Jewish Poverty. A crisis of affordability in the Jewish day-school system. Hatred and antisemitism. A growing chasm between Israel and the Diaspora. Big issues demand big solutions. Our size is our strongest asset. We stand at the core of a network of more than 100 partner agencies, which means we have hundreds of experts who can collaborate and innovate to find the best solutions to tackle every challenge. And we can be a loud voice in the halls of power, advocating for Jewish life and for Israel.
In times of crisis. When hatred and murder struck in Pittsburgh, UJA mobilized more than 5,000 Torontonians of all faiths and political backgrounds. Together, we all took an emotional and powerful stand against antisemitism.
In times of celebration. When every year, more than 20,000 members of the community Walk with Israel, in a breathtaking display of unity and pride for Jewish life and for our spiritual homeland.
At all times. We care about building and growing our diverse community. We’re Jews of every level of observance from all corners of the globe; every race and sexual orientation. We’re Canadian. Israeli. Russian. But we all share a common bond and a belief that when Jews of all backgrounds come together, we are at our strongest.
For every $1 you give to UJA, we attract an additional 46¢. We have the gravitas to partner with governments, philanthropists, and corporate sponsors to leverage significant financial investments, allowing us to stretch your dollars further and be as efficient as we are effective in helping people.
