Several Jewish organizations have set up funds to help provide aid for the wounded in the Philippines, the families of the more than 10,000 victims, and the people left homeless in the Typhoon Haiyan’s wake.
Jewish Federations of North America is taking donations online at bit.ly/1i7EDpD or through the mail at Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund, The Jewish Federations of North America, Wall Street Station, PO Box 148, New York, NY 10268. Funds will be distributed through the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, which is focused on providing on-the-ground aid for survivors. Donations to the Orthodox Union and United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism are also being directed to the JDC.
