Be Part of the Jewish Community's Response to Help Victims of Hurricanes Eta and Iota in Central America
Posted by Liat Stilman on 11/10/2020 @ 03:57 PM
The Greater Miami Jewish Federation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to assist people affected by Hurricanes Eta and Iota in Central America. As always, Federation will absorb all administrative costs so that 100 percent of funds collected will be used to provide critically needed aid to people in Central America impacted by the disaster.
Our community has decades of experience with hurricanes. We understand the devastation and suffering that follow a catastrophic storm like Hurricanes Eta and Iota. Even in the midst of our own crisis, let us join together to help people affected — wherever they may live — to rebuild their lives.

Sharsheret: The Jewish Breast & Ovarian Cancer Community supports Jewish women and families facing breast and ovarian cancer. All of the organization’s services are available online and over the phone, including peer support, connection to social workers and web-based resources. During a time when immunocompromised women are losing their support networks because of social distancing, these critical resources are incredibly important.
