In Joplin, Missouri, emergency relief organizations have swiftly moved in to provide food and shelter, and to begin clearing the debris and to begin the reconstruction, a task that will take months and years. But the many thousands of shattered lives will take even longer. If you would like to help please, send your contribution through the Orthodox Union's Natural Disaster Crisis Fund. Your dollars will go directly to where they can be of most benefit.
Proceeds from this fund will also be used to help the people of Memphis and other communities recently flooded by the Mississippi River. Giving is the Jewish way and it is the most effective way to support people and communities in need.
