Our Mission



Our mission

To enhance Jewish life in Central and Eastern Europe (‘CEE’).


We fulfill that mission in the following ways:

  1. Promote formal and informal education and talent development within Jewish Communities;
  2. Promote dissemination of knowledge within and amongst Jewish communities;
  3. Promote community-building activities by Jewish communities;
  4. Promote Jewish culture;
  5. Promote mutual understanding and dialogue between Jewish and non-Jewish people to decrease antisemitism.


Our role

To support grassroot organizations and community workers in CEE (‘our partners’). Our partners are mainly Jewish organizations and community workers and our support is mainly financial.


In exceptional cases, if civilians are the victims of conflict situations and are in urgent need, we can financially support assistance to them offered by Jewish and/or Israeli entities.

Our Logo



The award policy of the Dutch Jewish Humanitarian Fund is based on the principles of human rights and tzedakah. 


Tzedakah is not a privilege but a moral right. The aim of tzedakah is to establish a just society. These principles are embedded in the Jewish tradition. In Leviticus XIX (9) is the admonition 'not [to] wholly reap the corners of thy field' but to leave them for the poor.


Our logo (a rectangle with a corner cut off) symbolizes these values.
