Help Still Needed: Carmel Fire Aftermath

Now that the fire has stopped raging in the North of Israel, damage reports have come in and we can step back and see what's still needed.  Take a look at the photos and facts in these articles, and please step up and give if you haven't already.  Reports indicate the damage is in the 2 billion shekel range, with more than 10,000 acres of forest destroyed, and Israel still needs our help.

There are two easy ways to give:

  1. Send a check to: UJA Israel Fire Disaster Relief Fund
    PO Box 8590, Aspen, CO 81612
    or to donate by credit card, please call or fax 970.704.1827
    or email
  2. The Union for Reform Judaism has an emergency fund setup.

Thank you for your consideration.
