What makes UJA so successful at addressing the challenges facing our community, and designing substantive and effective responses?
UJA Federation is the only organization focused on bringing community agencies together to increase our collective impact, provide better services, eliminate duplication and create innovative solutions.
By researching trends in the Jewish community, we are able to make effective, data driven funding decisions to benefit our community.
For every $1 raised in the Annual Campaign, UJA Federation was able to leverage and match an additional $0.46. These matching and leveraging opportunities are thanks to our work with governments, private foundations and mega-philanthropists.Learn more
In honour of Israel's 70th year of independence, UJA pulled out all the stops for the Blue & White Birthday Bash on April 19, 2018 at the Ontario Science Centre. Over 1,000 people from across the GTA came to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut and enjoy the festivities, including a DJ and an Israeli singer, drummers, a live painting performance, Israeli street food and sweets, and a dance floor packed with party-goers decked out in blue and white.Learn more
The Vienna Experience
Participants on the Sarah & Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre's week-long Vienna Trip for Young Professionals in June returned from their journey of Jewish discovery energized and eager to learn more about the Holocaust, and to engage with the Jewish community. The 12-member group benefitted from the unique opportunity to meet with a wide range of Holocaust experts, and visit various historic, cultural and political sites, in a remarkable experience learning about Jewish Vienna before, during and after the Holocaust.Learn more
A Strong Beginning
On September 6, 2018 UJA launched Campaign 2018 with a spectacular performance by world-renowned comic Jerry Seinfeld, one of the best observational comedians of all time. Over 3,200 guests came to the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts to hear the comedy legend and enjoy the annual event with family, friends and colleagues.
A record $29 million was raised at the biggest campaign launch to date in a fantastic show of support for UJA and our work on behalf of the Jewish community.
Standing in Solidarity
More than 5,000 members of the Jewish community, as well as many of our friends in the GTA, attended a vigil in Mel Lastman Square on October 29, 2018 in a sombre show of solidarity for the Jewish community of Pittsburgh and the entire Jewish people.
UJA Federation and our advocacy agent, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, remain profoundly grateful to religious leaders reflecting a myriad of faiths, political representatives from all three levels of government, civic and labour leaders, and numerous Jewish communal and synagogue organizations for an emotional and inspiring memorial in memory of the victims.
