“Thank you to the Jewish community and the Federation for providing emergency COVID-19 grants, both for financial assistance to our members and direct assistance to our synagogues for PPE and enhanced sanitization. These funds will help ensure that our most vulnerable can meet their basic needs and that synagogues can safely reopen and once again serve the spiritual, educational, and social needs of the community.”
– Rabbi Adler, Chair of the Board of Rabbis

“I know that a lot of people have questioned the need for an umbrella organization to oversee fundraising in our community when people can give directly to agencies and synagogues of their choice, but it is in emergency situations like this where the value of a Federation gets to really show itself.” – Lisa Tobias, Grant Committee Co-Chair
