Yes, You Can Help

Posted on July 28th, 2014 by Audrey Korotkin

So many of us whose heart is in the East, but whose bodies are in the West, are desperate to help Israelis in their time of need. Thanks to the Reform Movement and the Jewish Federations of North America, you can. The URJ is supporting the JFNA “Stop the Sirens” campaign, which provides direct on-the-ground support to families who are being threatened by Gaza rockets. Please check out the information on URJ.org and follow the link to make a donation, or go to the web site of the Greater Altoona Jewish Federation. And pray for the peace of Israel.
