Crisis Relief


Federation is there in times of crisis when you need us most. We provide a lifeline for Jews and non-Jews in distress, at home, in Israel and across the globe. Whether it’s in response to attacks on synagogues and Jewish life, missiles raining down on Israel’s south, Hurricane Harvey in Houston or the COVID-19 global pandemic, Federation is there to help — and to rebuild.


Open Relief Funds:

Hurricane Ida Response

Our hearts go out to the people of the Gulf Coast. Federations across the country are coming together to deliver emergency relief support to those who have been severely impacted by Ida's terrible destruction.

Your help is needed. Please donate below.

Haiti Earthquake Response

We are heartbroken by the news of Haiti's devastating earthquake, which has killed hundreds of people and destroyed thousands of homes.

Jewish Federations are collectively supporting relief efforts through the Joint Distribution Committee, which is providing critically-needed medical supplies to local hospitals treating the wounded.

Through our partnership with JDC, Federations provide a Jewish response to international humanitarian emergencies wherever they happen.
