Federation alert

Shalom chaverim (dear friends),
As we are living through this challenging time, with COVID-19 disrupting our way of life, we here at the Jewish Federation and Jewish Family Service want to let you all know that we care. It has never been more important to remember that we are part of a community and that kol Yisrael aravim zeh ba zeh (all Jews are responsible for each other).
Community events and weekly services are being cancelled, causing isolation. Financial and job security may be a stressor for some. Health concerns are dictating our daily activities. Although our office in the Jewish Community Center is closed to the community, we encourage you to call or e-mail us if you are in need or know of someone who is. Your well-being and safety is our top priority. God willing, we will be together again soon.
Our mission is to support and sustain the Binghamton Jewish community. We thank all the caring donors who support the work we do. Please be smart, stay safe and follow the government’s guidelines that are set out for us all.
L’shalom,
Shelley Hubal, Jewish Federation 
Executive Director
Suzanne Holwitt, Jewish Federation President
Rose Shea, Jewish Family Service Director
