I am completely and utterly amazed at our community’s overwhelming response to the devastation in Houston from Hurricane Harvey. Our community’s generosity is nothing short of incredible, enabling us to respond to the need quickly and launch a successful gift card drive. Thank you to each and every person who contributed, and to our volunteers who made this gift card drive possible. Temple Israel has raised over $17,000 which we will be sending to Congregation Emanu El in Houston to distribute to their congregants.
Please see Rabbi Pam Silk’s touching response to our community’s generosity below.
Again, many thanks for each and every contribution,
Rabbi Deana Sussman Berezin

I’m speechless. And those who know me know that I’m never speechless. The words thank you fall so very short of the gratitude we have for the magnitude of the gifts you’re sharing with us. The generosity of your community is overwhelming and will help to wrap our community in such love and care as so many rebuild their ruined homes.
From our congregational family to yours, thank you, thank you, thank you.
