St. Paul Jewish Community Campaign for COVID Relief

Our friends and neighbors are hurting:

  • Seniors who can't safely shop or go out need food 
  • People who have lost their jobs need help to pay housing, food and medical bills
  • Requests for mental health services are skyrocketing as illness, isolation and fear increase
  • The cost of PPE, testing and other precautions to protect essential workers is enormous 


Every dollar you give will be matched by 50%* when you make a new gift to the Yad B'Yad Campaign for COVID Relief by Dec. 31, 2020 


$100,000 in matching funds has been earmarked for St. Paul by the Jewish Federations of North America Human Services Matching Fund. Help us turn $200,000 into $300,000 with your gift! 

Please give to the Yad B’Yad COVID Relief Campaign TODAY.

Growing needs due to COVID-19

The Jewish institutions that faithfully serve our community face unprecedented challenges

100% of the funds raised will be dispersed to local Jewish organizations to support programs that provide emergency financial aid, food assistance, trauma support, mental and physical health and safety, education and professional training services, as well as safety measures for frontline workers, and resources as a result of being laid off or furloughed.

A Message from Jimmy Levine, Yad B'Yad Campaign Chair

"As a doctor, I see firsthand the devastating effects of COVID-19  in Minnesota. As a member of the Jewish community, I see impacts of this pandemic across our institutions. In our lifetime, there has been no greater challenge to the fabric of our community. The way in which we respond now will define us for years to come. 


We are stronger together. This is the moment to do what our community does best – come together to take care of each other."

Yad B'Yad is a partnership between St. Paul Jewish Federation and these community organizations:
