Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund

A situation report on the impact of the storm and efforts to bring relief to its victims 

The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, in cooperation with The Jewish Federations of North America has opened the  Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund to contribute to recovery and rebuilding in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.  Donors are urged to contribute through our secure online donation form. Donors may also send checks to The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, Hurricane Sandy Relif Fund, 1301 Springdale Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003. Please indicate "Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund" on all checks.

Hurricane Sandy, a storm of unprecedented magnitude, struck the Eastern portion of the United States. Seeing the response of communities across the region to the devastating storm, we are awed by the strength of the American people.  We have reached out to our neighbors in Atlantic County to offer our assistance and are waiting for their response. The Jewish community and the Federation Movement send our support and prayers to those affected by the hurricane, and we will stand beside them during the recovery and rebuilding.  


Before the storm hit, JFNA Emergency Committee staff communicated with potentially impacted Federations and communities.  They also coordinated with our Jewish Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (JVOAD) partners.  They continue to communicate  with affected Federations to assess damage and communal needs, as well as participating in National VOAD meetings, which are held in conjunction with FEMA and emergency response personnel from across the region.
 
Thank you for joining us in sending prayers, resources, and good wishes to all those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

We will continue to update this Hurricane Sandy Relief page and provide reports as necessary.
