Who We Are: Our Mission
To support the well-being and continuity of the Jewish people
in greater Fort Wayne, in Israel, and throughout the world.
Statement on Recent Bomb Threats
“Bomb threats continue to be called in to Jewish centers around the nation. So far, all such threats have been false alarms. Yet the callers have achieved their goal – to make the Jews of America feel insecure and vulnerable. This is a time when we American Jews should be taking our lead from our Israeli brothers and sisters. We need to do all we can to protect our people while not letting these threats interfere with our going about our business of daily living. If we are afraid to act or speak out, then our enemies have already won.”
Dr. Ronald Friedman, President
Jaki Schreier, Executive Director

Now entering its sixth year, the conflict in Syria continues to take a drastic toll on the lives of the Syrian people. With more than 11 million innocent civilians forced to flee, the humanitarian crisis has reached grave proportions. The situation in the besieged city of Aleppo is particularly dire, as reports of crimes against humanity have taken the suffering to a new level.
Our people have a long history of humanitarian activity aiding both Jews and non-Jews during times of crisis, and we know many of you are looking for a way to help. Jewish Federations are fortunate to partner with JDC and the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR), which has been delivering humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees and displaced people since 2013. As people in Aleppo are being evacuated, the JCDR is working to ensure that essential items like food, medicine and clean water are delivered in as quick and efficient a manner as possible. You can help support their efforts by donating here or by contacting your local Jewish Federation.

The Jewish Council for Public Affairs strongly condemns the atrocities currently underway in Syria, including the most recent executions of innocent civilians in Aleppo. JCPA calls on the Assad regime, as well as Russia and Iran, to put an end to the violence and seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
“Today, we are left heartbroken and grieving at the senseless destruction currently underway in Aleppo,” said JCPA President and CEO, David Bernstein. “It is truly tragic that in this day and age, the international community has not figured out a way to prevent the mass slaughter of vulnerable populations. The images of children fleeing for their lives and of desperate posts on social media is a sobering reminder of the horror happening in Syria every day,” he added. “Never again means never again for everybody.”
