Community Update - Coronavirus

Dear Friends,

It's a challenging time in our country and in our community, but our Jewish community is not losing hope -- or our steely resolve. We just don’t have that luxury.

Our tradition teaches us that to “save a life is to save a whole world.” It is this notion, along with our credo that “all the children of Israel are responsible for one another,” that has inspired our community to once again band together to help each other get through these tough times.

I truly believe these are some of the reasons why nearly 500 people have answered our call to support the Jewish Hartford Rapid Relief and Recovery Fund (RRR Fund), established in partnership with our Jewish Federation. With initial funding of $150,000 from us and Federation, the RRR Fund has grown to more than $900,000. 

Thanks to your generous gifts, the RRR Fund is offering emergency financial assistance and food to individuals and families in need, and support to our agencies. 
Please encourage anyone who needs assistance to visit

You may also wish to donate to the RRR Fund by clicking here. Or, you can choose to make a contribution through your donor advised fund held at the Foundation or at any other commercial or charitable institution. Either way, 100% of your contribution will be used to help those affected by COVID-19 in Greater Hartford's Jewish community. For more information, email Michael Elfenbaum: 

Thanks for your support, strength and generosity.
