Support World Jewish Relief’s Indonesian earthquake appeal

15 October 2018

Liberal Judaism has joined with Jewish movements and organisations from across the denominations to call for aid to Indonesia.

World Jewish Relief is providing emergency help in the region after a powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake, and resulting tsunami, hit the island of Sulawesi.

The death toll is over 1,900 with numbers still rising. Aftershocks have continued to wreak devastation on the area with buildings collapsed and homes washed away.

There are currently 70,000 displaced people, who urgently need shelter and supplies. Your support could help World Jewish Relief provide this emergency relief.

Liberal Judaism’s senior rabbi, Rabbi Danny Rich, said: “World Jewish Relief is once again at the forefront of putting our Jewish values into practice. The tsunami in Indonesia is devastating for its victims and it is a Jewish moral imperative to respond.”

The appeal is also supported by Orthodox Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Rabbis Laura Janner-Klausner and Jonathan Wittenberg, the senior rabbis of Reform and Masorti Judaism.
