FIRST LIGHT 5773
A "GLEE"ful Afternoon of A Cappella artists was held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at Temple Emanuel in Andover. The Merrimack Valley Jewish Federation (MVJF) brought together over 180 members of the Jewish community to celebrate Frist Light. Our featured artists were ShenaniGanns, Alef Beats and Honorable Menschen. They gave an amazing concert! Click here to see pictures and a list of our generous Corporate Sponsors.
As the security situation escalates in Israel, millions of Israeli lives have been profoundly disrupted. The people of Israel are struggling with the physical, emotional and psychological impact of living under siege on a daily basis as rocket fire streams into the south from terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) just announced a new Israel Terror Relief Fund. If you would like to make a donation to the fund click here to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Israel at this critical time.
This new Fund will help support the more than one million residents of Israel’s South and provide aid to those who are victims and the most vulnerable Israelis during this time of conflict.
Jewish Federations are leading this Israel Terror Relief Fund to help their partners, The Jewish Agency for Israel, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Israel Trauma Coalition and World ORT, deliver immediate services and assistance on the ground throughout the South. Such services include trauma counseling, financial assistance, portable bomb shelters, and potentially other initiatives including bringing children in the strike zones out of harm’s way.
Jewish Federations are working in close coordination with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) to help those in need through the Israel Terror Relief Fund. The URJ includes approximately 900 congregations. It is the largest Jewish movement in North America and represents an estimated 1.5 million Jews.
Jewish Federations are also working in close coordination with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ) on the Israel Terror Relief Fund. The USCJ is a community of nearly 630 North American kehillot – sacred communities – serving over 200,000 households in North America, and representing more than one million people.
The generosity of our donors and the strength of our agencies on the ground will enable Jewish Federations to respond quickly and effectively at this challenging time for the State of Israel. Together, we stand strong as a global Jewish community, and remain faithfully committed to our Israeli brothers and sisters during times of need.
