Helping each other: COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

by | Sep 18, 2020 | Trending News

Dedicated to caring for Jewish Tidewater’s most vulnerable community members and protecting its vital institutions, the COVID-19 Emergency Fund of the Tidewater Jewish Community has distributed more than $100,000 to assist these populations and agencies.

Congregations, Beth Sholom Village, Jewish Family Service, and schools have all received assistance through the fund. Dollars have helped JFS provide financial assistance for individuals in need, helped provide PPE for BSV and JFS, helped purchase contactless water bottle filling stations for Strelitz International Academy, and assisted congregations in their previously unforeseen streaming needs, among other COVID-related necessities.

As the pandemic persists, the needs grow with requests for relief continuing to be made. United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Tidewater Jewish Foundation, and the constituent agencies and affiliates ask for your assistance to make it possible to continue to provide that support. 100% of funds raised help the needs of Jewish Tidewater.
