Shabbat Message for November 15
November 15, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
Hadassa Vered Raviv is the name of our precious new granddaughter. She comes from a long line of strong Zionistic women whose lead I’m sure she will follow. We are grateful and blessed by her arrival. While we were welcoming our newest addition, the people of the Philippines were bracing for an unwelcome deadly Typhoon. An estimated 10,000 people will have lost their lives while 100s of thousands are displaced with no water or food. Israel had one of the first teams on the ground to provide medical help and needed support. The Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is raising funds for relief efforts. JDC is consulting with local officials, the Filipino Jewish community and global partners to assess the evolving situation in the Philippines. You can assist in these efforts by making a donation through a website that JFNA has set up here. The JDC is one of our overseas partners that we support through your contributions to the Jewish Federation. However, emergency disaster relief efforts fall outside of the scope of Federation funds sent to the JDC.
Tikkun Olam is our Jewish mission in life. We are literally here on Earth to help make it a better place for all. Whether our efforts are global or local, we should take pride in the model we set for our future generations, like little Hadassa.
Wishing you a Sweet and Healthy Shabbat Shalom,
Federation’s Jewish Education Programs to Transition to JCC
