URJ Collects Donations for Deadly Southeast Tornadoes

May 1, 2011, New York -- A series of deadly tornadoes swept across the Southeast last week, killing hundreds and leaving thousands homeless.

The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) is accepting donations for tornado relief efforts and will work closely with our congregations in the affected region to assure that funds are used where they are needed most.

To make a donation online visit www.urj.org/relief. Checks can be sent to the Union for Reform Judaism (Attn: Tornado Relief), 633 Third Ave., New York, NY 10017.

Other than direct expenses (such as credit card fees), the URJ takes no administrative overhead from relief funds.

We are not currently aware of needs for volunteers, however the Jewish Federation of Birmingham recommends that those interested in volunteering register with Hands on Birmingham.
