Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) have opened a donation mailbox to provide immediate and direct assistance to those whose lives, homes, and communities have been affected by Hurricane Florence. The link to the mailbox is:
It is the small communities that have been heavily impacted, with the larger Jewish communities thus far escaping widespread damage. JFNA’s relief funds will focus primarily on immediate relief needs for families and individuals affected and then their longer term recovery needs, including trauma support, case management, and financial assistance.
Jewish Federations of North American (JFNA) is in contact with all of the 6 Federations and 22 affiliated network communities throughout the Carolinas. Because of the slow pace of the storm, JFNA is still collecting information about the communities that have been affected. Many areas are still evacuated and the threat of flooding continues, so it will take some days before there is a comprehensive picture.
Please help these hurricane victims today. Thank you!
