Lead in Times of Crisis


Lead in Times of Crisis

While we may not know when the next crisis will come, the Jewish Federation is ready to nimbly and effectively respond.
The Federation is committed to leading our community through any challenge whether pandemic, natural disaster or humanitarian crisis. We provide a lifeline for Jews in distress and address urgent needs at home, in Israel and around the globe.

Within 48 hours of the beginning of the Ukrainian Crisis, we established the Ukraine Emergency Relief Fund and in less than three weeks, we raised and allocated over $91,000 to support the humanitarian effort.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Federation mobilized our community and responded quickly to make sure our schools, synagogues and agencies had the necessary supplies to open safely.

When Israel came under terrorist attack, the Jewish Federation immediately sprung into action to support our brothers and sisters overseas who had to hide in bomb shelters and had minimal access to food.
