Crisis In Ukraine
In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas in conjunction with the Aaron Family JCC, the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, and Jewish Family Service of Dallas, have joined together in support of a community-wide effort to assist the people of Ukraine in this time of crisis.
The Jewish Federations of North America have launched a $20 million emergency campaign to provide humanitarian assistance to vulnerable Jewish populations living in Ukraine.
Funds will be allocated through Jewish Federations’ core partners, The Jewish Agency for Israel, The Joint Distribution Committee and World ORT, and others who are on the ground in Ukraine, and will provide critical welfare where it is needed most and support to protect and safeguard Ukraine’s Jewish community as well as Jews in neighboring countries.
Immediate and short-term needs already total $20 million and include:
- Helping people make Aliyah to Israel Securing the local community and its institutions
- Maintaining critical welfare services such as delivery of medicines and medical supplies for those in need
- Assisting internally displaced people in multiple locations
- Launching an emergency hotline Securing temporary housing for people in transit
- Purchasing satellite phones to maintain communications across the region
- Securing five Jewish schools and training staff to manage crisis needs
We extend our deepest gratitude for your generosity and compassion. Thank you for helping the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas be Here For You. Here For Good.
