Israel today boasts one of the world’s most dynamic economies and one of the most diverse populations. Yet, it also has the second largest gap between the rich and poor in the OECD: 1.8 million men, women and children live below the poverty line and 39% of Israelis find it difficult to live on their current income.
JDC partners with the Israeli government to create strategies and solutions to combat the country’s biggest internal challenges. Through strategic interventions, JDC-Israel touches the lives of 1 in 4 Israelis, assisting the most vulnerable target populations such as: children and youth at-risk and their families, the elderly, immigrant groups, the chronically unemployed, and the disabled.
