Or, you can donate via the URJ website:

The Union of Reform Judaism (URJ) has set up a fund to help West End Temple and its congregants, as both were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Everyone in the community had significant damage to houses, possessions, and cars.

Many of West End Temple’s congregants are in need: Figuring out where to send their kids to school, where to get to a hot meal, etc. The synagogue, which is central to the well being of the community, was under four feet of water, and basically destroyed – office, library, sanctuary, computers, walls, floors, carpets, sound system, windows, and much more.

Please give what you can by clicking on this link to the URJ’s secure website.

Then, go to the link specifically mentioning WEST END TEMPLE.

These people will rebuild their lives, but they need your help.
