The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, provided an unprecedented $2 trillion to address the economic needs of Americans hard hit by the global pandemic. This Act was an important first step in addressing the urgent dire needs across the county, but we believe they did not go far enough.
The Jewish Federations of North America, in partnership with a coalition of charities, non-profits, and faith-based organizations that serve over 87 million people annually, is pushing Congress for greater aid and support for the independent sector. And, we need your help.
Hundreds of millions of people in America are at risk of losing access to food, medicine and other basic needs provided by our network of Jewish and other social service organizations.
