JFNA Hurricane Relief 2017


Right now, JFNA is on the ground in Houston, Florida and the Caribbean funding urgently-needed basics such as food, medicine, supplies, and trauma counseling. Our network of local and international partners serves Jewish community members and all in need quickly, effectively, and with personal care. Once the full scope of the damage is known, we will fund important recovery work, including helping rebuild damaged homes and restore Jewish institutions.

One hundred percent of funds raised will be used to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Please help us help them. If we receive more funds than needed, additional donations will go to aid victims of future disasters.
