Shaping the Social Future of Israel

The Joint (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee) is the largest Jewish humanitarian organization in the world. Our goal in Israel is to promote quality of life and equal opportunity and to narrow socioeconomic gaps in Israeli society.

Partnership is in Our Name

We are Israel's center for social R&D, working in strategic cooperation with the government, municipalities and local authorities, the non-profit and business sectors, and other partners.

Since 1914

The Joint operates in 70 countries, providing a safety net for Jews in distress, strengthening and building Jewish communities, and supplying relief and rescue in times of crisis and disaster.

Success Stories

The personal story and success of every program participant is a whole world in itself. We invite you to get to know the people behind the numbers.
