

Through participation in JAFI’s Partnership 2000 program Federation CJA is twinned with the city of BeerSheva, capital of the Negev region in Israel and with Bnei Shimon, the rural area surrounding BeerSheva.

As per the recommendation of Canadian health experts, Federation CJA is advocating and practicing social distancing. Emerging research shows people can be contagious without showing symptoms, making it difficult to know who is spreading the disease. In order to \"flatten the curve\" on the pandemic and keep our community safe, we are postponing or cancelling all upcoming events until further notice. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
