Update on Ukraine Relief Efforts


February 24, 2023 marks one year since the war broke out in Ukraine. This last year has been proof of the impact that our system has when we come together to support communities around the world. To support Ukraine, every single Federation, in all 146 communities came together and raised $85 million – that’s nearly a quarter of a million dollars per day. These dollars ensured: 


  • 500,000 people received humanitarian assistance, relief, or support

  • 700,000 meals distributed

  • 65,000 people supported in making aliyah

  • 130,000 received medical care 

  • 4,000 medical and mental health professionals trained

  • 180,000 Ukrainian newcomers supported by our advocacy

How you can support the Federation


The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans was built for moments like this—from COVID-19 to hurricanes, we have tackled our community’s most devastating and seemingly intractable challenges. As the Talmud mandates, Kol yisrael arevim zeh bazeh—all Jews are responsible for one another, and your Federation takes that seriously. As the connective tissue for Jewish New Orleans, our mission has never been more clear- to inspire, connect and sustain our Jewish organizations for the future of our community.

  • An Ally in Federation

    After coming out, Idit and Asher didn't have spaces where they could be both gay and Jewish. So they built them. And with help from Federations, they've revolutionized what it means to be Jewish and gay in America.

  • Moving Mountains in Nepal

    The future looked bright for Mira’s family. They were saving up and had even added a new room to their modest home. Then the twin earthquakes of 2015 destroyed all their progress. By helping her tap into her passion for sewing, Federation partner JDC helped Mira lift her family out of a tent city and back into their home. Now, their future looks bright once again.
