Ezra Campaign

Relief for People in the Jewish Community.

Funds raised through the Ezra Campaign support Jewish Families in Ottawa.

About the Ezra Campaign

You may not realize it, but we have many neighbours like this one; people we may know of from the community, but don’t truly know what they live with every day. 

The supports they need today, they may also need, in many cases, tomorrow and many tomorrows after that.

For over forty years JFS has been building a stronger, more resilient and more tolerant Ottawa, all through direct social service, partnership and advocacy.

There will always be people in need and there will always be JFS Ottawa to support them when they need it, how they need it and where they need it. 

You can help us guide people towards stability and health through an increased Ezra Fund gift.

MYTH

THERE ARE NO JEWS IN OUR COMMUNITY LIVING IN POVERTY.

Fact

More than 1,200 Jews in Ottawa are living in Poverty. They may be our neighbours, friends, and family. They may be new immigrants here to make a fresh start, individuals struggling with mental health issues, seniors, Holocaust survivors, families with dual working parents, and single parent families.
