Mission Statement

Jewish World Watch (JWW) is a hands-on leader in the fight against genocide and mass atrocities, engaging individuals and communities to take local actions that produce powerful global results. Founded in 2004 by Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis and Janice Kamenir-Reznik as the Jewish response to the genocide in Darfur, it has grown from a collection of Southern California synagogues into a global coalition that includes schools, churches, individuals, communities and partner organizations that share a vision of a world without genocide. JWW bears witness to first-hand accounts in conflict regions, partners with on-the-ground organizations to develop high-impact projects that improve the lives of survivors and help build the foundation for a safer world, and inspires our communities to support tangible projects and advocate for political change. JWW has raised more than thirteen million dollars for relief and development projects that impact tens of thousands of people in Sudan and Congo. It is the mission of Jewish World Watch to:

1. Educate target constituencies by developing appropriate materials and programs; 2. Advocate for policies to stop or prevent genocide and other atrocities through community organization and mobilization; and 3. Alleviate the suffering of survivors and victims of genocide through resource development and funds allocation.
