Jewish Federation Baton Rouge Flood Relief Fund
We wanted to inform you that the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago has opened a fund to support broad-based relief efforts in and around the greater Baton Rouge area.
As you know, relentless flooding has devastated southern Louisiana--now a federal disaster area--where rising waters have killed at least seven people, destroyed countless homes and forced tens of thousands to flee for their lives, including many from the local Jewish community. Over the past week, the need for human services and home remediation has grown significantly.
Well over 100,000 families have already registered with FEMA for emergency aid, temporary rental assistance, home repairs and other immediate needs; there is no telling how many more will register in the coming days and weeks. In the Jewish community specifically, close to 40 Jewish families have been displaced or have suffered severe damage to their homes. Estimates for home remediation expenses alone are ranging up to $20,000 per household and few, if any, of the impacted families have flood insurance.
The Jewish Federation Baton Rouge Flood Relief Fund will support relief and rebuilding work in the affected areas. One hundred percent of the funds collected will go to relief and recovery services in Louisiana, including:
- cash assistance for homeowners and households to pay for temporary housing, cleaning supplies, and other flood remediation costs;
- crisis mental health services; and
- pre-school and school placements.
Jewish Federation staff are working with Jewish Federations of North America, the Jewish Federation of Baton Rouge and relief organizations within and outside of the Jewish community to allocate and monitor funds raised for this disaster.
We invite you to make a donation to the JF Baton Rouge Flood Relief Fund.
As developments unfold, we will continue to keep you informed.

Anshe Emet is launching a new theme for 2016-2017 called #weareansheemet. If you noticed our Facebook page or our tweets, we are up and running to capture the ruach of AES. We want to spotlight our diverse and vibrant congregation through pictures of our members whether they are engaging in activities from summer vacations, simchas, summer camp, family gatherings, or just great photos with AES members.
These photos may be used throughout the year highlighting our congregation. The resolutions of the pictures must be greater than 1 MB. Please submit photographs to [email protected]! We are so excited to see the energy of our tremendous community.
