In recent years the JCCs in Ukraine have developed substantially and became the shining stars of their respective Jewish communities. Since the outbreak of the war, in February 2022, all the JCCs in Ukraine turned into centers for welfare and humanitarian aid while continuing to provide a wide range of educational, social and recreational programs. Each day, they continue to save lives. However, it has become clear that the JCCs need to expand their sources of income and support, as they prepare for the post-war period with optimism for a brighter future.


In this Hub, JCC Global aims to present successful and innovative models for capacity building that are tailored to the culture and current needs of JCCs in Ukraine. By doing so, we intend to provide valuable tools and strategies to enhance resilience and long-term sustainability. Additionally, this initiative will open new avenues for communication and collaboration with JCCs worldwide, fostering global connections and partnerships.


  1. Develop the capacity of JCCs in Ukraine to enhance resilience and ensure long-term sustainability.

  2. Integrate new building blocks for resource development, equipping JCCs with the necessary skills and knowledge to secure diverse and sustainable sources of funding.
