All about our UJCVP
For more than 7 decades, we've helped strengthen the State of Israel through our partnership with The Jewish Federations of North America and their overseas partners.
The Jewish people have a long history of humanitarian activity to aid both Jews & non-Jews during times of crisis. As Rabbi Hillel said, "If I am not for myself, who am I? But if I am only for myself, what am I?"
