American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

JDC is the leading global Jewish humanitarian organization.

What started with a cablegram in 1914 requesting the American Jewish community’s support in aiding starving Jews in Ottoman-era Palestine continues to serve as a beacon of hope for Jews and others in 70 countries today.

Rebuilding a shattered Europe after the Holocaust. Helping the fledgling State of Israel thrive. Assisting Soviet Jewry. Strengthening Jewish communities from Casablanca to Mumbai and beyond. Responding to natural disasters. We act whenever and wherever we are needed, propelled by our Jewish values and our commitment to mutual responsibility.
