We fight poverty and care for our most vulnerable
We fight poverty and care for our most vulnerable

As a community, we have a responsibility to help those in greatest need. For thousands of years, the concept of charity and tzedakah has sustained, enhanced and strengthened Jewish life. UJA Federation, with the help of the community, embraces Torontonians in need at every age and life stage. Together with our network of partner agencies, we work to improve the lives of our community’s most vulnerable. We help those who live in poverty, people with mental and physical illnesses, individuals with disabilities, new immigrants, seniors, Holocaust survivors and others who might need a hand up.

      • Programs and Services for Seniors

        Over 30,000 Jewish seniors live in the Greater Toronto Area and approximately 5,000 of them live in poverty. Almost 10,000 are Holocaust survivors. Together as a community, we care for our elderly and ensure they live their lives with dignity, through the following services and programs.

        Healthy at Home

        Healthy at Home focuses on creating supportive environments, building social networks and connectivity for low-income, isolated seniors in our community. The program seeks to enrich these seniors’ lives by providing recreation, socialization, cultural enrichment, health promotion, kosher meals and connections to other programs, serving them where they live.

      • Facilitating Transportation

        Circle of Care provides more than 120,000 rides to nearly 4,000 frail seniors living on their own, transporting them to doctors’ appointments and recreational activities.

      • Kosher Meals & Socialization

        The Bernard Betel Centre provides more than 4,950 seniors and survivors with social, recreational and education programs, as well as kosher meals. This included more than 2,300 Russian-speaking members.

      • DoortoDoor

        DoortoDoor is a collaborative initiative launched in 2018 designed to specifically address poverty among survivors and Jewish seniors. DoortoDoor brings together a coalition of social service agencies, along with other partners, to help seniors and survivors access help for a wide variety of needs, including housing, food, clothing, health services, transportation, safety and personal care. Support is also provided to ensure social inclusion to help lessen the devastating effects of social isolation. In its initial three-month pilot phase, DoortoDoor has provided services to more than 120 seniors. Our goal is to provide much needed services to 300 seniors annually.

      • Newcomer Integration

        UJA Federation provides funding to Jewish Immigrant Aid Services - an organization committed to helping new immigrants with resettlement and integration into Canadian and Jewish community life. Last year, JIAS Toronto helped over 2,500 new immigrants settle in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and gain access to financial relief, language instruction, synagogue participation, Jewish summer camp, Jewish holiday and life cycle events, community centre memberships and Jewish education.

      • Assistance with Employment

        Jewish Vocational Services offers job placement assistance and career counselling to Jewish job seekers through EMET employment. In 2017, close to 1,000 individuals improved their employability and financial self-sufficiency.

      • Interest-Free Loans

        Jewish Free Loan Toronto offers interest-free loans to financially-challenged individuals in the Jewish community to meet educational and personal needs and to create business opportunities. This past year, 234 personal, education and business loans valued at more than $1.25 million were provided to members of the community.

      • Passover Assistance

        UJA Federation ensures that the most disadvantaged members of our community can celebrate Passover through gifts of food and financial support. This past year, nearly 1,100 clients of Jewish Family & Child received Passover boxes and an additional 730 clients received financial assistance at Passover to ensure they could celebrate the holiday with dignity.

      • Rent Supplement Program

        The Kehilla Residential Programme administers a rent supplement program that allows those living below the poverty line to have affordable apartments along the Bathurst Street corridor. This past year, almost 800 clients were provided rent supplements.

      • Support Program

        Administered by Jewish Family & Child, this program provides counselling, crisis intervention, development of a safety plan, advocacy and practical assistance to victims of domestic violence. Over 500 women and children are served annually.

The Talmans' Story

Mr. & Mrs. Talman* are Russian-speaking Holocaust survivors who had successful careers in Ukraine but emigrated to escape antisemitism. Now 77-years-old and without a pension, Mrs. Talman suffers from severe depression, anxiety and a host of physical ailments. Early childhood trauma from the Holocaust, including evacuations, losing her parents and physical abuse, coupled with the difficulties of adjusting to life in a new country as a senior, have severely impacted both her physical and mental health. In the past two years she has been hospitalized three times. The strain of caring for his wife was difficult and detrimental to Mr. Talman’s health, and he came down with pneumonia.

Fortunately, DoortoDoor has provided multiple solutions to address their complex problems. The Bernard Betel Centre is now managing the Talmans’ case and coordinating services for them, including:

  • Application for Germany’s Claims Conference Holocaust Fund.
  • Provision of home care from Circle of Care.
  • Delivery of kosher meals through the Bernard Betel Centre’s Meals on Wheels program.
  • Financial help to purchase a much-needed walker for Mrs. Talman.
  • Regular visits for Mrs. Talman from a psycho-geriatric nurse from Baycrest.
  • Connecting them to a Healthy at Home social program, which should reduce their isolation and provide social connections to their peers in the Jewish community.

*Their names have been changed to protect their identities.

      • Supplementary Financial Assistance Program (SFAP)

        The Supplementary Financial Assistance Program, administered by Jewish Family & Child, provides financial assistance to the Jewish poor in the GTA. The program has three components: supplementary financial assistance, counselling and rehabilitation. Last year, 945 individuals were helped by SFAP.

      • Chaplaincy

        The Chaplaincy program provides spiritual and religious care to Jewish patients/residents of 133 hospitals, long-term care facilities and correctional institutions. In the last year, they had 8,300 contacts with clients, family members and staff, a 30 percent increase compared to last year.

      • Hospice

        The Jewish Hospice Program, coordinated by Jewish Family & Child with Baycrest, Circle of Care and Mount Sinai Hospital, offers compassionate, home-centered programs to those with life threatening and/or terminal illness. Last year, 117 families were served.

      • Domestic Violence Support Program

        Administered by Jewish Family & Child, this program provides counselling, crisis intervention, development of a safety plan, advocacy and practical assistance to victims of domestic violence. Over 500 women and children are served annually.

Eleni's Story

Eleni G.* is a Russian immigrant with two young children who suffered through an abusive marriage for 12 years before turning to UJA-funded Jewish Family & Child (JF&CS) for help.

With financial support from the Supplementary Financial Assistance Program (SFAP), JF&CS helped Eleni escape domestic abuse and receive assistance to begin a new life. She received counseling, help with a subsidized housing application and funding to help pay first and last month’s rent. She was also given a great deal of emotional support and encouraged to take a course as a Personal Support Worker.

Social work visits, furniture for her apartment and assistance with applying and paying for summer camp for her children were provided.

The impact on the lives of Eleni and her children, and others living under similar conditions, cannot be overstated. Today, because of your financial support, Eleni is employed, and she and her children are safe and connected to the wider Jewish community.

“I am so thankful to JF&CS for helping me and supporting me every step of the way,” Eleni explains. “I feel like JF&CS is my family and whenever I have a problem, I always have an open door.”

*Her name has been changed to protect her identity.

We strengthen Jewish identity and education
We strengthen Jewish identity and education

The future of the Jewish community depends on providing our youth with strong connections to our roots and our heritage. That is why UJA Federation places a strong emphasis on investing in Jewish education and a vast array of identity programs.

      • Julia and Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education

        The Julia and Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education is UJA Federation’s education pillar, serving 14 day schools and more than 30 after school educational programs in Toronto, including 1,500 educators and 16,000 students.

        Tuition Assistance

        This past year, tuition subsidies to attend Jewish day schools and other educational programs were granted to approximately 2,300 students, for a total of more than $12 million for families with financial needs.

      • The TanenbaumChat Affordability Initiative

        Prior to the start of the 2017/18 academic year, UJA Federation worked diligently and strategically to secure two extraordinarily generous donations, totaling $14 million over five years, to launch the TanenbaumCHAT Affordability Initiative. A previous study confirmed cost was the major deterrent for parents wanting to provide a Jewish education for their children. This initiative is already having a profound impact:

        • Tuition lowered from $28,000 to $18,500
        • Grade 9 enrollment had been projected at 175 students. Today, momentum is building and approximately 300 students are enrolled in grade 9 for September 2018
        • More than 150 new students, who otherwise would not have attended Jewish day school, have enrolled in TanenbaumCHAT
        • A larger student body means increased opportunities for new electives, sports and extra-curricular activities

        The increase in enrollment is a powerful indicator of the desire for Jewish education in the GTA. UJA Federation will continue to lead the effort to ensure a vibrant Jewish learning experience remains accessible and affordable for all children in our community.

      • Silber Family Centre for Jewish Camping

        Research shows that summers at Jewish camp transform Jewish youth into spirited and engaged Jewish adults, laying the groundwork for strong Jewish communities. UJA Federation’s incentive program, One Happy Camper, provides a one-time incentive grant of up to $1,000 to first-time overnight campers. This past year, 415 kids received grants, bringing the total number of recipients to more than 3,000 since the program’s inception in 2008.

      • Summer Camp Scholarships

        Through JF&CS and JIAS Toronto, UJA Federation provides financial assistance that enables more than 350 children of low-income families to attend Jewish day and overnight summer camp.

      • PJ Library

        Every month, over 6,500 Jewish families—13,000 Jewish children—in the GTA eagerly await delivery of the mail in anticipation of receiving a very special blue and white envelope addressed to them. When it arrives, they joyfully rip it open to retrieve the treasure inside: their very own Jewish-themed PJ Library book to read with their families and keep forever.

        PJ Library has proven to be such a popular and powerful initiative that, with your support, several complementary PJ programs have been launched in recent years to help young Jewish families discover and celebrate our rich heritage and develop connections to the wider Jewish community.

        • PJ Partner Programs – 120 Jewish-themed family programs ran throughout the community with 30 partner organizations, including synagogues, supplementary schools, camps and the JCCs.
        • PJ Plus - This partner program with the JCCs is a weekly parent or grandparent and tot class which uses PJ Library books as a springboard to experiential, interactive and hands-on Jewish learning activities.
        • PJ Day School Partnership – This program provides a grant opportunity for Jewish Day Schools to create programming for PJ Library families to boost interest and enrollment in Jewish day schools. A total of 48 families attended a PJ Day School event and later enrolled their children at the day school.
      • UJA on University Campuses

        UJA Federation invests in Hillel Ontario, as well as Jewish student life on university campuses across Ontario. Hillel strives to inspire every Jewish student in Ontario to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel. Through promoting Jewish identity, cultivating student leadership and embracing religious and political diversity in an inclusive environment, Hillel Ontario enriches the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel Ontario is now the largest regional Hillel system worldwide, with more than 3,000 students attending a Hillel event this past year.

      • Kochavim

Partnering with teens from Eilat/Eilot, the Fellowship prides itself on producing strong lifelong Jewish teen leaders around the world, including 20 teens per year from Toronto.

      • Birthright Israel

        Since its inception, Birthright Israel has sent almost 20,000 Torontonians to Israel, including 1,100 this past year. This free ten-day trip to Israel for Jewish young adults (ages 18–32) introduces them to key landmarks of historical, national, archeological and natural significance that have shaped, and continue to shape Jewish life. Most participants say that the trip was a life-changing experience that made them feel closer to Israel and their Jewish heritage.

      • March of the Living

        The March of the Living is a two-week intensive educational experience that takes students in Grade 11 and 12 to Nazi concentration camps in Poland and then on to Israel. UJA Federation subsidizes the participation of students who cannot afford to pay the trip’s full fee.

We empower Israel and global Jewish communities
We empower Israel and global Jewish communities

Over the past 70 years, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto has worked with its strategic partners, including the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), to improve the lives of Jews in Israel and around the world. This includes supplying basic needs for the elderly and young families, social interventions to help youth with disabilities, providing assistance to Jews in areas of socio-geographic and geopolitical crises, and helping to bolster Jewish community resilience and the ability to respond to emergencies.

UJA Federation has also helped rescue and facilitate Aliyah to Israel for thousands of Jews from trouble spots around the world, including Ethiopia, Ukraine, Iran, Tunisia and France.

      • Programs funded through the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI)
        Masa Israel Journey

      • Partnership with the American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

        JDC provides humanitarian assistance to the world’s most impoverished Jews, helping provide life-saving food, medicine, employment services, education and elderly care.

        JDC partners with local organizations and leaders to enhance partner capacity, and to mobilize and empower communities while integrating global, Israeli and local expertise. When disaster strikes in a country where there is a local Jewish community, JDC activates its network and partners within that community. This past year, JDC served more than 110,000 Jews worldwide.

      • Partnership with Communities in Israel

        UJA’s work with our strategic partner cities of Bat Yam, Eilat/Eilot and Sderot features a wide range of health, education and employment initiatives. UJA funding for science labs, scholarships and support for cutting edge curriculum and education programs help equip the next generation of Israeli leadership with the skills, tools and knowledge they need to succeed in a competitive global marketplace.

We promote advocacy to fight antisemitism, build support for Israel and advance social justice
We promote advocacy to fight antisemitism, build support for Israel and advance social justice

As the advocacy agent of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), works to improve the quality of Jewish life in the GTA and across Canada by advancing the public policy interests of our community.

      • The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA)

        CIJA builds relationships with leaders in government, media, academia, civil society and other faith and ethnic communities to ensure greater understanding of the issues that impact the Jewish community. CIJA combats antisemitism and hate in all its forms, and advocates for fundamental rights and freedoms, social justice, and support for the people of Israel.

        CIJA makes a particularly strong impact by mobilizing thousands of community members to join together and make their voice heard on the issues that matter.

        Last year, CIJA launched grassroots mobilization campaigns that empowered nearly 110,000 community members to unite in sending messages to Canada’s elected officials and other decision-makers. These campaigns included:

        • 7,000 actions advancing Holocaust education, restitution and remembrance
        • More than 35,000 actions supporting Israel and fighting the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement
        • Supporting advocacy programming and distributing pro-Israel products at campuses nationwide through our campus partners at Hillel
        • Increasing government funding for community security
        • Resettling African asylum seekers in Israel to Canada
        • Advocating for more affordable housing, especially for people with disabilities
        • Banning genetic discrimination

        These campaigns are invaluable in demonstrating to Canada’s leaders that thousands of Canadians share our priorities on issues ranging from antisemitism to Israel to Jewish poverty.

      • Fighting Antisemitism on Our Doorstep

        Today, the largest distributor of antisemitic propaganda in Canada is “Your Ward News,” a newspaper delivered free of charge, pushing vicious anti-Jewish stereotypes and conspiracy theories, as well as toxic racist and misogynist content.

        Following CIJA’s efforts, the federal government took the rare step of banning the publishers from using Canada Post to deliver the paper or any other correspondence. When the publishers challenged this action, CIJA led the case against them at an independent tribunal, leading to hate crime charges being laid against both the publisher and the editor of the paper.

        This is just one example of how you help support CIJA’s team of political, communications, and security experts in holding antisemites accountable and combating the spread of toxic hate. CIJA’s knowledge, multifaceted approach and constructive relationships with leaders across Canada are crucial in achieving results.

      • Jewish Federations of Canada (UIA)

        Jewish Federations of Canada – UIA is the national organization of Jewish Federations that responds to the needs of Jews across the globe, with offices in Jerusalem and Toronto. Nationally, it serves Jewish federated and non-federated communities with programs and services. In Israel, it is responsible for transforming campaign contributions into social welfare and educational programs. The fundamental themes guiding the organization are: connecting Canadian Jews in all size communities to each other, to Israel and world Jewry; strengthening Jewish identity and Israel engagement in the next generation; and financial resource development and leadership development.
