Sign up now for Super Sunday

On Sunday,  February 21, 2016, volunteers from all over Jewish New Orleans will come together between 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at the Goldring-Woldenberg Jewish Community Campus in Metairie to make the world a better place. Can you lend a hand for at least 2 hours to help your community?

 

Super Sunday, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans’ annual phonathon, benefits the 2016 Annual Campaign.  At this energetic event, we will reach out to more than 1,000 members of our Jewish community to raise the dollars necessary to support our community’s agencies and organizations. 

 

Together, let’s help Federation write our community’s next chapter—to learn more about Super Sunday or to sign up to volunteer, please visit www.jewishnola.com/super-sunday.*

 

Questions? Contact Cait Gladow at 504-780-5614 or at cait@jewishnola.com.

 

(If you will not be available on Super Sunday, and would like to make your pledge in advance, please click here to do so.)

*Babysitting will be provided.

How We Can Help Syrian Refugees

JCDR is a consortium of nearly 50 Jewish organizations that maximizes the use of pooled financial resources, coordinates the activities of its member agencies, educates members’ constituencies and the general public about current disaster situations and subsequent Jewish responses, and demonstrates the long tradition of Jewish humanitarianism. JFNA is a standing member of JCDR, which provides the Federation community with an opportunity to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis in Europe. This reflects our ongoing emergency response efforts and extensive network of global partnerships that provide assistance during different types of crises in Israel, in Jewish communities around the world such as in Ukraine and France, and in humanitarian emergencies such as this.

 

Federations also support HIAS through the National Federation/Agency Alliance, a coalition of 29 Federations and nine national agencies. On behalf of Syrian refugees, HIAS is advocating for the U.S. to commit to resettling 100,000 of the most vulnerable displaced people, and to increase the amount of humanitarian aid our country provides to the region. To make a contribution to the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief, click here or mail a check payable to the “Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugees” to: JDC, P.O. Box 4124, New York, NY 10163.

  • A Journey to Justice in Ukraine

    An alum of Federation partner JDC’s Metsuda program for training young Jewish leaders in Eastern Europe, Nikita Didenko knows how to act under pressure. When violence erupted in his small hometown in Ukraine, he made the agonizing choice to leave behind everything he knew—including his fiancée—and move to Kiev. Once there, he was taken in by Federation-supported Moishe House where he discovered his calling—big-city police work.
