NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and Stand Up has joined forces for bushfire victims.

The NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and Stand Up are pleased to acknowledge The Giving Forum for its generous response to our joint Bushfire Appeal. The Giving Forum was established four years ago at the initiative of a number of Jewish families to supplement the work of the JCA in areas which were insufficiently funded or beyond the scope of the JCA. To date, The Giving Forum members have led funding in the areas of advocacy, disability support and youth engagement, as well as for the Sydney Jewish Museum.

We are pleased to announce that, due largely to the support of The Giving Forum, whose members have committed $368,000, the bushfire appeal has reached $423,853.

This support has comprised amounts ranging from $10,000 to $50,000  from the Boyarsky, Goodridge, Graf, Green, Gutman, Ivany, Kamenev, B&D Koadlow (from Melbourne), Levy, Lowy, Magid, Maister, Moss, Roth, Shand, and Smorgon family group,  as well as the TOGA Group, all of whom are members of The Giving Forum or supporters of its work.

We encourage other families which are in a position to do so to follow their lead, and for the Jewish community generally to contribute whatever it can. This appeal demonstrates the effectiveness of Jewish communal support when the cause, even one not directly impacting the community, is important enough. This is certainly the case when it comes to supporting farmers and those in regional areas affected by the devastating bushfires.

Please contact Stand Up on 03-9500 2206 to pay via EFTPOS or electronic transfer. Donations to Stand Up are tax-deductible.
