Today, JDC’s work in the former Soviet Union focuses on: 

Saving the poorest Jews by providing food, medication, home care and winter relief for impoverished elderly Jews; and delivering critical nutritional assistance, health care, financial support, and child-development services to the neediest children and their families.

Revitalizing Jewish life by developing the community infrastructure, leadership, and educational resources necessary to ensure a Jewish future.

Developing tomorrow’s Jewish leaders by training volunteers and professionals to lay the foundations for communal Jewish life and nurturing emerging visionaries to create Jewish learning initiatives and experiences for children and youth.

The Center for Curative Pedagogic provide assistance to one of the most vulnerable social groups – to children suffering from multiple developmental disorders, autism, speech disorders, mental retardation, infantile cerebral palsy and genetic disorders as well as to their families.

Children attend individual and group sessions in the Center.

The principle of the Center is to work in the first place with a child and not with a diagnosis. Professionals of the Center help every child to maximally develop her/his potential, to become independent and to find her/his path in life. It means that a child should enjoy communicating with peers and grown-ups, attend kindergarten and school and master an interesting vocation instead of spending his life locked at home or in a special boarding school.
