AJ HURRICANE FLORENCE RELIEF FUND

Our hearts go out to the thousands of people impacted by Hurricane Florence. AJ has set up a Hurricane Florence Relief Fund to provide aid to victims. Donations can be sent to AJ (2401 Woodbourne Avenue, Louisville, KY 40205-1799) or online by clicking here. Checks should note the Hurricane Relief. The funds will be sent to Nechama - Jewish Response to Disaster.

WHAT IF YOU WERE A REFUGEE TODAY?

Most of us have grandparents or great-grandparents who were refugees prior to reaching safety in the United States. On Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Slosberg spoke about the current refugee crisis, and on what Judaism compels each of us to do to help. You shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, having yourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) was founded in 1881 to assist Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe. They later expanded their mission to providing assistance to non-Jewish refugees worldwide, especially those in immediate danger. Visit their website at: http://www.HIAS.org to find a way that you can make a difference, just as others did for those family members who came before us.
