Our Impact in Israel

How do we ensure long-term economic and social stability for Jews living overseas and in Israel? By funding much-needed programs that provide a safety net for our most vulnerable people. These specialized programs, funded in part by Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver through the Federation Annual Campaign, touch the lives of at-risk youth, impoverished seniors and those living in economically fragile areas.

Together, we’re reaching out to Jews around the world.
