As the situation rapidly evolves, The Jewish Federation of Ottawa will be updating this page with resources and information to help our community navigate this unprecedented crisis.

  • Keep Busy Resource List

    We have gathered a list of online resources to keep you entertained and supported. From children's art lessons, and online museum tours, to virtual ballet classes, the list has something for everyone.

  • Passover Resources

    In this time of uncertainty, many in our community will not be able to gather around the Passover table with family as usual. To help you, our community rabbis are offering support and suggestions.

The City of Ottawa has created a Human Needs Task Force as part of the City’s Emergency Management Plan and emergency response to COVID-19. For key contacts and important community resources, such as: food security, help for vulnerable seniors and people experiencing homelessness; financial aid and more, read here.

  • Join us on Facebook! This group is meant to help keep our community supported and connected and to provide a forum where we can offer help to each other and where those with bandwidth can lend support to those who need a hand.

Can you offer help ? Do you need help?

Sign up at our Jewish Ottawa Helps form, and take a peek at our list of resources to keep you and your family busy and entertained.
