NFTY Supports Haiti Relief: Together we can help

On January 12, 2010, a severe earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale devastated Haiti, killing more than 250,000 people and leaving millions homeless.

As in the past, NFTY joins with the Reform Jewish community in responding when natural disasters devastate communities around the world. Your generosity at this critical time enables us to play a role in recovery efforts and to bring healing and hope to those whose lives have been affected.

If every NFTYite were to donate $18 to the URJ relief effort, NFTYites alone could raise over $150,000. Please join us in making your donation to support relief efforts. By making your donation through the links below we can ensure that all dollars allocated by NFTYites can be tallied accurately:
