Following the terrible earthquake in Chile on Shabbat, we today opened a Relief Fund to support those who have fallen victim to this disaster.
As you may know, there are 6 Masorti kehillot in Chile, and we have managed to get in touch with some of their rabbis – they have told us that things are bad, and that they will need help to rebuild homes and even their synagogues. They are occupied right now with supporting their kehillot and each other, and waiting for the aftershocks to pass. The rebuilding work will come later.
In the meantime, please have a look at http://tiny.cc/chilerelief for more information and to see the campaign notice we sent out. Please forward this on to any of your friends or supporters, or make a secure donation online at http://tiny.cc/masortiolami.
