2021 Winter Storm Response

Given the unprecedented weather conditions and their resulting effects, the Foundation is providing support to those affected.
Our community is benefiting from so many besides us.  Within days of millions losing power and water, some local kosher establishments, coordinated by Chaim Goldfeder of Kosher Palate,  offered free hot kosher meals for anyone in need, distributing thousands of meals the week of the storm. To ensure they were able to continue this generous offering, the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas made the swift decision to fund many of these meals.

Now, the Foundation is prepared to help the broader community as a whole. We have established the Natural Disaster Emergency Response Fund of the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation which will provide emergency aid to nonprofit organizations that are providing vital and urgent assistance to affected communities and families. With many still suffering even after the power returns – burst pipes, plumbing issues, and more – it is not just personal homes being affected. Many of the buildings that house nonprofits have major issues, one coming to mind is a shelter that had to close for first time in 35 years due to structural damages. This fund will make emergency grants to both agencies that need the help and those that are providing help to the needy.

If you are able, please consider visiting our Donate page to contribute to the Natural Disaster Emergency Response Fund. Together, we can help more in need. We have been here for tornadoes in Dallas, Covid19 and now the Dallas Winter Storm. We will always be here to help.
