|With schools, businesses, and community gathering spaces closed, many people across Greater Boston are facing dangerous isolation, financial crisis, and lack of access to food and other basic necessities. To respond to these urgent needs, we’re launching the
CJP Coronavirus Emergency Fund for the Jewish community.
The fund will:
100% of your donation will go directly to the emergency fund. To donate by phone, call 617-457-8552.
- Address the exponentially higher need for groceries and food, including kosher goods for the elderly, people in financial distress, and those who are socially isolated
- Provide targeted financial support to Jewish homes for older adults given the extreme measures of social distancing required to keep residents safe
- Increase funding for CJP’s Interest-Free Loan Program and emergency assistance programs to help bridge debt incurred during time off work due to school closures
- Help us provide assistive technology for seniors and others facing social isolation, allowing them to participate in virtual religious services and other programming
- Support basic needs, such as food and utilities, for our Ukrainian sister city of Dnipro where many residents are going without basic necessities
- Allow us to meet evolving needs that will arise throughout this period of social distancing and isolation
CJP welcomes the participation of interfaith couples and families, and people of all abilities, backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
