The Jewish Toronto idea is simple:

Our Jewish values in action. Every day. In every way.

UJA's priorities are clear:


We CARE for the vulnerable

Together UJA and our partner agencies serve over 25,000 Jews in need throughout the GTA, including those who are most vulnerable and most at risk, providing a safety net and a hand up, lifting many to self sufficiency.


We BUILD Jewish identity and education
Through UJA's Centre for Jewish Education, 70 day schools and supplementary schools educate 16,000 Jewish students in the GTA, from preschool through high school. Jewish identity and continuity are nurtured through Taglit-Birthright Israel, March of the Living, the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, our JCCs, camps and more.

We STAND with Israel and the Jewish world

Since the birth of Israel in 1948, Jewish Toronto has focused on Israel's most vulnerable. UJA, with the Jewish Agency for Israel, has ensured the integration of over 3 million Jews, including Ethiopian Israelis and Israelis from the FSU. UJA has helped transform the Eilat/Eilot region, Sderot and Bat Yam. UJA is also a global 911 for Jews in crisis around the world.

We LEAD Jewish and Israel advocacy

Advocacy is a watchword of Jewish Toronto. UJA Federation ensures we speak out on issues at the federal, provincial and local levels, whether it's anti-Semitism, delegitimization of Israel, human rights or any other issue. This is achieved through support for the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, support for students on university campuses and grassroots activism.

Through UJA, you help preserve & strengthen the quality of Jewish life here and around the world.
