Jewish Social Welfare Commission

The Jewish Social Welfare Commission was established in 1999 for the purpose of developing effective and professional means of providing social assistance to members of the Jewish community in Poland. In accordance with the Jewish tradition, the Jewish Social Welfare Commission insists that giving is an essential part of human dignity and thereby strives to enhance the quality of life for all welfare clients. Members of the Commission include representatives from a variety of Jewish organizations operating in Poland: The Union of Jewish Religious Communities, the Jewish Social/Cultural Association, the Children of the Holocaust Association, the Jewish War Veterans’ Association, and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).
