Ah, unhappy, storm-tossed soul,
with none to comfort you:
I will make garnets your building-stones,
And sapphires your foundations.
As the full magnitude of the devastation created by Hurricane Harvey becomes clear, the Union for Reform Judaism is mobilizing to provide support to our member congregations, to our community, and to the broader community of those impacted by this powerful storm. Our prayers are with all those who are harm’s way, including the brave first responders who are already putting their lives on the line to help their neighbors.
While we know recovery will take months and not days, we recognize the need to provide immediate support, as well. We are therefore taking the following steps today:
We are exploring a variety of other steps, including facilitating Greene Family Camp’s providing programming and support in the impacted areas, and we will continue to provide updates as often as circumstances warrant.
For ongoing updates, please follow the URJ on Facebook and Twitter and consult the #HurricaneHarvey topic tag in The Tent. To communicate with the URJ about any local needs or specific response questions, please email HarveyResponse@urj.org.
