250 Holocaust survivors need your help now!

YOUR $100 = $200

 
The Jewish Federation provides funding for in-home aides, Meals on Wheels, and other health & social services for local Holocaust survivors, as well as providing grants for partner organizations to continue the vital work.

Holocaust survivors are constantly facing shortfalls when it comes to funding. Did you know that a quarter of survivors are over 85 years old, and 25% of all Holocaust survivors now live in poverty? Whether they need, as Jews, we cannot turn our backs and stand idle. They have lived through hell and they deserve to age with dignity.

In May when the Jewish community learned of funding shortfalls for local Holocaust survivors, we immediately launched an emergency fundraising campaign with our partners Jewish Family Services (Middlesex) and Jewish Family & Children's Services (Monmouth). The online campaign grew quickly and the chain reaction was unprecedented. With your generous donations and readiness to act, plus those who provided matches, we raised over $170,000 in just two weeks, enabling us to save services for nearly 125 individuals in the Monmouth and Greater Middlesex counties.

Thanks to another generous donor, the dollar-for-dollar match still in full effect so you can double your impact for local Holocaust survivors who need immediate attention. But most of all, we will allot these funds to save the services - and dignity - of local these survivors.
