The Greater Miami Jewish Federation has established a fund to assist the survivors and family members of the tragic Surfside building collapse. As always, the Federation will take no administrative costs from the fund, so 100% will go to meet these tragic needs. Members of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater (and extended community) may access the fund here to contribute to the effort and recovery. This is yet another example of the indispensable role that our Federations play in supporting and protecting our Jewish communities in North America, and beyond.
