Key figures
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié has protected certain key values for decades:
collegial mutual assistance resulting in aid for the most disadvantaged, a sense
of responsibility, a duty to pass on our identity and essential support for Israeli
society are the most pronounced.
The history of the FSJU is closely tied to that of the Jewish community in postwar France, whose structural organization within society relies on this central
The FSJU is one of the pillars of our community and nurtures close and continuous
relations with the State and public institutions, other communities, and in fact
the City broadly speaking: commitment and republican spirit, openness to
others, are virtues that we have always carried.
Beyond mere difficulties, we continue to face major challenges. The issues of
poverty, disability and social isolation today are tied to the crucial question of the
sustainability of Jewish life in France. This is reflected in the many departures
abroad and the discomfort that many of us experience on a daily basis due to
The FSJU forcefully and steadfastly responds to the needs of the most fragile
members of our community, placing solidarity at the heart of our action.
Furthermore, we support programs that reinforce Jewish identity and ensure its
longevity, in the fields of education, culture, youth and community life. They favor
the tranquil flourishing of Jewish life in France and its sustainability.
The well-being of Israelis is another major issue. The FSJU is committed to
providing significant financial assistance to associations in the field, which not
only resolve problems of social urgency, but also work toward the future by
focusing their efforts on children and education.
I believe in these missions more than ever, as well as our usefulness, which has
been demonstrated many times, and I am driven by the desire to see the FSJU
strengthened in performing these essential actions.
Ariel Goldmann
President of the Fonds Social Juif Unifié
Judaism open to the City
In 2014, the Fonds Social Juif Unifié grouped together 245 member associations
in the social, cultural, school and youth fields. Through its services and grants, it
supports 346 associative programs.
Both network head and operator
Recognized as a public utility, the FSJU is the correspondent for contact with
the public authorities and territorial collectivities. It also operates specific
programs. Reinforcing solidarity within the City, developing the Jewish identity,
creating synergies, encouraging initiatives and strengthening bonds with Israel
are strategic priorities. They are deployed under the responsibility of a President,
an Executive Office and a Steering Committee, elected every four years by an
electoral body made up of 40,000 donors.
The action of the Fonds Social Juif Unifié is funded through the annual collection
by the Appel Unifié Juif de France. The remaining resources come from the
Appel national pour la tsédaka (social action) and grants awarded by the Public
Authorities and private foundations, including the Foundation for the Memory of
the Shoah, the Fondation du Judaïsme Français (Foundation for French Judaism)
and the Fondation Sacta-Rashi (Sacta-Rashi Foundation).
A democratic institution

elects a Steering Committee, which elects the President and the Executive Office.
The National Council
It is made up of 228 members, including 108 elected members, 80 members
appointed by the associations and 40 coopted personalities. It defines the policy
of the Fonds Social Juif Unifié, elects the Steering Committee, and rules on
accounts, orientations and the budget. Elections are held every 4 years.
The Steering Committee

The FSJU budget is made up of 4 types of resources and 3 usage categories.
The FSJU mainly depends on the generosity of the public through dedicated fund
General collections for the Appel Unifié Juif de France intended for associations
and actions primarily to promote Jewish identity and solidarity
Collection from the national call for the tzedakah (Appel national pour la tsédaka,
ANPT) intended entirely for solidarity actions and social associations
ISF collection dedicated to a group of programs and associations in all of the
FSJU action areas
Allocated collection: donors clearly designate the intended use of the funds for
programs that they select
Private partnerships
Three major private foundations support the actions of the FSJU.
La Fondation pour la Memoire de la Shoah (Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah)
Private foundation, recognized as a public utility whose endowment comes from
the return by the State and French financial establishments of unclaimed assets
from the despoilment of the Jews during the Second World War.
La Fondation du Judaïsme Français (Foundation of the French Judaïsm)
Foundation created in 1974 by the Fonds Social Juif Unifié, the Oeuvre d’assistance
sociale à l’enfance juive (Social Aid Work for Jewish Children), the Action sociale
par l’habitat (Social Action in Housing), and natural persons and legal entities.
Recognized as a public utility in 1978.
Third biggest foundation in France, invested in a wide range of activities, within
which culture plays a prominent role.
La Fondation Sacta-Rashi
Foundation born from the 1999 merger of the Sacta Foundation and the Rashi
Foundation by the Leven family, intended to fund charitable, educational and
cultural projects.
Collectivities and public authorities
In addition to fundraising and private partnerships, the FSJU benefits from
public subsidies.
They are a necessary and strategic resource for balancing the budget. They help
provide significant support for the member associations and programs.
On the national level, the Ministry of Social Affairs, as part of the conventions on
objectives, and the Ministry for the city, youth and sports provide subsidies.
Locally, the regional and general councils subsidize specific FSJU programs or
member associations.
Bequests and donations
The FSJU has this additional resource, which is unpredictable, but particularly
significant in some years.
This specific resource makes it possible to meet exceptional and urgent needs
that may arise.
Two major usage areas stand out
FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS: this encompasses all of the grants disbursed to the member associations
of the FSJU; grant applications filed each year by the associations are carefully examined by our Budgetary
Steering Committees (BSC), which are responsible for distributing resources.
SERVICE CONTRIBUTIONS: these are financial and human resources invested by the FSJU to provide
an effective response to the needs of the community as a whole in the 5 action areas (youth, education,
culture, social, associative life).
Our professionals provide advice, analysis and direction; they also help locate additional funding.
And lastly,
OPERATIONS: in order to perform its mission fully, the FSJU must have a third use, i.e., operations.
This brings together all of the support teams and services that allow the institution to work correctly
(financial management, logistics, communication, etc.).
The difficulty for the FSJU is to anticipate its collections as accurately as possible in order to schedule all
of the actions to be carried out for the year in progress.
so close to one another
The fundraising office of the FSJU, the Appel Unifié Juif de France, has been
the central fundraising body for the Jewish community in France since 1968.
It provides financial support in France and Israel for social, educational and
cultural programs.
In France, the supported programs are those of the Fonds Social Juif Unifié and
its partners and member associations.
In Israel, the programs are identified by a strategic committee within the Fonds
Social Juif Unifié, which decides on funding for social and educational programs.
Today, the action of the Appel Unifié Juif de France is directly focused on Israeli
citizens and its network of associations through 5 major bodies fully recognized
by the State.
In each region, a committee run by a President and volunteer activists provides
outreach relations with donors.
The Appel Unifié Juif de France is structured in committees, based on
geographical, professional, age, and other criteria. The committees allow
everyone to participate based on their interests and affinities. A permanent
team provides logistical support. It has offices in Paris, Marseilles, Nice, Lyons,
Strasbourg and Toulouse, each with a volunteer regional President and two
professional delegates.
The purpose of the actions by the Appel Unifié Juif de France is to collect donations.
To meet their goals, throughout the year the professionals and volunteers of the
AUJF multiply meetings with donors, professional meetings, phone call days,
soirées, conferences, themed dinners, solidarity trips to Israel, etc.
Tens of thousands of donors respond to the Appel Unifié Juif de France campaigns
each year, which coincide with the important times in Jewish life: Tishri, Pesach,
emergency campaigns, the ISF campaign, etc.
and donations
The AUJF is allowed to receive bequests to benefit the programs that it supports.
Bequests and donations allow families to leave a lasting imprint while helping
the Jewish people in France and Israel.
Gifts and taxation
The AUJF issues a Cerfa form for each gift. The tax provisions allow individuals
to deduct 66% of the gift from the amount of their taxes at a rate of 20% of their
taxable income. For companies, the deduction rate is 60%, in the amount of
5/1000 of the revenue.
To guarantee and ensure traceability of the actions performed by the Appel
Unifié Juif de France, the accounts are audited by statutory auditors.

in Israel
and France
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié, which is a true pillar
in France’s Jewish community, combats poverty and
marginalization by funding social programs, fights
the loss of identity through cultural and educational
programs and strengthens the ties between France
and Israel through partnerships with entities
that attack instability in the field and promote
high-quality education.
It is founded on solidarity, the well-being of the Jewish people and transmission
of our heritage.
In Israel
Israel has become a rich and modern state, but paradoxically, the needs of
Israeli civil society continue to grow. The FSJU-AUJF works alongside five
major partners who, with complete transparency and traceability, deploy highperforming social, educational and cultural projects. Working closely with the
population, they provide concrete solutions to local issues. When danger exists
in Israel (summer 2014), specific financing is granted to local entities, which take
emergency measures.
In France
In 2014, 171 FSJU grants were dedicated to Solidarity programs, in a total amount
of 3 million euros. There were 246 programs dedicated to culture, associative
life and community, schools and youth in amount of 2.7 million euros. These
programs are proposed by the FSJU and its affiliated associations.
The Rashi Foundation
The Rashi Foundation has worked for years to reduce the social divide and the
inequality between the periphery and the center of the country, help children
in difficulty, and promote Excellence and Leadership.
75% of its activities are dedicated to education, with a dozen programs allowing
today’s younger generation to develop its potential, despite its socioeconomic
Centers for early childhood
This program is intended to support 250,000 children under the age of 6 years,
from disadvantaged environments or living in peripheral localities. The Fondation
Rashi manages centers for early childhood in the poorest Israeli towns in the
country, from north to south.
The deployment of this program is given priority in disadvantaged localities,
by creating appropriate centers intended to identify children suffering from
developmental, emotional or social difficulties in order to work upstream
and allow every child to reach his or her full potential. Qualified training staff
(educators, therapists, social workers, psychologists, etc.) give parents effective
tools and working methods to support their children. There are 11 centers for
early childhood.
Yad Rachel
Yad Rachel is one of the major Israeli organizations with a focus on childhood.
It manages 24 educational and therapeutic centers that receive a thousand
children throughout the country, as well as seven parent-child centers, i.e., 10%
of the centers existing in Israel.
In each of its 24 centers, Yad Rachel offers children from families in trouble a
broad spectrum of care, allowing them to develop their full potential and regain
a «taste for learning».
The program implemented by Yad Rachel is intended to help disadvantaged and
poor populations. A growing number of Israeli children are faced with serious
difficulties due to poverty, immigration, parental abandonment and trauma.
The main purpose of the Yad Rachel therapeutic educational centers is to
provide tools and methods that will allow them to overcome their academic and
emotional handicap.
Today, more than 1,500 children and their family members are affected
throughout the entire country.
In the therapeutic centers, children and teens receive after-school care. They
are hosted and given meals. They are also offered makeup classes, individual
therapy sessions and group activities.
The FSJU-AUJF has committed to five Israeli partners
and provides them with financial support.
These associations are in step with the local issues
and are striving to provide a concrete daily response
to the needs of civil society.
Parent-child centers
Located in Jerusalem, Bat Yam, Beit Shemesh, Beitar Illit, Gush Etzion and
Otef Aza, the Yad Rachel parent-child centers endeavor to provide support for
families going through periods of instability and who are unable to take care
of their children in difficulty. The goal is to keep the children in their family
environments. The parents receive a customized therapeutic program, provided
by multidisciplinary staff (social workers, specialized educators, psychologists).
Approximately 800 children and parents receive care. The group of Yad Rachel
structures offers a favored area to avoid the collapse and dissolution of the
family unit.
Latet is the largest Israeli food bank and the most significant humanitarian
organization. This association assists populations in distress in nearly every
town in the country. It works with an extensive network of volunteers who provide
an effective presence in the field.
Its goal is to combat poverty, which has been steadily increasing for the past
10 years in Israel.
It publishes a comprehensive and authoritative annual report on poverty in Israel.
Each year, it distributes 5,000 tons of food through 130 associations, in
partnership with town halls and social services in the towns. Its action is based
on the mobilization of 6,500 volunteers, the large majority of whom are young
The assistance benefits people whose income does not allow them to meet basic
dietary needs: single-parent families, new immigrants, those with long-term
unemployment, the elderly, disabled, etc.
Latet has been able to mobilize civil society by calling on the generosity of the
Israelis leaving supermarkets, or inviting them to donate during a Telethon
broadcast on the second largest television station the day before Rosh Hashanah
holidays. Nearly one million Israelis participate in these campaigns each year.
Furthermore, the main agri-food companies (Osem, Strauss, Tnuva, Elite) have
become exclusive Latet partners.
Ville sans Faim
Latet works as a social lever at several levels, and is able to generate positive
movement in the heart of Israeli society. «Ir le lo Raav» (city without hunger)
is a new initiative, which has the ambitious goal of eradicating hunger in one
Israeli city. The pilot project was established in Bat Yam, where 1,500 people
in serious difficulty were registered. The program engages active participation
from associations, local authorities and economic players.
Nongovernmental organization whose goal is to represent the interests of
municipalities to the Israeli government and its ministers, the Knesset and the
various public bodies, as well as international institutions. Approximately 260
town halls and localities are affiliated with the ULAI.
The partnership that binds the FSJU-AUJF to the Union of Local Authorities in
Israel (ULAI) makes it possible to support two projects. One program provides
scholarships to licence students, in three specific fields (engineering, education
and mathematics) and who live in towns on the periphery of Israel affected by
unemployment, and another that provides funding for a youth center in Shlomi
for people between the ages of 18 and 35 years.
Youth Center in Shlomi
Shlomi, which is located north of the town of Akko, is among the localities affiliated
with the ULAI, a nongovernmental organization whose goal is to represent the
interests of municipalities in Israel to the Israeli government and its ministers,
the Knesset and various public bodies. This locality is facing economic hardship
and a high unemployment rate. Due to its proximity to Lebanon, it is also one
of Hezbollah’s main targets in wartime. The combination of these factors
pushes young people to leave the locality, seeking a better future. Despite these
handicaps, the population of the city has grown, reaching 7,000 inhabitants,
including 2,400 young people. Each year, 100 children are born in Shlomi.
Thanks to the assistance from the FSJU-AUJF, a youth center has opened its
doors on the 3rd floor of an academic college. It is an area for information and
counseling providing guidance to young people before they joining the army and
offers workshops to assist with orientation and creating a professional plan.
The Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is also a key partner for this program.
IDC Herzliya scholarships
Founded in 1994 by Professor Uriel Reichman, IDC Herzliya is one of the most
prestigious Israeli universities. Today, it has 6,500 students. This scholarship
program promotes equal opportunities for Israeli and foreign students by
promoting access to channels for excellence for young people with high potential,
from underprivileged backgrounds. These scholarships allow more than 100
Israeli students and new immigrants to receive very high-level training.

The Fonds Social Juif Unifié supports the programs of charitable, social,
medical-social and educational associations that fight every day against
instability, marginalization, isolation, illness and handicap.
Today’s Jewish social action is multi-faceted. It is simultaneously attached to the
values of justice, fairness and dignity, heritage of its ancestral Jewish culture,
and is anchored in the values of the Republic.
Since the end of the Second World War, the Fonds Social Juif Unifié has played
an essential role in supporting, developing and launching innovative programs
making it possible to meet the needs of the marginalized, families, young people,
the elderly, survivors of the Shoah, the disabled, etc.
These essential responses are provided by the network of social associations
organized by the Fonds Social Juif Unifié. These associations are diverse,
structured, and for the most part made up of professionals. This action is
enriched by the engagement of thousands of volunteers who are fighting to
reduce the social divide and maintain ties.
The 10 priorities
• Coordinate the network of social associations
• Combat instability, poverty and marginalization
• Help and support children and adolescents in need
• Support families and young children
• Support and assist the elderly, isolated and dependent
• Promote care for the disabled
• Support job seekers, combat unemployment and promote qualification
• Receive, support and rehouse people without homes, asylum-seekers and refugees
• Raise awareness, hire, train applicants on social work trades
• Hire and train volunteers and unpaid staff for solidarity actions
Representation and partnerships
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié is the correspondent for the Ministry of Social
Affairs, Health and Women’s Rights. It has an annual convention with the General
Directorate for Social Cohesion.
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié is a member of the UNIOPSS (National Interfederal
Union of health and social organizations) at the national level and the URIOPSS
(Regional Interfederal Union of health and social organizations) at the regional
level. It participates in collective projects, such as Alert (efforts against poverty)
and the European Anti-Poverty Network, etc.
The FSJU and the member social associations
deploy mechanisms to respond to social emergencies
while making their actions sustainable.
In terms of identity, a dynamic policy allows
the Jewish culture to shine in the heart of the City
and community centers, and allows schools
and youth movements to develop.
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié is a member of the European Council of Jewish
Communities and the Social Welfare Committee.
As the head of the network, it nurtures close relationships with foundations such
as: Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah, Fondation Sacta - Rachi, Fondation
du Judaïsme Français, etc.
Organization of the network
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié organizes a network of more than 100 social
associations on the national and regional level. These associations work in
connection with other French and European social associations.
The social associations that are members of the FSJU network meet regularly
during social CIGs (Community Interest Groups). This forum allows discussions
between the various players (directors, professionals and volunteers) and
facilitates inter-association cooperation and expertise sharing. It is also a place
for information and discussion on the evolution of social policies, secularity,
the specific nature of the associations, etc., or any other issues related to that
activity field.
Program funding
Each year, the associations can submit programs requiring grants from the Fonds
Social Juif Unifié. These are examined on the regional level by elected officials
through the Budget Steering Committee. The recommendations from the Social
BSC are submitted to the governing bodies and voted on by the National Council.
Service contributions
The social action management may intervene with associations in the following
• Project consulting and engineering
• Creation of relationships within the network in order to pool experience and
inter-association cooperation
• Connection with public or private partners for financial support for programs
• Access to specific programs and mechanisms of the social action

Social Observatory
Created in 2014 to meet the growing needs of the community, the FSJU social
observatory is a tool for monitoring and overseeing actions taken by the
associations. It makes it possible to gather information and provide indications
on the needs to be met in the years to come. Thanks to the thematic studies that
it conducts, the observatory allows the Fonds Social Juif Unifié and association
decision-makers to pool their analyses and facilitates cooperation within
the network. Designed as a tool, it will quickly become a source of precious
information on «the real state of social difficulties in the community» and
will allow association managers to better plan their actions and provide new
responses to solidarity challenges.
Social action centers in the regions
Five Israeli Social Action Centers are supported by the FSJU. They are located in
Marseilles, Nice, Toulouse, Lyons and Strasburg.
In the form of versatile social services, these centers provide day-to-day support
for families, young people, the elderly and the disabled in order to resolve their
social, economic and other difficulties. They of course work with public social
services and in line with the orientations of the territorial collectivities.
Réseaux Ezra
Ile-de-France, Gard, Var and Sud-Ouest
The Réseau Ezra (literally, Ezra network) is an interface between people in
difficulty or isolated situations and various players in community and public
solidarity. The volunteers from the Réseau Ezra are trained as closely as possible
to the social realities. They offer each person listening, support, direction or
support in dealing with specialized services. The Networks also offer home
visits, gatherings, etc. for the most isolated members of our communities.
Solidarity Emergency Fund
By creating this Fund, the FSJU places associations at the heart of its assistance
mechanism for the poorest members of our community. This Fund makes it
possible to cope with emergency situations: late rent, energy debts, equipment
assistance, health care expenses, legal assistance, etc., and can be activated
very quickly.
This emergency fund also makes it possible to assist associations that provide
food assistance.

Social microcredit is a loan, the interest for which is covered by the FSJU, in an
amount ranging from 500 to 3,000 euros. Repayment is spread out over 12 to 36
months. It is intended for people who will be able to repay it. An agreement is
signed between the FSJU and the Crédit Coopératif.
Since these joint loans were established, they have made it possible to resolve
issues related to housing-rehousing expenses, moving, health care, training, etc. Latalmid-Samekh
Faced with families’ growing difficulties, the FSJU has established a policy of
effective and concrete assistance: the Latalmid-Samekh program.
Latalmid consists of providing lunch assistance, on average 500 euros per year
and per child. Each year, 1,000 scholarships are awarded to families.
This program affects 76 academic establishments nationwide.
The second component, Samekh, promotes partnerships between social
associations and schools. There are 60 conventions making it possible to help
establishments acquire social workers, psychologists and medical-social
professionals, etc., and provide support and monitoring for children and families.
This program is carried out in collaboration with the management for academic
action of the FSJU.
Vacation scholarships for children
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié is concerned about combating all forms of
marginalization. It therefore tries to promote access to recreation and vacation,
in particular by awarding vacation scholarships for disadvantaged children.
These scholarships, which are awarded by the management for social action and
youth, allow children from low-income families to participate in youth movement
activities. They supplement the scholarships awarded by vacation camps and
social services.
In 2014, 40 structures were affected (youth movements, vacation camps, day
camp programs, camps for children with disabilities).
Passerelles (literally, “bridges”) provides listening and orientation service
for Shoah survivors and their children. The Paris Passerelles team answers
telephone requests for information on victims’ rights, helps investigate cases,
steers people toward social services, etc. In the regions, Passerelles receives

the public and offers activities. This program is supported by the Foundation for
the Memory of the Shoah and the Claims Conference.
Vacation grants for elderly persons
This vacation grant fund for the elderly is jointly funded by the FSJU and the
Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah. It makes it possible to provide financial
assistance for elderly people over the age of 70 who are receiving minimal social
benefits or do not have a sufficient income for summer vacations—organized
by associations—, «traditional» vacations or therapeutic stays. This opportunity
thus provides temporary relief for their relatives.
Social Work Trades
Norbert Dana scholarship fund
The purpose of this fund is to assist all people who wish to be trained in social
work trades (in order to obtain a state diploma) and use their skills to serve one
of the social or early childhood assistance associations in the network.

The FSJU believes that it has a moral obligation to strengthen the Jewish
identity and support associations and partners in that mission.
There are 199 programs supported throughout France that are dedicated to
culture, associative and community life, schools and youth, for a total amount
of 2.7 million euros. Jewish heritage and richness are the backdrop. Teaching
as such is an essential vector for this identity, which is why the role of the FSJU
in assisting Jewish schools is crucial.
The Fonds Social Juif Unifié unites and coordinates all of the private academic
establishments of the Jewish teaching network in France. While strengthening
each person’s individual identity, it also develops a national network-wide
identity through joint projects and by adhering to a Quality Charter.
To that end, it is the sole correspondent for the public authorities on all subjects
related to private instruction. Within the National Ministry of Education it sits on the
contract award committee and the national steering committee for private education.
It negotiates the distribution of private instruction contracts with each academy.
It protects the rights and duties of Jewish schools. It ensures that establishments
meet their commitments related to the partnership agreement with the
State. It is a mediator in disputes arising between the establishments and the
administration for National Education.
It supports the structures’ strategic development, using the information
collected by the National Observatory for Jewish Schools of the FSJU.
The National Observatory for Jewish Schools of the FSJU conducts quantitative
and qualitative investigations each year on the evolution of Jewish schools,
workforce and population movements, training levels, buildings, test scores,
etc. Furthermore, periodic investigations are conducted on issues related
to the future of Jewish schools, school violence, the level of computer use,
accommodations for disabled students, handling of school dropouts, etc. All
of this information and these analyses allow the directors of schools or school
networks to make decisions on the future of their structures.
It participates in the deployment of school property as part of the Fondation
Gordin. School property is a significant aspect of academic life. It is necessary
to ensure the compliance of the buildings, and to make sure that they meet the
demand. The Fondation Jacob et Rachel Gordin, created in 2008, and which
groups the major French Jewish foundations together, conducts a program to
expand and modernize academic buildings in the Jewish community and bring
them up to standards. It receives almost no funding from public authorities.
France Education
It provides training for managers in formal education as part of the FSJU
Since the creation in 1993 of the Institut André et Rina Neher, which has since
been incorporated into the FSJU Campus, initial and ongoing training for
teachers and educational managers in the Jewish school is orchestrated by the
The large majority of the Teachers in the Schools, Kindergartens and Elementary
Schools under contract fall under this structure. The Kodesh teachers are also
the audience of choice for this training.
It helps improve the quality of instruction by developing innovative educational
methods and media, as part of the Jewish Center for Pedagogical Publications
For 20 years, the CJPP has produced pedagogical media for teaching in Jewish
schools in history, Jewish thought and Hebrew. The first Hebrew textbook for
high school junior and senior students was thus published in June 2014, in
partnership with the national network for pedagogical research and production
(CANOPé). It will allow students to prepare for the Baccalaureate exam under
optimal conditions.
It provides financial support for changes and projects in the Jewish school,
thanks to donations collected by the AUJF.
The financial assistance allocated by the Budget Steering Committees (BSC) of
the FSJU supports projects aiming to improve the quality of instruction, reception
conditions and educator training.
It ensures that all students can eat in school cafeterias by awarding the
Latalmid subsidies. Each year, the FSJU awards 1,000 meal subsidies to the
poorest families so that no child is suffers, during lunch at school, due to his or
her parents’ economic situation.
It combats school dropouts with the «Hand in Hand» for success mechanism.
Because the school’s mission is to ensure academic success for the largest
possible number of students, the FSJU has established a supplementary device
in addition to school to support students experiencing temporary or longer-term
Tutoring groups are run on Sunday mornings in community locations, and
methodology workshops are held to fight school dropouts.
The FSJU conducts a policy intended to allow the Jewish culture to shine
with respect to all audiences and to strengthen the Jewish identity. This
commitment is free of any communitarianism, since cooperation with a large
number of institutions and civil society is crucial. This partnership allows
better understanding of the richness of Jewish culture. As the head of the
network, the FSJU unites the associative fabric to spread a Jewish culture
that is accessible to everyone, in particular for isolated communities. That
is why it has launched traveling cultural programs, with contributions from
many community centers. By spreading culture, the FSJU is helping eradicate
ignorance, the harmful effects of which are known all too well.
The cultural programming of the FSJU responds to the need to position itself,
on the cultural scene, as a major player in Paris and in the Region, to combat
increasingly rampant anti-Semitism in France, and to strengthen and/or
awaken, through high-profile events, the Jewish identity of those who feel that
they belong to the organized community, as well as those who are completely
separated from it. For the latter, a town hall discussion, a concert in a prestigious
venue or a meeting with a writer sometimes leads to creating a bond that may
be new to them.
The events are intended for the largest possible audience, and offer their Jewish
specificity as value added. The choice of partners is also open within the City:
Collège des Bernardins, city halls of Paris, Montpellier, Aix-en-Provence,
Strasburg, Bordeaux, etc., major schools (Sciences Po, Ecole Nationale de la
Magistrature, Lycée Louis-le-Grand, ENS, etc.), major cultural sites (Théâtre de
la Ville, Maison de la Poésie, Archives nationales, etc.).
Strengthening of identity
Through its action, the cultural programming strengthens and/or awakens the
Jewish identity of those who, for various reasons, have moved away from the
events offered by «the organized community» or have never been interested
in visiting Jewish cultural associations. These «new» audiences are a priority,
because they represent a large portion of the Jews in France. There is also a
desire to offer cultural programming to cities with no Jewish life and where
members of the community feel «isolated», assimilated. In fact, sometimes one
event is enough to form a bond, instill a desire to go on, create an association
which, with the assistance of the Directorate for Cultural Action, will then
continue with its own programming.
France Culture
Regions in the spotlight
In addition to the Festival of Jewish Cultures in Paris and all of the events
organized in Ile-de-France, the FSJU conducts an active cultural policy in the
various regions of France in partnership with eminent institutions of the Republic
and the Jewish cultural centers.
Nuit des lettres in Montpellier
The «Nuit des lettres», partner of the Grande Médiathèque Emile Zola de
Montpellier, has celebrated its 10th anniversary. This event, which draws nearly
200 people each year, combines literature and Jewish culture. Since its creation
it has been supported by the Sauramps bookstore, the Montpellier City Hall and
the Regional Council.

The FSJU has established a policy of «Cultural nights» in Paris, which has been
extended to the regions (Exim Provence, Montpellier, Strasburg, Bordeaux,
Périgueux) for the last 11 years. The first of these regional Nights was dedicated
to Philosophy, in partnership with the Darius Milhaud Cultural Center, the
Aix-en-Provence City Hall and the Political Science Institute of the city.
This event is intended to allow better knowledge, in a university context, of
Jewish philosophers who have enriched the cultural heritage of their respective
countries and of humanity through their universal work.
These nights have been very successful since their creation, with a true mix in
the audience over time: Jews/non-Jews, young students/middle aged people/
the retired, etc. This philosophy Night has become a key meeting point, and is
included on the City’s official calendar.

Nuit de la Philo in Strasbourg
In partnership with the IEP and the Librairie Kleber, this event, held in November,
is part of the World Forum for Democracy. The selected themes are therefore
broken down based on the notion of «democracy» in the broadest sense of the
word. The Strasburg Night has the particularity of being dedicated to «political
philosophy». This evening consists of three major components: a keynote
speech, a roundtable mediated by a specialized journalist, and a conclusion
on the work by the philosopher who gave the keynote speech, and which is the
common thread of the evening.

Through its media, the FSJU promotes this culture and its spread. Set
against this backdrop, it bases itself on new technologies to reinforce this
Jewish heritage and open it to many audiences. News and information are
also key concerns.
N°646 - Janvier/Février/Mars 2014
France : 7,60 €
L’Arche, the magazine of French Judaism, available by subscription and on
newsstands, offers its readers 6 issues per year (4 regular quarterly issues and
2 special issues). Each issue includes an in-depth investigatory piece on current
topics of discussion, themes of concern for the Jewish community in France and

Since it was created in 1953, L’Arche, an FSJU medium, has played a unique
role in French Judaism and within the City, in the sphere of ideas, discussion
and analysis. In order to continue this mission, l’Arche has chosen to expand its
distribution to young adults and to take advantage of the opportunities offered
by the Internet and digital technologies by also offering a website, larchemag.fr.
RCJ 94.8 FM
Created in 1981, RCJ is a pluralist radio station with the goal of being the «public
service» for the large number of individuals who identify with open French
Judaism. It focuses on direct news from Israel, music, culture, Jewish thought,
people, and of course interaction with its listeners. RCJ has a website, radiorcj.
info, to share information, thoughts, reactions, discovery, etc. RCJ is much more
than a radio station.
Created by the FSJU, Judaicine.fr aims to promote Israeli films and films with
Jewish themes in France and the French-speaking world. This site, which
organizes events (previews, festivals) and produces content (Internet, radio,
press), also connects creators, works and audiences.
France Media

cultural life in the French-speaking world.
History, politics, study, philosophy, Jewish life, culture: the site leverages a
unique intellectual production.
For the first time on the Internet, Sefarim.fr offers the full text of the Bible in
Hebrew, English and French in the translation by the Rabbinate. The text is
accompanied by commentary by Rachi in Hebrew and French. Equipped with a
powerful search engine and many tools, Sefarim has become an essential tool
for the thousands of students who use it each day.
Léon Ashkenazi, also known as Manitou, was an essential figure in French
Judaism and left a significant legacy. Toumanitou.org provides more than 1,000
hours of his courses in a digital sound library.
Continuously updated by the event organizers themselves, Akademscope is the
only schedule of Jewish cultural life in the French-speaking world. Each week,
its newsletter, which is distributed to more than 100,000 recipients, provides
information for Internet users on all of the French-speaking cultural events
throughout the world, from Limoud to the theater to film, TV programs or
exhibitions, Akademoscope covers the entire spectrum of Jewish cultural life.
How can we pass Jewish identity on to young people? For the FSJU, formal
and informal education are the two major tools for transmitting this identity.
After the Second World War, the reconstruction pushed youth associations
to demonstrate ingenuity in order to preserve identity values. Many figures,
such as Edmond Fleg, Robert Gamzon, Jacob Gordin, Emanuel Levinas, André
Neher and Léon Ashkenazi worked to that end.
With time, the network of Jewish schools has developed, and a priori responded
to an identity-based need.
The Jewish youth movements and associations have had to adapt. They are a
place for learning, taking responsibility, empowerment and experience. But what
gives them their value-added and sets them apart from other associations is
their joint role with identity, in particular owing to the transmission of a common
foundation that makes it possible to convey identity values.
That foundation is made up of the duty to remember, learn Hebrew, preserve
family traditions, teach the Torah and of course know the history of Israel.
• The growing individualism of society is decreasing the ability of the youth
associations to generate enough leaders.
• The youth movements sometimes find it difficult to make the transmission of
Jewish specificities sustainable.
To respond to these difficulties and needs, the FSJU conducts a number of
projects over the entire territory, in order to reinforce the associative fabric and
offer comprehensive solutions for young people who are not as close to Jewish
Unifying Quality Charter: provides a label for signatory associations.
Appli Iphone: inventory all of the association-based activities nationally and
facilitate information.
JEM website: offer an interactive portal for the sites within the associative fabric.
France Youth
Common Interest Scholarships: provide student scholarships to discuss actions
within FSJU partner associations, in order to reinforce volunteer commitment.
Volunteer guide: inventory the skills needed by the associations.
BAFA scholarships: allow young people to benefit from high-quality training, via
Vacation scholarships: allow young people to participate in educational stays.
Pedagogical media: provide educators with a diverse offering of educational
tools and media (magazines, books).
Jewish identity seminars: improve knowledge and transmit content to adapt to
activities offered for children and teens.
Assistance for innovative projects in the regions (API’ER): help young people
between 15 and 35 years of age in the regions, supporting projects focused on
the Jewish community in the educational, social or cultural areas.
Young Graduates Forum: help young people between the ages of 20 and 35 years
find employment and housing.
Associative life
Created by the FSJU in the 1960s, the Jewish community and cultural centers
of France are established in the heart of cities and communities, small and
large. As favored vectors for a culture that affects every generation, they are
the first line of defense against the loss of identity, and the first place where
it is possible, close to home, to find or reinforce one’s Jewish identity. These
locations, which are open to all, whether practicing, traditionalist or secular,
are areas for reflection, dialogue, conversation and teaching.
Their programs offer courses in Hebrew, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish as well as
Israeli and Oriental dance, etc. The centers also offer courses on Jewish thought,
where everyone can contribute their point of view on Judaism.
They are also places to share with authors, thinkers and philosophers thanks to
the various conferences that they host throughout the year.
But the community and cultural center is also an open location for the City,
driven by festivals on Jewish culture, music and film. Major events are carried
out through partnerships with municipalities and the different cultural players
in the city.
Facilitate dialogue
The FSJU helps Jewish culture flourish by accompanying and supporting the
cultural and community centers, providing them with technical and financial
assistance and developing joint programs. It also facilitates cultural exchanges
between France and Israel. Film festivals, artistic tours and traveling shows
allow the Jewish community and all of French society to discover Israeli culture.
In Israel, it supports cultural centers and Francophone associations in organizing
activities in Haïfa, Tel Aviv, Ashdod and Jerusalem.
France Associative Life
Coordinate the association network
The FSJU drives and coordinates the associative network. It provides
programming and project creation services.
Its missions include:
• pooling services. It makes it possible to develop and hold traveling Jewish
cultural programs in the Ile-de-France and regional cities.
• assistance in organizing and programming Israeli film festivals through its
website, judaiciné.fr. The festivals take place in Marseilles, Montpellier, StRémy de Provence, Avignon, Toulouse, Perpignan, Limoges, Nice, Lyons and
• support in developing and programming for community centers. Some
examples: Paris community center, Espace Hillel de Lyon, Judaïcité de
Marseille, Espace du Judaïsme de Toulouse and Maison du Judaïsme Elie
Wiesel de Nice.
Support on the Web
Supporting the community and cultural centers in developing communication
tools is part of the new missions of the FSJU. At the initiative of the Directorate
for Developing Associative Life, the Digital Agency of the FSJU created a website
architecture provided to centers that wish to improve their image on the web.
In July 2014, 5 sites were put online, including those of the Centre d’Art et de
Culture de l’Espace Rachi-Guy de Rothschild and the Centre Jérôme Cahen in
Neuilly-sur-Seine. A dozen centers will be adopting this website configuration.
Traveling cultural programs
Initiated by the FSJU and designed with the Councils of Jewish Communities
of Ile-de-France (CCJ), these programs offer high-quality Jewish culture to
communities that are sometimes isolated.
They have the same ambition: make culture accessible to everyone. They make
it possible to bring in prestigious Israeli speakers (Yehuda Lancry, Benjamin
Gross, Noah Klieger, Denis Charbit, etc.) to small communities in Ile-de-France
and the regions that lack resources.
Furthermore, a turnkey program, called the «Cultural Caravan», offers a theme
broken down in the form of exhibition panels. It may be accompanied by teaching
media: conferences, concerts and films surrounding the theme. There are
currently four cultural caravans on the roads of France: «Jewish identity and
comics», «The major Sepharad figures», «the Aliyah of the Moroccan Jews»
and «Cinema and Jewish identity». The Cultural Caravan is configured to be in a
location for 3 to 4 days and to travel all around France throughout the year. The
creation costs and technical fees are covered by the FSJU.
Training programs intended for professionals and volunteers, with a focus on
techniques more particularly affecting cultural associations, are established in
partnership with Campus.
E.g.: funding for associations, communication, administration, etc. These
seminars are listening and sharing opportunities that give professionals and
volunteers a chance to break out of their isolation.
Since 2009, the Avignon seminary has grouped together more than 40
professionals or volunteers for cultural action. It has allowed experience sharing
and meetings that have been appreciated by players in the world of culture.
Cultural database
Created in 2011, this database is intended for professionals and volunteers in
community cultural centers, who can consult an offering of various programs,
music, theater, exhibitions, speakers, etc. on Jewish themes, carefully chosen
by the FSJU. Today, more than 400 volunteers and professionals are registered
in this database.
Edmond Tenoudji Prize
Since 1988, the Edmund Tenoudji prize is awarded to institutions and personalities
who work in the field of Jewish education. Within the Edmund Tenoudji Fund, the
Prize has recognized the work of youth associations, talmudey Torah, community
centers, rabbis, professionals and volunteers.
International relations
The FSJU is one of the founders of the European Association of Jewish
Community Centers (EAJCC), which organizes a conference every other year
in a European capital. It also participates in the World Conference of Jewish
Community Centers (WCJCC).
It represents the community and cultural associative fabric with European and
international bodies (EAJCC, ECJC, WCJCC, JOINT, JAFI).
Active participation has made it possible to develop programs with Israeli and
American community centers in particular. The community center is by nature a
place for expression of the cultures of the Jewish people.
Whether by promoting participation by celebrities, hosting groups (missions,
delegations, theater troupes, etc.) or participating in meetings and seminars,
the FSJU encourages and develops programs that make it possible for the world
to discover Jewish cultures.
T r
Campus is an initial and ongoing training center,
created by the Fonds Social Juif Unifié in 2014, to benefit
the associative life of the Jewish community in France.
For initial training, it offers degree training:
• In the Informal Education sector by agreement with the OFAC (BAFA: organizers,
BAFD: directors).
• In the Formal Education sector under agreement with State and in partnership
with the University of Paris IV, the title of Primary School Teacher and the
Master of education and teaching.
• In the Social sector, it prepares for entrance exams for schools providing
training for social workers or early childhood educators; it supports people for
knowledge validation (VAE).
For continuous training, it offers training for skill acquisition or position
adaptation for staff in social associations, structures receiving the disabled and
seniors, day cares, Jewish schools (general subject teachers and Jewish subject
teachers), talmudey Torah, youth or vacation associations and the culture sector.
Training for elected officers and volunteers within associations is also provided.
“Custom” training is also available for associations as one component of project
In all of these trainings, the FSJU Campus develops a Jewish approach to
situations and management. Beyond the acquisition of professional skills, it
is therefore necessary to account for all of the needs of the person receiving
support or training.
While respecting sectorial skills and bringing them up to a very demanding level,
the heart of the Campus lies in developing synergies between the professional
worlds of its trainees.
The Campus and its partners benefit from several agreements:
• National education and higher education.
• Youth and sports.
• Ongoing professional training, which makes it possible to cover training costs,
in particular by the OPCA (Accredited collection entities) and the DIF (Individual
Right to Training).
Some programs also receive grants from major foundations or institutions in the
Jewish community (FMS – FJF – Sacta Rachi – FSJU, etc.).
Since its creation, the Fonds Social Juif Unifié has
supported thousands of concentration camp survivors,
orphans and concealed children to provide them with
decent living conditions.
It has investigated reparations cases with the German authorities to obtain
compensation for despoilment and has managed the Swiss humanitarian
mechanism for victims of Nazi persecution.
In the early 2000’s, the recognition of France’s responsibility in the deportation of
Jews and the reparations procedures that were established showed a very strong
need for listening and dialogue, and revealed the existence of troublesome, and
even tragic human situations.
Passerelles is a listening and orientation service that responds to these
situations. It is accessible free of charge at 0800 39 45 00.
Passerelles is supported by the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah.
The Passerelles team responds to quite varied requests: information on the
rights of Shoah victims, assistance in investigating cases, direction toward social
services, individual assistance associations, places for therapeutic support
as well as user-friendly structures, etc. Passerelles maintains a connection
between those who are the most isolated and most fragile. Financial assistance
can also be granted using the funds allocated to Passerelles by the Foundation
for the Memory of the Shoah and the Claims Conference.
In the regions, the correspondents for Passerelles host and meet with the public
and offer many activities. Various workshops, conferences, film screenings,
support groups, festive occasions, etc. Passerelles re-creates a community life
for these people who, through no choice of their own, have not had any since the
war. They find themselves in a friendly atmosphere, and rediscover the language
of their childhood (Yiddish or Judeo-Spanish) in a social setting where they feel
understood and secure.
The Passerelles service exists in Lyons, Nice, Marseilles, Strasburg and Toulouse.
Created in 1994 and placed under the aegis of the Fonds
Social Juif Unifié, today the Ile-de-France Réseau
Ezra is an association of 100 volunteers supported
by 4 social work professionals. Ezra means «help» in
Hebrew. Based on the principle of benevolent listening,
its mission is to accompany people in unstable social
situations and isolation and help them though lasting
Actions of the Réseau Ezra
From the initial contact to support… During the first meeting, relationships begin
to form between the volunteers and the people in difficulty, the latter receiving
special attention and a close look at their situation.
The Réseau Ezra has several points of contact, both to receive requests for
assistance and to visit people in difficulty:
• Telephone listening and orientation service – 01 55 43 11 20: volunteers
respond to people in difficulty and point them toward different social services
that can meet their needs.
• Conversation groups: once per week, the volunteers from the Réseau Ezra
call on the most isolated to break out of their solitude, and to offer them a bit of
warmth and listen to their news. This mechanism makes it possible to provide
attentive and discrete monitoring. If there is a worrisome development in a
situation, the Réseau Ezra is able to notify family or the appropriate services.
• Brin de Jasmin: all members of the Conversation Group regularly meet at an
event (singers, workshops, games) in a festive atmosphere. In order for the most
fragile to be able to participate in these outings, volunteers will seek out and
drive those who have trouble traveling on their own. These festivities take place
every six weeks.
• Friendliness and moving assistance visits: change the world over coffee, look
