Free

JDC, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee or “the Joint,” is the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, impacting millions of lives in more than 70 countries today. JDC leverages a century’s experience confronting poverty and crisis around the world to save the world’s poorest Jews, build Jewish life and leaders, empower Israel’s future, and rescue victims of global emergencies.

Aviva Steinberger joined the staff of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC or “the Joint), the largest Jewish humanitarian organization, in 2013.  Aviva works toward aligning JDC’s extensive reach and global priorities with the organization’s budget and annual planning cycle. Prior to joining JDC Aviva was the Director of World Trade Center Business Recovery for New York State. Immediately after 9/11/2001 she developed and oversaw recovery and retention programs that distributed $800 million to 14,000 businesses. After moving to Israel in 2009 she consulted for the US federal government and Israeli NGOs on recovery projects after Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and the earthquake in Haiti.  Aviva’s presentation will focus on how JDC incorporates the organization’s core values to guide work across time and regions.
