Calls to Action
 

Calls to Action

This past year has shown us the importance of raising our Jewish voice in the public arena. Over the course of the year, we will mobilize our community through Calls to Action: social action and social justice opportunities that will include both service and advocacy. These will be planned in response to current events and in partnership with other Jewish and non-Jewish organizations.

The Hebrew Free Loan Society in New York is joining forces with the Hebrew Free Loan Association of Houston to provide interest-free disaster recovery loans to people in Houston who are struggling and will continue to face hardships for months and years to come.

There are many other worthy charities working to support those in the disaster zone. You can read The Forward‘s short list here.
