Rebecca\'s Mission to Turkey

Since 1914, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) puts the principle that all Jews are responsible for one another into action. In more than 70 countries, JDC rescues Jews in danger, provides relief to those in distress, revitalizes overseas Jewish communities, and helps Israel overcome the social challenges of its most vulnerable citizens. JDC also provides non-sectarian emergency relief and long-term development assistance worldwide.

I have the opportunity to see first-hand the work of JDC in Turkey, a vibrant and unique community of 25,000 Jews who are now struggling with threats of terrorism and security challenges.

Through meaningful volunteer projects and interpersonal interactions during this mission, I hope to learn about challenges facing Jewish communities abroad, gain insight into global Jewish needs, connect with local Jewish peers, and explore notions of global Jewish identity and collective responsibility.
