The Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered: 26 Billion Bucks

The American Jewish community’s network of charity

organizations is a font of Jewish power, a source of

communal pride and a huge mystery … The Forward’s

investigation has uncovered a tax-exempt Jewish communal

apparatus that operates on the scale of a Fortune 500

company and focuses the largest share of its donor dollars

on Israel … The Jewish community’s federations, schools,

health care and social service organizations, Israel aid

groups, cultural and communal organizations, and advocacy

groups report net assets of $26 billion … It’s an

apparatus that benefits massively from the U.S. federal

government and many state and local governments, in the

form of hundreds of millions of dollars in government

grants, billions in tax-deductible donations and billions

more in program fees paid for with government funds.

The ‘Forward’ Study of the Jewish Charity Industry

Kevin MacDonald – Occidental Observer

… These numbers for donations to Jewish charity are

underestimates because the IRS doesn’t require synagogues

to file tax returns, and the same goes for schools and

seminaries … The other way in which such a report fails

to get at the scope of financial support for Jewish ethnic

activism is that it does not include organizations that

are not explicitly Jewish but are supported by Jews for

ethnic reasons. … Consider the neocon infrastructure,

such as the Foundation for Defense of Democracies: All of

the identifiable donors are Jews …

Controlled Opposition: Sophisticated Jewish Power

… Jewish power is actually far more sophisticated than

simply a list of Jewish lobbies or individuals performing

highly developed manipulative skills. Jewish power is the

unique capacity to stop us from discussing or even

contemplating Jewish power. It is the capacity to

determine the boundaries of the political discourse and

criticism in particular. Contrary to popular belief, it is

not ‘right wing’ Zionists who facilitate Jewish power, It

is actually the ‘good’, the ‘enlightened’ and the

‘progressive’ who make Jewish power the most effective and

forceful power in the land.

Jewish Charity Scandals Tied to Long Tenures and Weak Oversight

. four scandals in 2013 are different in their circumstances. But according to Andrés Spokoiny, president and CEO of the Jewish Funders Network, all four come down to poor oversight on the part of their boards. ….

The four 2013 scandals and the Madoff scandal are only the most high-profile recent governance flubs in Jewish not-for-profits. There have been plenty of others since 2008, like the IRS’s revocation of the Zionist Organization of America’s tax exemption for failing to file tax returns. In 2011, a clerk at UJA-Federation of New York attempted to steal donor credit card information in an identity theft scheme.
