By Avgar Amos, Roni Kaufman, Leonid Kolton, Sofia Abramova

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 2003

After the fall of communism there was a socio-economic-political breakdown affecting all areas of life in the fomer Soviet Union. The Joint Distirbution Committee (JDC) worked to provide immediate relief in a way that would foster the rebuilding of a Jewish communal infrastructure. The Hesed centers fulfill those aims and are based on the principles of voluntarism, Yiddishkeit, and a community orientation.
