kehilla leaders, our board members Sandy Herskowitz, Richard Kammerman and Dana Winer, USYers and program alumni, and others throughout Texas. Fortunately our community is safe.

In the future we will turn our attention to the needs of the Jewish community in their rebuilding and will ask people to give to USCJ's Disaster Relief Fund so we may support that effort.
