Communities are just now beginning to return to assess the damage. The Jewish Federation of San Diego Country, along with Jewish Federations across North America are raising funds to support communities in need. Funds raised will support victims of Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, and any other storms this season. 100% of your donation will go to the Hurricane Relief Fund . Thank you for your continued generosity.
