As a community, our collective hearts and minds watched as Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas and threatened many East Coast communities.
The OU was front and center monitoring the storm and communicating with community leadership to offer any necessary assistance. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Atlanta community who graciously opened their homes to any evacuees needing a place to go.
Our prayers go out to all of the victims of the storm and we offer gratitude to Hashem on behalf of all those who were spared from harm.
For those who wish to donate directly to the relief effort in the storm-affected areas, the Joint Distribution Committee is running a campaign to assist, as well as Chabad Bahamas.
