Emergency Famine Relief for Ugandan Jews

Uganda Famine Relief
Jews in Uganda are at risk due to drought and war in neighboring South Sudan. Rabbi Sizomu reports from the disaster zone through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “People look dehydrated and starving.” 

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is working with our international partner the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a part of the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR). The coalition has experience in Africa and stands ready to help. Please support  this vulnerable community in their time of need.

Free books. Free books!

Last week's Jewish Chronicle covered a Jewish Telegraphic Association (JTA) story about the powerful impact of the PJ Library program.

Our Federation has been funding this incredible program in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for many years.
