The Argentinean Jewish Relief Committee of Greater Boston (AJRC) was organized in January 2002, as an all-volunteer, grassroots response to the worsening circumstances facing Argentine Jews. Since then we have raisedover $1,000,000 and delivered relief directly to soup kitchens, food pantries, community pharmacies, schools, and homes for at-risk youth. The organization has no overhead, with expenses such as travel, borne by its members. 

Our mission is serving the needy in Argentina, sustaining Jewish communal life, and helping Argentinean charities develop effective and sustainable ways of responding to the challenges they face. As the depth of the initial Argentinean crisis subsided, AJRC focused its attention on the older Jewish population and Jewish education, areas that still suffer from the effects of the 2001 economic debacle. 

We are currently NOT receiving requests for funding since the general economic conditions in Argentina improved. 

Donors we currently seek are asked to indicate which institutions or services they wish their contributions to go towards.

However, the economic conditions in Argentina are again pointing towards another significant period of challenges in the not so distant future. Our organization is ready to become more active when thattime comes.
