#HurricaneIrma, one of the largest storms on record, caused widespread damage and flooding, and left more than 10 million people without power. Residents and communities are just now beginning to return to assess the damage. Long-term power outages in Florida’s hot and humid climate are raising serious health concerns, especially for many seniors. Our national umbrella organization, Jewish Federation of North America has checked with every affected community, and preliminary reports show moderate to little institutional damage. The major facilities that support Jewish communal life are intact. However, we are still working to get a handle on the number of individual homes affected by flooding. Donate now to help with the relief effort.
The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati is at the heart of the Cincinnati Jewish community. We connect our partner agencies with the people, resources and ideas they need to thrive, connecting individuals to each other and to the larger community in Cincinnati, Israel and around the world. We stand in the center of activity, encouraging collaboration and cooperation. Our vision is to build an inclusive community that helps people in need, engages community members, supports Israel, and seeks to ensure a vibrant Jewish future.
