We are very excited to welcome our supporters, partners, and friends to Israel for the 18th "Chai" Anniversary Celebration. Last week, we recognized the accomplishments of the partnership between JDC, UJA-Federation, and the Government of Israel since Ashalim's founding in 1998 (pictured below). Over the two day "Chai" Celebration in Israel, we hope reflect on our achievements and consider our future opportunities to develop services for children, youth, young adults, and families at risk in Israel.  


JDC-Israel Ashalim was established in 1998 as a strategic partnership between JDC-Israel, the Israeli government, and the UJA - Federation of New York.

Ashalim develops solutions and services for young at risk populations, starting from birth to age 25, in order to ensure the welfare and well-being of children, youth, young adults, and families at risk.

Ashalim works on personal, familial, and social levels to expand the range of available opportunities for children, youth, and young adults at risk, and their families.
