Large parts of Louisiana and Mississippi have been plunged into darkness and Hurricane Ida destroyed many homes and businesses. 

The conditions on the ground have made it difficult to see the full scope of the damage, but early indications make it clear that Jewish communities and others will have significant needs. Hundreds are still stranded, evacuation orders in New Orleans remain in place, and towns along the Gulf Coast remain flooded.


Jewish Federations are uniquely positioned to help at times of need such as these.


A mailbox has been opened directed at this emergency, which can be accessed here.
