A Message Regarding the LA Wildfires from Jay Sanderson, President & CEO, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles

November 13, 2018 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

The Los Angeles wildfires have been burning for days, and the Los Angeles Jewish community is in dire need of help. Thousands of individuals and families have been evacuated and displaced, and a number of Jewish institutions have been destroyed or damaged. Three Jewish summer camps have burned to the ground and need to be rebuilt for summer 2019. The Ilan Ramon Jewish Day School was also destroyed.

This crises has affected the community beyond what anyone can see outside of Los Angeles. The fires are still burning, and will be bringing havoc for days to come. The firefighters and first responders are doing all they can, but we need to mobilize our extended network to help in this time of need.

The Los Angeles Jewish community needs our collective support now to rebuild and ensure the strength and security of all members of the community.

In response, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit has set up an emergency relief fund on our website with 100% of all funds raised going to individuals and institutions affected by the fires. You can donate here.
