As we reflect during these Days of Awe -

Join our community for Reverse Tashlich


What we've made possible

  • Evacuated over 12,900 Jews from Ukraine
  • Provided over 39,178 refugees with food, medicine, trauma support, and more
  • Received over 18,412 incoming calls and made over 44,230 outgoing calls.
  • Humanitarian assistance – over 617 tons  



Going forward:

  • Meeting increasing human needs in Ukraine
  •  Integrating remaining refugees into European communities  
  •  Addressing Jewish needs in former Soviet countries impacted by the crisis  
  •  Rebuilding and adapting communities for the future, both in Ukraine and Europe

JAFI is moving from the emergency phase to the long-term planning phase.  Focused on the following four elements: the remainder of rescue and aliyah, the long-term absorption (klita) in Israel, strengthening Jewish communities in Europe and finally rebuilding Ukrainian Jewish communities and life in the aftermath of the war.


Reaching as many Ukrainians as possible to let them know that they have a home in Israel. At the current time, over 10,000 are still waiting to make Aliyah as soon as possible - primarily from Russia. Working very hard to try to get those people to Israel as quickly as possible.  Because of the lack of flights from Russia, they are currently exploring the option of flying olim to a different country before flying to Israel.
