The Dnepropetrovsk Kehillah Project (DKP) was launched by JCRC in 1992 as part of a national effort, organized by the National Conference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) to link American Jewish communities with Jewish communities in the Former Soviet Union. The JCRC DKP is supported by a special allocation from the Overseas Committee of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP).
This partnership, forged over the past 19 years, engages 7 Boston Jewish agencies and dozens of volunteers. It has been a partnership of mutual learning and cooperation. Volunteers and agencies have developed programs to care for children with special needs, house and care for the elderly, improve women's and children's medicine, engage young Jews from Boston, Haifa and Dnepropetrovsk in Jewish learning, and more – all through lay-driven technical assistance and the willingness to travel and learn from each other.
