These are unusual times, and while the Jewish Federation remains open for business, it is certainly not business as usual. With staff working remotely, and more actively committed to our mission than ever, the Federation already has shifted its priorities to focus on more urgent and emerging needs while continuing to plan for our community’s strong future.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor has established a Jewish Community Emergency Fund to enable our donors and community to help meet both individual and organizational needs. The Federation is providing initial seed funding in the amount of $75,000 to launch the Fund. Even as we assess the medium to long-range impact, we know that our community’s organizations, families and individuals are already experiencing hardship and increased need related to COVID-19. Your support of this fund will enable a focused response to emerging communal needs. If you are able to contribute financially, please consider donating to the Jewish Community Emergency Fund.
