How to Help Communities Impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism Disaster Relief Fund
The USCJ network  is an important source of support to communities impacted by the recent hurricanes.

Gift cards can be donated to Houston communities through SWUSY (Southwest USY). They suggest gift cards to Target, Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot, or grocery stores, in denominations of less than $50. The cards will be distributed to families affected USCJ  kehillot. Email digital gift cards to honig@uscj.org, and physical cards can be mailed to SWUSY c/o Congregation Agudas Achim, 7300 Hart Lane Austin, TX 78731.

In addition to the USCJ Disaster Relief Fund, monetary donations can be made through:

Jewish Federation of Greater Houston

Jewish Federations of North America

 Temple Beth Shalom, Puerto Rico, is taking on-line financial donations, as is the Jewish Community Center of Puerto Rico.
