Hurricane Irma Resources


Hurricane Irma has caused widespread damage. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by this terrible storm.

In times like these, we can depend on Miami’s strong, united Jewish community to care for each other and to do our part to care for all in need.

As the utility companies work to restore electrical power and communications services, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is partnering with the Jewish and general communities to assess the needs of our local residents and institutions, and to mobilize volunteers and other resources where they are needed most.

Federation has established an emergency relief fund to support urgent needs in the Jewish and general communities in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

One hundred percent of all contributions to the Hurricane Irma Relief Fund will be directed to this effort.

Donation checks with a notation of “Hurricane Irma Relief Fund” should be mailed to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33137. For assistance, you may also call 305.576.4000.
