Friends and Family,
As a native Houstonian, it pains me to see my loving home town endure such tragedy. More specifically, the Jewish neighborhoods were hit particularly hard by Hurricane Harvey. Many of my friends and their family's had to be rescued by boat and their entire houses were destroyed. Sadly, synagogues were damaged due to tremendous water damage within the building and sanctuaries.
In response, my parents and I have been volunteering at the JCC which has truly motivated me to both physically help pitch in and start a fundraiser. I'm currently running a campaign for Jewish Family Services of Houston. The mission of Jewish Family Services is to strengthen Jewish individual and family life through counseling, education and social services. Currently, JFS-Houston is providing a tremendous amount of resources to those Jews in need of relief from the destructive force that was Hurricane Harvey.
Please help me in supporting those Jewish Houstonians whom have lost everything and need of help.
