Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.

As a connected and caring community, the North Peninsula Jewish Community is reaching out to ask for your support to help our friends during this continuing crisis. The options below highlight some of the relief efforts coordinated by or related to Jewish organizations, as well as those that support the broader community.
