Turkish Earthquake Relief Fund to support those most affected by the earthquakes in southern Turkey and northern Syria.
Across the globe, people are feeling a sense of grief and helplessness over the terrible earthquakes that have rocked southern Turkey and northern Syria. More than 20,000 people have been killed and entire towns and cities have been destroyed. This is especially felt by our community, which started in 1902 when the first Sephardic Jews came to Seattle from Turkey, later bringing other community members with them from the Ottoman Empire. As members of Seattle’s Sephardic community – the Seattle Sephardic Network, Sephardic Bikur Holim Congregation, Congregation Ezra Bessaroth and the Seattle Sephardic Brotherhood - we stand in solidarity with those living in Turkey and Syria. Today, a city near the epicenter of the earthquake, Antakya, is still home to a very small Jewish community, whose president and wife are currently missing in the rubble after their home collapsed.
In coordination with our partners at The Sephardic Jewish Brotherhood in New York and the Jewish Community of Turkey, we encourage donations to the Sephardic Brotherhood's Turkish Earthquake Relief Fund to directly assist the Jewish Community of Antakya and general recovery efforts via the Chief Rabbinate of Turkey and the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), both reputable partners in the recovery efforts. One of Seattle's own community members, Sam Amiel, is currently coordinating JDC efforts in Southern Turkey.
If you are so inclined, please consider giving generously to the Turkish Earthquake Relief Fund to help the people of Turkey who are struggling to survive in the aftermath of the earthquake. All funds raised through this effort are tax-deductible and will go directly to help the ongoing relief efforts.
Min HaShamayim Tenuhamu - We Pray that God will comfort the families of those who have been lost and the people of Turkey at this difficult time.
