Program areas at Uja-Federation of New York

Caring for people in need and responding to crisis: uja allocates funds to nonprofits to support programs that provide critical aid and services to hundreds of thousands of people each year in New York city, westchester county, and long island. These nonprofits serve both jews and the broader New York community, including the poor and unemployed, immigrants, seniors, holocaust survivors, single parents, and people with autism and disabilities. The services they provide include housing, medical care, end-of-life and palliative care, mental health counseling, education, food programs, vocational education and guidance, and citizenship and acculturation skills. During the pandemic, uja has provided additional support (cont. On schedule o)beyond its normal activities, including emergency cash assistance, additional assistance to food pantries, and enhanced mental health services and employment counseling.uja also promotes volunteerism, facilitating the recruitment and training of volunteers who serve clients at dozens of nonprofits. Uja supports programs in israel and in nearly 70 other countries around the world that provide basic human services and enable immigration to israel by jews living in at-risk communities. In the aftermath of natural disasters in the us and abroad, and terrorism and wars in israel and elsewhere, uja, through its nonprofit partners, assists victims, provides trauma relief to individuals and communities, and works to build resilience. Responding to increasing anti-semitism, uja has developed and funded programs to enhance security for Jewish institutions in the New York area.
Deepening Jewish engagement and strengthening Jewish communities ("Jewish life"):uja supports innovative initiatives that encourage jews of all ages to explore their Jewish identity and provides funds for a range of programs that serve a diverse Jewish community. These programs strengthen synagogues, support college students by promoting Jewish life on campus, connect young jews to israel, and provide opportunities to engage interfaith families and unaffiliated jews. As part of its commitment to education and lifelong learning, uja provides support for informal and formal Jewish educational programs for both children and adults. Uja also provides funds for scholarships and teacher benefits (cont. On schedule o)at Jewish day schools and scholarships for israel experience programs and Jewish summer day and overnight camps, all important platforms for positive Jewish experience and engagement. Recognizing that israel is fundamental to the Jewish past, present, and future, uja also helps jews who choose to immigrate to israel. In addition, uja invests in strengthening israeli civil society to promote an inclusive, democratic, and thriving Jewish state. In both israel and New York, uja supports community relations organizations that promote equality and mutual respect among diverse populations and strengthen relationships between jews and the broader community, advocating around issues of common cause.
