Serious & brilliant. JDC has a smart approach to supporting underserved Jews and supporting Jewish learning and heritage. They work to enhance the lives of Jews in areas that have had little support. They do not impose litmus tests but, instead, meet Jews (worldwide) where they are and respond to their needs
