Coronavirus Updates

First and foremost, we hope you and your families are well and safe. Many are not. Our Jewish Family Services staff and Federation are on the front lines providing services to our community in this time of need. We are already answering the call and meeting the needs of our Jewish community and Greater Greensboro community.

We have launched a Jewish community emergency response effort to address the immediate needs of individuals and organizations as they struggle during the COVID-19 crisis.
We urge you to consider giving to our Federation's Emergency Response Fund, which will allow us to provide housing assistance, food and mental health services to those in need, and so much more during this critical time.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you and your family during this time of crisis. Thank you in advance for your generosity and quick response to this very important communal need during this time of crisis.

We are offering events in a virtual format and you can access events and learn more here
