Due to the horrible events happening in Gaza, the Federation is helping the people of Gaza the best way we can. We have decided to hold an emergency humanitarian relief  fundraiser for the AFRP Medical Mission in order to raise money for the hospitals in Gaza.  Every dollar helps in the medical aid of thousands of innocent civilians in Palestine.

We are also planning a nationwide candlelight vigil for all the Palestinians who have died.  Details of how to donate and attend the Vigil will be sent out as soon as possible.

God Bless you and your families and our brothers and sisters back home.
