Jewish Federation Partner JDC is aiding
Hurricane Matthew Victims
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is responding to Hurricane Matthew’s widespread destruction in Haiti focusing on medical aid and other basic needs provision for beleaguered storm victims. JDC – which deployed extensive relief and rebuilding efforts aiding hundreds of thousands in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010 – is providing medical supplies and medical team assistance through its partner on the ground, Heart to Heart International.
JDC’s relief work in Haiti will focus on the hardest-hit areas in the south of the island where reports of torrential rains, flooding, and strong winds were accompanied by damage to homes, farming stock and land, and infrastructure like bridges.

Jewish Federations and our partner agencies will be there to support and assist the Jews in France and Europe, whether they choose to stay in their respective nations and combat anti-Semitism, or they make aliyah, or they resettle in North America, as so many Europeans did in past centuries.

Together We Did Extraordinary Things!
When the cry for help rang out from Israeli citizens suffering amidst rocket attacks from Gaza, our community responded. We came together with common purpose to provide services through Federation partner organizations in Israel. Your generosity and commitment helped enable the extraordinary work of the Joint Distribution Committee, Jewish Agency for Israel and World ORT to heal those who were hurting, repair what was damaged and provide support for First Responders. Thank you ~ Todah Rabbah.
