Earthquake in Nepal

This past week disaster struck as Nepal suffered from a massive earthquake, killing more than 4,000 people and leaving many thousands more with inadequate food, shelter, and other basic needs.  That week we read in the Torah from the portion entitled Kedoshim in which we are taught “You shall not stand by idly on the blood of your fellow” (Lev. 19:16).  We are commanded to contribute what we can to help.  Already, the state of Israel has been one of the world leaders in offering assistance to those suffering in Nepal.  Congregation Beth Israel is committed to helping the relief effort as well.  We encourage you to visit the websites of the following Jewish organizations that have set up special relief funds for the earthquake in Nepal.  Please contribute what you can and help us to provide shelter, safety, and sustenance for the people of Nepal.
