Guatemala Relief Effort

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee is responding to the devastating and ongoing eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano, immediately supporting the aid efforts of the Guatemalan Jewish community as they distribute critically needed relief items to those in the hardest-hit areas and plan for the rebuilding of schools and clinics. JDC is in continuous touch with the Jewish community to monitor changing needs on the ground in preparation for recovery and rebuilding projects, including deploying its experts to develop recovery programs.

Support JDC's response in Guatemala,

“We join with those around the world mourning the loss of life in Guatemala and are privileged to join with the Guatemalan Jewish community as it quickly moves to provide life-saving aid and rebuild their country even stronger than before. Our work today underscores not just the value of tikkun olam – repairing a broken world – but the sanctity of all human life and the role of the Jewish people as global citizens responding to tragedies that impact our neighbors and loved ones,” said JDC CEO David Schizer.

GJF Reaffirms Statement by JFNA - White House Announcement on Jerusalem
Published December 6, 2017

The Greensboro Jewish Federation reaffirms this statement made by our national Jewish Federations of North America organization with regard to President Trump’s announcement today:

Today, President Trump announced that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  Following his announcement, The Jewish Federations of North America said the following:  

“Today, the U.S. administration announced a plan to move the Embassy of the United States in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, honoring a bipartisan commitment made over 20 years ago in the Jerusalem Embassy Act. The U.S. administration also proclaimed its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Jewish Federations of North America welcomes this decision, as it upholds our long-standing policy. We also welcome the affirmation of a two-state future negotiated between the parties in which Israelis and Palestinians live side by side with secure and recognized borders.”
