Jewish Federation of St. Louis’
Disaster Relief Fund
Our hearts go out to the communities in Texas, Florida and other areas that have been hammered by the recent hurricanes, including Jewish communities still recovering from flooding two years ago. With record breaking rain having fallen and expected to continue, extensive damage continues to mount.
The Jewish Federations of North America has opened a Hurricane Relief Fund to support the communities and the victims of these natural disasters.
We know that several Jewish communal institutions that flooded on Memorial Day weekend two years ago have flooded again, but communities in the affected areas won’t be able to start assessing the scope of damage to institutions and members of their communities until the rain stops and roads become passable. Nevertheless, the people of Texas and Florida need your help now for immediate relief.
Our network of local and international partners enables us to respond quickly and effectively. We fund urgently-needed basics like food and medicine, and long-term needs like trauma counseling. To learn more about the needs specifically in Texas, please click here.
All funds collected will go directly and towards disaster relief through the Jewish Federations of North America, who will distribute money in cooperation with Jewish Federations and relief agencies in affected areas.
