250 Holocaust survivors need your help now!

YOUR $100 = $200

 
This community has rallied in a big way to support local Holocaust survivors in need! We met our original matching goal of $75,000, which has enabled us to save services for nearly 125 individuals. We are close to the $200,000 goal, but we’re not quite there yet.

That means some survivors’ services will be cut. Will it be Sid, who depends on home aid for bathing? Will it be Ruth who needs help preparing her meals?

Fortunately, another generous donor stepped in with an additional $25,000 in matching funds, so the campaign, with its dollar-for-dollar match, is remaining open so you can still double your impact. This enables more supporters like you to take advantage of this matching opportunity, but most of all, the goal is to save the services -- and the dignity -- of Holocaust survivors.

When the Jewish community learned of funding shortfalls for Holocaust survivors, we vowed not to stand idle. We cannot turn our backs on Holocaust survivors. We urge you to give now and to share message with everyone you know so every Jew in Monmouth and Middlesex counties supports this emergency campaign

Thank you!

Has the Claims Conference cut funding to survivors?
