It's at times like this that our shared commitment to tikkun olam, repairing the world, finds its deepest expression. Help is urgently needed. More than 4,000 are so far known to have died in Nepal, with the toll rapidly rising. Tens of thousands are injured and displaced amid untold destruction, flooding and terrifying aftershocks. Supplies of water, food, electricity and food are running low.

Israel immediately sent personnel and supplies for relief and rescue, and our Federation’s overseas partners are on the ground with humanitarian aid. We call on South Palm Beach County to join Jewish communities around the country in responding with our characteristic deep compassion and generosity – as we have done before, together, in so many major disasters.
