Because of you.
For over a century, Federation CJA has played a central role in supporting Jews worldwide through an unparalleled network of national and international partners. We are uniquely able to amplify our impact worldwide including mobilizing resources in Israel and any corner of the Jewish world and planning for the future with advanced research tools and innovations.
In 2018-19, Federation CJA allocated $3.8 million to Israel in our direct investments and through our national and international partnerships with the Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Hayesod and the American Jewish Joint Di stribution Committee.
Investment in Israel
Federation CJA’s relationship with Israel reflects the deeply held commitment of our community to Israel and its people; we stand in solidarity with Israel during times of peace and times of conflict.
While we continue to support Jews in need in Israel, our relationship has also evolved over time, moving beyond that of donor-recipient to one of mutual growth and strengthening of Jewish identity.
Supporting Our Partnership Region
We are proud of the strong partnership we have with our sister region of Beer Sheva and Bnei Shimon. Since 1988, we have worked collaboratively and strategically with our local, national and international partners and we have played a key role in changing the very landscape of the Negev, ensuring Jewish vibrancy and a strong future in Israel, and strengthening our own Jewish identity here at home.
Rescue and Crisis & Global Jewish Responsibility
Reflecting our Jewish value of tikun olam, when crisis strikes across the street or across the globe, Federation CJA, through our local, national and international partners, mobilizes quickly and effectively. This is the power of the collective gift and the strength of our network: Our impact around the world is greater because we don’t act alone.
In 2017, when floods devastated communities right here in Quebec, Federation CJA raised close to $45,000 to support the victims. Similarly, the Hurricane Harvey Relief appeal raised close to $48,500 for those affected in Houston. 100% of these funds were directly used to provide critical assistance on the ground.
