As the war escalates in Ukraine, we have taken measurable steps - along with our partner agencies - to provide relief aid on the ground and to those fleeing the country.

  1. Our Ukraine Emergency Fund has grown to $800,000, joining other Jewish Federations across the country in $24.5M in Ukrainian relief efforts. The funds are providing essential humanitarian aid on the ground and helping individuals and families escape to safety. 
  2. We continue to reach our local Ukrainian community by providing critical support to our ongoing partnerships with agencies, like KleinLife, RSJ Moishe House and the Mitzvah Food Program, who provide for thousands of Ukrainian immigrants living in the Greater Philadelphia area. 
  3. President and CEO Michael Balaban and Co-Chair of the Board, Gail Norry, will travel to the Poland/Ukraine border on Sunday, as part of JFNA’s delegation. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for live updates. 
  4. To find out more about how the Jewish Federations are working both near and far, watch this video. In it, you can find Danielle Weiss, our JCRC Chair, and Lauren Danneman, new JFNA Cabinet Chair and member of the Women’s Philanthropy Executive Board.
