Israel Needs Your Support
As you know, Israel has been battling severe fires for the past several days. Temple Israel is joining with Great Neck Synagogue, Temple Beth El of Great Neck and Young Israel of Great Neck in a community-wide emergency campaign to provide state of the art fire fighting equipment through the Jewish National Fund (JNF).
We hope you will join our community's united effort to bring relief to Israel during this crisis. You can donate directly through the following link http://support.jnf.org/goto/gnsfire.
To make a donation online to the "Israel Solidarity Fund", please click here and enter "JNF Fire-Fighting Campaign" in the "How would you like your name to be listed?" field, or if you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to the "Temple Israel of Great Neck" (note: "JNF Fire-Fighting Campaign" in the memo line on the check) and mail it to Temple Israel of Great Neck, 108 Old Mill Road, Great Neck, NY 11023.
Thank you for whatever help you can provide to Israel during this very difficult time.
