Midwest Flooding

Three days of heavy rainfall are leading to predictions of higher crests for some cities along the Mississippi River and may trigger a second round of flooding for already swamped communities. More than 3.4 million acres of land have been flooded, causing billions of dollarrs to damage in crops, and 21,000 homeowners have already filed claims with FEMA. A massive public and private recovery effort will be required. The Union for Reform Judaism stands ready to help the residents of these communities, and is closely monitoring reports from synagogues in these river towns. Your donations to the Union for Reform Judaism Disaster Relief Fund will help these residents put their lives back together.
