Joint Distribution Committee



The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) has given global expression to the principle that all Jews are responsible for one another. Working today in more than 65 countries, JDC acts on behalf of North America’s Jewish communities and others worldwide to rescue Jews in danger, provide relief to those in distress, revitalize overseas Jewish communities and help Israel overcome the social challenges of its most vulnerable citizens. JDC also provides nonsectarian emergency relief and long-term development assistance worldwide.
