January Tzedakah Box: JDC's Coronavirus Emergency Fund for Israel

Beth Am's Tzedakah collection for this month will benefit JDC's Coronavirus Emergency Fund for Israel. The coronavirus pandemic has created a public health crisis unprecedented in most of our lifetimes, leading to vast emergency humanitarian needs worldwide. As the global Jewish 9-1-1, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee's (JDC) 106 years of expertise and experience responding to crises is needed more than ever. Right now, we are addressing emerging needs and helping communities adjust to this new reality, working to ensure that we can continue to serve the tens of thousands of people who depend on us every day.   

In Israel, JDC's work includes:

  • Providing essential care services and meals in 180 locations for two months for quarantined and homebound elderly, including: medicine, housekeeping, home repairs and transportation for caregivers
  • Recruiting, training, and coordinating volunteers in over 50 locations to provide services to vulnerable elderly
  • Coordinating online resources in Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, and Amharic that will reach over 1 million Israelis

Learn more about the JDC and support their efforts in Israel, responding to the coronavirus.

Thank you.
