Jewish Communal Appeal [JCA]
The Jewish Communal Appeal is the fundraiser, planner and facilitator for the New South Wales and ACT Jewish communities.
Established in 1967, the JCA was founded to manage a communal appeal and to enable an equitable distribution of communal funds. The first appeal, some 42 years ago raised $340,000.
JCA has since grown and the range of Jewish organisations and services has continued to expand. Today, there are 21 member organisations covering areas including community care, education, disability services, health, aged care, cultural affairs, political and physical security and sport.
In addition to raising funds for distribution amongst its member organisations, the JCA facilitates appropriate interaction between communal organisations to ensure appropriate use of resources and plans for future communal needs.
JCA is further committed to ensuring that this community remains one of the most vibrant and robust Jewish communities in the world. They work to engage, educate and support the community in an attempt to strengthen Jewish continuity and to preserve the Jewish legacy for future generations.
