Help for Hurricane Sandy Victims

We at the Boulder Jewish News are watching the coverage of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath and our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected (and there are many, many Americans that have been affected).

There are many groups organizing relief efforts.  If you are moved to donate, here are a few quick links to giving pages that we are aware of:

Allied Jewish Federation’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund100% of this money will go to relief efforts including the Jewish communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. There will be no administrative fees taken. Jewish Federations of North America, based in New York, will distribute the funds. This link is for giving through Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado.

American Red Cross Disaster Relief – click the link to donate any amount online, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation from your phone.

Chany Scheiner let us know that a relative of Rabbi Aharon Sirota, of Denver’s Western Center for Russian Jewry, was wiped out in Long Beach, NY along with the Chabad synagogue they ran.  Click here for their story, and the giving site set up to help them.


About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
