Jewish Federation of Winnipeg / Combined Jewish Appeal
The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg/Combined Jewish Appeal is the central address of the Jewish community of Winnipeg and supports vital programs and services in the city and around the world. As it helps to feed and clothe the poor, educate the young, keep programs accessible to all and enhance Jewish community life, it is driven by Jewish values, energized by people and motivated by the idea of “tikkun olam”, the obligation to work toward bettering the world.
In 2011, The Asper Foundation donated almost $1,300,000 towards the general activities of the Combined Jewish Appeal and designated programs of The Asper Foundation. Of this amount, almost $600,00 is applied to Combined Jewish Appeal and Asper Foundation programs in Israel. These donations have been at these levels for more than 10 years.
As well, The Asper Foundation donated $1,000,000 to the Emergency Campaign of the Combined Jewish Appeal during the 2006 Second Lebanon War.
