IAJF COVID-19 Community Response
Since the start of the crisis, IAJF has been hard at work trying to reduce the burdens on the community by launching the IAJF COVID-19 Community Response.

IAJF is here for the needy. Food is a particularly significant challenge at this time - for those in the community who already had financial needs before the Coronavirus hit, for those whose income is now impacted due to the crisis, and for seniors who simply cannot risk leaving the house to shop due to health concerns. To date we have:

*Purchased supplemental groceries for dozens of families

*Worked with UJA and Commonpoint Queens to bring in over 300 boxes of food pantry items

*Sponsored and delivered 844 holiday meals during Passover, including Seder items for the first nights

*Sponsored several weeks each of Shabbat dinners for 200 people in need

IAJF is here for our dedicated area healthcare workers and local businesses. In support of area restaurants, and as a show of appreciation to healthcare workers, IAJF arranged for the delivery of hundreds of meals to local hospitals over a period of 3 weeks in April and May, 2020.


IAJF is here for the community.
  • IAJF is sponsoring local mask giveaways. Seven thousand masks were distributed to Great Neck residents at a mask giveaway which took place April 28th in the parking lot of the main branch of the Great Neck Library with the assistance of the Great Neck Library and the Chamber of Commerce. Two thousand masks have also been distributed at the St. Aloysius and High Street food pantries. In addition, 6,000 masks were donated to Commonpoint Queens for use by their staff and clients. Check our facebook page for information on future giveaways (www.facebook.com/IAJFNY).


  • The Tikvah Program, our partnership with Commonpoint Queens, also continues full steam ahead. Social workers are available to connect you to financial planning, employment assistance, counseling, food services, and much more. Contact Leslie Kraut: 718-225-6750 ext. 248
