The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) has opened a fund to support relief efforts in the Philippines by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). JDC is consulting with local officials, the Filipino Jewish community and global partners to assess the evolving situation on the ground.
"These efforts are especially poignant for us given the Philippines' life-saving actions during the Second World War when the country offered safe haven to more than 1,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi onslaught. It is our privilege today to honor that historic debt." - JDC CEO Alan H. Gill
