  • Immigration: How does Israel absorb and integrate new immigrants and respond to asylum seekers?
  • Employment: What populations are behind the employment curve? How can Israel train a diverse and productive workforce for the future?
  • Education: Who are Israel's at-risk students? How do we outreach to them and help them succeed?
  • Inclusion: What is Israel doing to create a more welcoming society? How can public-private-NGO partnerships lead the way?

They were surrounded by the efforts of loving JDC hearts from around the world. Where others turned away, the Joint brought new hope and loving support to Israel's lost children. I was and continue to be honored to be associated with a humanitarian effort of this magnitude. I am part of something that brings light where there is darkness. Like those students, I too have been touched by the JDC."
