UJC Annual Campaign
The UJC of the Virginia Peninsula is proud to be a part of the global Jewish world as a member of the national Jewish Federations of North America system. National UJC represents and serves 155 Jewish federations and 400 independent Jewish communities across North America. It reflects the values of social justice and human rights that define the Jewish people and the values of caring that transform lives and perform miracles.
Through our overseas partners, The Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, national UJC represents and serves one of the world’s largest and most effective networks of social service providers and programs. JFNA, JAFI, and JDC professionals and volunteers – dedicated to safeguarding and enhancing Jewish life help meet the needs of all people, Jews and non-Jews, wherever they live.
As part of this world wide network The UJC of the Virginia Peninsula engages in an Annual Campaign which allows us to fulfill our mission of safeguarding the viability and growth of our local community while supporting our Jewish brothers and sisters around the world. Specifically our campaign allows us to:
Provide essential Jewish Community Center operating funds supporting seniors, youth, early childhood center, Community Hebrew School, Summer and Winter camps, Community Relations Council, and much more;
Provide support to other crucial UJC beneficiary agencies such as Jewish Family Service, Beth Sholom Village, The Hebrew Academy of Tidewater, local Hillels, and more;
Provide funds for our overseas partners JAFI and JDC who in turn support vital needs in Israel and around the world.
This annual campaign is planned and executed by a dedicated group of volunteers and professionals who make up the UJC Campaign Council who lead in our efforts to preserve Jewish life here and abroad. The dozens of solicitors who volunteer endless hours to work on the campaign are committed to reaching as many community members as possible to encourage all of you to support the community vision. When contacted by a volunteer, please answer their calls. Meet with them and dig deep in your pockets to help us reach this year’s campaign goal. Whether your gift is $36,000 or $36, each gift counts!
