Paramus, NJ In response to the widespread destruction caused by super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey has opened a mailbox to accept donations from the community. Federation has reached out to all its partner agencies in an effort to maximize efforts.

At one of those agencies, the Jewish Home at Rockleigh, there is deep concern as 92 staff members hail from the Philippines. Some of those staffers have, so far, not been able to get in touch with their families.

In the wake of the storm’s devastation, IsrAID, the Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid, has sent an aid team to the Philippines to provide critical health interventions in the hardest-hit areas. The Israeli team will help local NGOs and UN agencies in treating hundreds of thousands of people affected by one of the worst storms on record. Locally, many Filipino-Americans have expressed concern for relatives at home.

To make a donation online, go to www.jfnnnj.org/typhoon or call Dana, 201-820-3937.

Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey adds value by providing the leadership necessary to create a strong, collaborative, caring, and vibrant Jewish community in northern New Jersey, Israel, and abroad.
