Community response to the bushfire disaster
The NSW Jewish Board of Deputies together with Stand Up: Jewish Commitment to a Better World, have so far raised $590,000 for bushfire relief. The funds will be disbursed shortly.
Given the increased and ongoing severity of the fires, the Board of Deputies has established a new campaign with Stand Up for further donations for dispersal to those affected in NSW and elsewhere. The new campaign can be found here: https://www.givenow.com.au/standup-bushfire-appeal
We encourage those who are able to give to do so. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Furthermore, a national Jewish response to the disaster is being coordinated by the ECAJ. Click here for their statement on the bushfire response.
