Statement on Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

With the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in recent days, the affected communities, students, and our colleagues at local Hillels in the southern states are constantly on our mind. We wish them strength during this difficult and challenging time. Hillel Ontario is looking to explore ways in which we can support the rebuilding efforts. As Jews, and as members of the larger global community, the value of Tikun Olam – repairing the world – is core to who we are. Stay tuned for opportunities to volunteer on the ground and if you wish to donate to assist the affected areas, please do so through UJA Federation’s Hurricane Irma Relief Fund.
