Hurricane Irma has caused widespread damage across Miami-Dade County and other parts of Florida and the Caribbean. 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.
To make a donation now, please
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.
OTHER SOURCES FOR ASSISTANCE:
Volunteers wishing to help others should call the Jewish Volunteer Center of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation at 877.879.5652 and follow the prompts. Please leave your name and contact information and someone will return your call. You may also email IrmaVolunteers@gmjf.org.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, please call the Jewish community’s 24-hour helpline, 305.576.6550, operated by Federation’s local partner agency, Jewish Community Services of South Florida. If you are unable to reach someone at that number, call Federation’s emergency hotline at 877.879.5652 and follow the prompts to leave a message. Someone will return your call as soon as possible.
