THANK YOU.

"Your gift sends a clear message: All Jews are family. We would never hesitate to help a family member struggling with poverty or facing threats to their wellbeing. And we would never allow one of our children to become disconnected from the family. So too, this must be our pledge to our fellow Jews - made possible thanks to your generosity.”

How Your Gift Maximizes Our Impact

Your Gift Inspires A Broad Vision

For thousands of years, the Jewish people have built strong communities, changed the world, and preserved our distinct values and identity with pride. Through it all, we have evolved to overcome whatever challenges confront us—not only surviving, but ultimately thriving.

While Toronto is home to one of the Diaspora’s strongest communities, we are not immune to growing challenges affecting the Jewish world today. Antisemitism is rising. Jewish poverty in our city is growing. The cost of living Jewishly is posing a barrier for many young families. And, at a time when identifying as Jewish is a matter of choice, there is a growing risk that many young Jews will be disengaged or disaffected from Judaism, Israel, and our community.

identifying as Jewish is a matter of choice, there is a growing risk that many young Jews will be disengaged or disaffected from Judaism, Israel, and our community.

There are many worthy charities. Only UJA has the vision, strategy, and reach to tackle the big challenges facing our community. In so doing, we can strengthen Jewish pride at a time when it is being challenged—and ensure that every Jew in our city, today and in the future, can be a part of the extraordinary Jewish journey.

Your gift fuels a strategic approach

Your gift goes further with UJA. Through our work with governments, private foundations, and philanthropists, we generate matching funds amounting to an average of 48¢ per dollar raised through UJA’s Annual Campaign.

Your gift maximizes our efficiency. With operating costs at 13.1%, we make every dollar count. Research indicates that this is roughly 50% lower than other charities. In other words, when you give a dollar to UJA, 87¢ goes to core priorities, compared to an average of 74¢ when giving to other charities.

Your gift allows us to set the standard for impactful charities. UJA has been recognized by both Maclean’s and MoneySense as one of Canada’s 100 best charities for 2020.

Your gift enables us to constantly innovate. We conduct substantive research to identify needs in the community and measure progress. This data allows us to ensure we fund the programs and initiatives that will have the greatest impact.

IMPACT

Your gift strengthens our community's reach

The problems affecting the Jewish people require comprehensive solutions—not band-aid programs or one-off initiatives. These can only be achieved through a coordinated approach drawing on every organization that has a role to play.

Your gift strengthens UJA’s network of more than 100 organizations and ensures we can make the greatest possible impact. To cite one example, our strategy to combat antisemitism includes robust advocacy and lobbying campaigns, community security training, strong relationships with law enforcement, compelling Holocaust education, effective campus advocacy, and education to empower young Jews to cherish their identity and defend it with pride. Our broad reach also enables us to mobilize our entire community to respond to crises in real-time, such as emergency campaigns to support vulnerable Israelis in times of conflict.

COUNTERING ANTISEMITISM & IMPROVING COMMUNITY SECURITY

Your gift helps Protect what Matters Most

Antisemitism is on the rise globally. Canada is not immune, as confirmed by Statistics Canada research showing that an antisemitic hate crime takes place on average once every 24 hours.

Antisemitism threatens Jewish lives and the Jewish way of life. Our community will not remain a thriving one if we cannot continue living Jewishly—openly, proudly, and as a valued and integral part of Canadian society.

From advocacy and campus activism to community security and Holocaust education, your gift is helping us fight a battle we cannot afford to lose.

COMBATING HATE ON CAMPUS

Antisemitism on campus and online—often in the form of hatred targeting Jews who identify with Israel—requires a forceful and effective response. Your gift strengthens Jewish life on campus through our partner Hillel Ontario, empowering students to proudly express their Jewish identity, challenge antisemitism, dispel myths and lies about Israel, and counter anti Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns.

EDUCATING ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST

Holocaust education is a powerful way to teach the next generation about the dangers of hate. Your gift supports UJA’s Sarah & Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, providing thousands of students in our city—most of whom are non-Jewish—with the increasingly rare opportunity to meet a survivor and learn about the Shoah, including via cutting-edge teaching methods. By offering creative resources for teachers, the Centre empowers educators to offer impactful learning at schools throughout the GTA.

ADVOCATING FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE

To combat antisemitism effectively, we need strong allies in government, civil society, and other faith and ethnic communities. Your gift helps fund the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), UJA’s advocacy agent and one of Canada’s most active lobbying organizations.

CIJA advocates for key legislation, provides expert testimony in Parliament, briefs leaders on issues that matter to our community, and builds relationships with Canadians in key positions of influence. Through impactful missions to Israel, CIJA educates hundreds of non-Jewish leaders about the dangers of anti Zionism and antisemitism. Through action alerts, CIJA mobilizes tens of thousands of community members to send strategic messages to our elected officials. And through partnerships formed with other communities, CIJA mobilizes allies and builds coalitions to defend human rights and counter all forms of hatred.

In Spring 2019, a home in Thornhill Woods was defaced with antisemitic graffiti. The above image is Elena's powerful response (created digitally).

Elena's Story

“HILLEL IS A BIG PART OF THE REASON THE JEWISH COMMUNITY ON CAMPUS IS SO STRONG. NOW I PROUDLY WEAR MY JUDAISM ON MY SLEEVE.”

Elena’s confidence in sharing her Jewish identity is fairly new. The Studio Art major at Guelph University, raised in the relative security of Thornhill’s Jewish community and the Jewish day school system, was shocked to learn she was the first Jew many of her fellow students had ever met when she began her post-secondary studies.

She credits Guelph Hillel with helping her overcome the unease she felt discussing her Jewish faith, explaining: “Hillel encourages Jewish students’ involvement by providing kosher food at educational events, running Shabbat dinners on campus, and being a support system if any antisemitism or discomfort occurs. It’s a major reason why I am so involved in the Jewish community.”

events, running Shabbat dinners on campus, and being a support system if any antisemitism or discomfort occurs. It’s a major reason why I am so involved in the Jewish community.”

Four years later and preparing to graduate, Elena has come a long way from the first-year student who was hesitant to share her Jewish identity with the wider student community, boasting: “Now I proudly wear my Judaism on my sleeve.”

UJA Innovation

In 2019, UJA launched our Community Security initiative to strengthen security measures, training, and preparedness, particularly at local Jewish institutions. This work is focused on five core elements:

UJA Community Security



  1. Police coordination and incident support. We have built strong working relationships and remain in ongoing contact with senior police officials in Toronto and York Region.
  2. Training. We provide threat and awareness training, active threat (lockdown) training, and trauma first aid programs.
  3. Site inspections. Our team inspects synagogues, day schools, and other Jewish facilities to identify security gaps and offer practical solutions.
  4. Patrols. Our team checks in—particularly during peak attendance times—to make sure security operations proceed smoothly at synagogues across the city.
  5. Volunteers. We are building a cohort of community members who donate their time to assist in security duties at their local synagogue or day school.

130+

Jewish facilities in UJA Community Security’s network were provided with ongoing guidance and incident notification

60+

Jewish facilities in our city have received on-site security support

50+

locations were patrolled during the 2019 High Holidays

“It seems over the last few years, UJA has really been committed to protecting the Jewish community in a wonderful way—both by being protective when something happens but, even more so, by being proactive in educating us on how to protect ourselves.”
- Rivkah Weiss, School Administrator, Toronto Cheder

Fighting poverty & improving wellbeing

YOUR GIFT HELPS JEWISH COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN DESPERATE NEED

Today, 24,000 Jews in the Greater Toronto Area struggle with poverty. That’s one in eight community members—and the numbers are growing.

This is a complex challenge requiring a multi-faceted strategy. No single program or agency can address the factors that lead to poverty and isolation.

Your gift to UJA supports a network of social service agencies, each of which holds part of the solution. Thanks to you, vulnerable Jews in our city are getting the help they need.

Seniors Health & Wellness

Without support, aging can be painful and lonely—especially when facing health challenges, dementia, or language barriers. Your gift helps Jewish seniors—including Holocaust survivors—live healthier, safer, and more socially connected lives. This includes funding recreational programs for the elderly, kosher Meals on Wheels, homecare, and transportation to medical appointments.

Transforming Lives

Sometimes a hand-up can empower someone in need to reach their full potential. Your gift to UJA helps countless community members achieve self-sufficiency, including through career counselling, financial literacy programs, interest-free loans, and integration support for Jewish immigrants to Toronto. UJA-funded social, recreational, and cultural programs provide meaningful opportunities for those with disabilities or special needs.

Crisis Intervention

Life’s challenges can be crippling when faced alone. Your gift funds services that help vulnerable community members overcome a range of serious issues. This includes domestic violence, addiction and dependency, and mental health concerns. UJA-funded, home-centred hospice programs offer compassionate care to those approaching life’s end.

Financial Stability

No one should have to choose between buying groceries or winter clothes for their children. Your gift provides life-changing assistance to those in need. This includes affordable housing and financial aid to cover essential needs, such as food, clothing, utilities, transit passes, and medical expenses.

Rachel's Story

“IF I DIDN’T HAVE THE SUPPORT OF UJA AND A NUMBER OF ITS PARTNER AGENCIES, THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD’VE GOTTEN THROUGH THIS PERIOD OF MY LIFE.”

Rachel* is a single mother in our community. She has been doing her best to support her teenage son, who has been diagnosed with cognitive disabilities and requires regular medical appointments and other support. She has survived abuse, threats from her ex-husband, financial instability, and near homelessness.

After turning to UJA’s network of service agencies for help, Rachel is not just surviving. She is thriving. As a result of a combination of financial aid, employment services, and emotional support—all funded by UJA—her life has been transformed.

services, and emotional support—all funded by UJA—her life has been transformed.

“If I didn’t have the support of UJA and a number of its partner agencies, there is no way I would’ve gotten through this period of my life. Even when I didn’t believe in myself and wanted to give up, none of them gave up on me. And that’s why these organizations and their donors are so vital.”

Healthy At Home



UJA’s Healthy at Home initiative dramatically elevates the quality-of-life of low-income, socially isolated seniors and Holocaust survivors at 20 apartment buildings along the Bathurst Street corridor in North York and York Region. By providing free kosher meals and social, recreational, educational, cultural, and health-promotion programs, Healthy at Home is a lifeline for some of our community’s most vulnerable. The program’s success has attracted the interest of researchers in the field of seniors’ wellness, and is now one among several models being examined as part of a global study funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

1,300+

low-income, socially isolated seniors enjoyed programming and hot meals

93%

“I struggle to leave my apartment because I am disabled. Having a program that I can take the elevator to has been wonderful. Having a meal together makes it feel like a family meal. I am so happy that Healthy at Home started in my building.”

STRENGTHENING CONNECTIONS TO ISRAEL & EMPOWERING GLOBAL JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN NEED

YOUR GIFT MAKES LIFE EASIER AND SAFER FOR VULNERABLE JEWS IN TROUBLED PARTS OF THE WORLD

In Israel and throughout the Jewish world, far too many live in dangerous or challenging conditions. Here in Toronto, when young Jews are disconnected from Israel and lack a deep sense of peoplehood, Jewish identity declines, Jewish pride is damaged, and the Israel-Diaspora relationship fractures.

Your gift provides life-changing support for vulnerable Jews in Israel and eighteen other countries. It also ensures young Jews in our city have opportunities to explore—and be inspired by—Israel.

STANDING WITH ISRAELIS

The sight of tens of thousands of community members standing in solidarity with Israel is awe-inspiring. In 2019, UJA celebrated its 50th Walk with Israel by returning to its historic roots in North York and launching the first-ever Bathurst Street Fest. In addition to mobilizing 30,000 community members, the event raised approximately $500,000 in support of educational and social initiatives in Israel’s partner cities of Bat Yam, Eilat/Eilot, and Sderot.

CONNECTING WITH ISRAELIS

Authentic, person-to-person relationships build powerful connections to Israel. Your gift supports UJA’s ShinShinim program, bringing recent Israeli high school graduates to Toronto for a year of service to our community. In 2019, UJA’s 22 ShinShinim provided dynamic Israel engagement programs for thousands of community members at more than 40 institutions, including schools, synagogues, and summer camps.

SUPPORTING JEWISH RENEWAL

One of the most exciting developments in modern Jewish history is the renewal of Jewish life and identity in the former Soviet bloc. Your gift funds this vital work, including Camp Szarvas—a life-changing opportunity for youth from 30 regional communities to discover their Jewish roots and heritage. Located in Hungary, the overnight camp fills the desire of a new, post-Soviet generation of young Jews to explore and express their Jewish identity.

FIGHTING HUNGER AT PASSOVER

Poverty hurts even more during Passover. Your gift helps fuel UJA’s Global Seder to Fight Hunger, which provides Kosher for Passover food to vulnerable Jews in Toronto, Cuba, and the Former Soviet Union—ensuring they can enjoy the festival with dignity.

SIMONA'S STORY

“IN JUST OVER A WEEK, I WENT FROM BEING AN APATHETIC 18-YEAR-OLD WITH A WEAK CONNECTION TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY TO FEELING A GREATER SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND BELONGING.”

Like many Jewish high school graduates who participate in Birthright Israel, Simona Newman knew little about the country when she boarded the plane for a ten-day adventure.

And, like so many other Birthright Israel participants, Simona was in for a profound transformation. “In the span of just over a week, I went from an apathetic 18-year-old with a very weak connection to the Jewish community to feeling a greater sense of community and belonging. This was pretty groundbreaking for me,” she explained.

Today, Simona works in the Jewish community helping young people foster meaningful relationships with Israel. “By using Birthright as a catalyst for an ongoing relationship with one’s Jewish identity, I have spent several years working to answer the question for young adults: 'what next?'”

“Young people are the future, and it’s imperative that we invest in them to keep the community and its spirit alive and well for generations to come!”

UJA Innovation

SDEROT SCIENCE CENTRE



Living far from Israel’s biggest cities can be challenging. Living under perpetual fear of rocket fire can be traumatizing. Through creative investments, like the UJA-funded Sderot Science Centre, we are helping build resilience and opportunity in Sderot—one of UJA’s partner communities, a short distance from the Gaza border.

This rocket-proof, state-of-the-art educational complex opened in early 2019 to provide local students with a secure and dynamic place to learn and explore. Through its creative programs—including Science, Technology, English and Math (STEM), cyber studies, robotics, and 3-D printing—the Centre fosters academic achievement and skills development.

450+

students enjoy programs every week

800

elementary students attended a variety of educational programs in the summer

700

kindergarten students participated in robotics and science classes in the summer

“The Centre is a safe environment where kids can gain knowledge and enjoy themselves. They come here happily with a great desire to learn, and the parents are more relaxed knowing their children are in a secure, safe, and educational environment. This is something that is very fun and satisfying to see.”
-Nikita Sumarov, Teacher, Sderot Science Centre

GROWING JEWISH IDENTITY & EDUCATION

YOUR GIFT STRENGTHENS JEWISH PRIDE AND KNOWLEDGE AMONG THOUSANDS OF YOUNG JEWS IN OUR CITY

Far too many families—especially in a city as expensive as Toronto—struggle to afford Jewish identity-building experiences for their children, such as day school or summer camp. Real estate costs have led a growing number to move beyond the traditional Bathurst corridor, further straining community connections. And research shows a growing number of young Jews are at risk of becoming disconnected from Judaism and Israel.

Your gift to UJA enables thousands of children and youth in our community to access meaningful experiences that build Jewish knowledge and inspire Jewish pride—with life-changing and lifelong results.

STRENGTHENING SUMMER CAMP

Jewish summer camp builds lasting connections to Jewish friends, community, traditions, and Israel. Your gift enables hundreds of children in our community to experience Jewish overnight camp. This includes programs such as The Weekender, created and funded by UJA's Silber Family Centre for Jewish Camping, which offers first-time campers a free or low-cost opportunity to experience the magic of Jewish summer camp.

NURTURING JUDAISM IN THE HOME

A love of Judaism begins in the home. Your gift helps fund PJ Library Toronto, a unique program that provides free Jewish-themed books on a monthly basis to community members from ages six months to eight years. In addition to enabling parents and children to enjoy Jewish stories together, PJ Library Toronto engages families in a variety of creative ways. This includes an extension of PJ Library for kids aged nine to eleven, weekly PJ parent grandparent and tot sessions, grassroots neighbourhood programs, and one-day camping adventures for young children.

SUSTAINING JEWISH EDUCATION

A Jewish day school education has a life-changing and lifelong impact. Your gift provides day school education to thousands of children in our community for whom it would otherwise be financially inaccessible. Thanks to generous community members like you, students throughout our community benefit every day from the gift of a Jewish education through UJA's diverse network of 14 affiliated day schools.

SUPPORTING PART-TIME EDUCATION

Every Jewish child in the public school system should have access to engaging, high-quality, part-time Jewish education. Your gift strengthens 27 part-time education programs attended by roughly 20% of all Jewish children in our city. These programs are increasingly organized to weave seamlessly into the daily schedules of families, with a growing number of after-school and "PD Day" Hebrew and Jewish learning opportunities available.

NICOLE'S STORY

“WE DON’T HAVE LARGE JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN NEWMARKET/AURORA… HAVING A SUKKAH WAS AN AMAZING WAY TO BRING FAMILIES FROM OUR COMMUNITY TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE!”

Nicole works with the PJ Library Neighbourhood Connect program in Newmarket, where a small but growing number of Jews live. As a Neighbourhood Connector, she hosts programs for Jewish families with young children to meet, develop friendships, and create a sense of community.

But when she built a sukkah for the first time and invited the town’s relatively small Jewish population to celebrate the Sukkot holiday with their neighbours, she was overwhelmed by the positive response.

“It was amazing to be able to celebrate this holiday as a community,” says Nicole. “We don’t have large Jewish communities in Newmarket/Aurora, so it generally doesn’t feel like a Jewish holiday in the same way it would in a more predominantly Jewish area. Having a sukkah was an amazing way to bring families from our community together to learn and celebrate! Everyone was so excited, especially many of the kids who had never been in a sukkah before.”

UJA Innovation

GENESIS



UJA Genesis empowers young professionals and families to play a role in shaping our community through leadership development, volunteerism, and impactful Jewish engagement. To cite one example among many in 2019, UJA Genesis launched the Littlest Volunteer, engaging more than 500 participants at its inaugural event. This fun and interactive volunteer experience mobilizes parents and children to support the work of UJA’s network of social service agencies. By providing meaningful, hands-on opportunities, UJA Genesis enables parents to demonstrate to their children the importance of tzedakah and community involvement.
