The Israel Trauma Coalition was initiated in 2002 by the UJA Federation of New York in order to create coordination between a wide variety of trauma related interventions. The intent was to avoid duplication of services, inefficient use of resources and gaps in appropriate response. The ITC ensures not only a comprehensive view of needs but the delivery of services in a timely fashion. The organization is involved in direct care, training and supervision, and creating responses and preparedness at both the municipal and national levels. No organization can do this alone; it takes a Coalition.
Since 1929, the Jewish Agency for Israel has been partnering with world Jewry to strengthen the people and State of Israel. This global Jewish partnership has enabled Jewish Agency programs, which are focused on three primary realms of activity: facilitating the aliyah and integration of Jews in their ancestral homeland, connecting the next generation of Jews to Israel and their heritage through Israel-based educational initiatives, and shaping an Israeli society of opportunity and development by confronting the challenges in Israel’s social and geographic periphery.

The NCSJ advocates on behalf of Jews in Russia, Ukraine, the Baltic States & Eurasia. When Soviet Jews were at risk and desperate to move to Israel, the American Jewish community rallied behind NCSJ to help Soviet Jews gain their freedom. Today, NCSJ helps to secure the well-being of over one million Jews who are rebuilding Jewish life in the former Soviet Union. Comprising nearly 50 national organizations and over 300 local federations, community councils, and committees, NCSJ works on behalf of federations to ensure that political conditions in the Former Soviet Union allow Jews to live freely as Jews.
