A Message from Rabbi Knight: How can we help the victims of Hurricane Harvey?

Dear Friends,

If you are like me, you have read or watched the news about the unprecedented disaster developing in Texas. I have been in regular contact with colleagues, friends, and Jewish leaders in Houston and the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. A few rabbis have lost their homes from flooding. We know of one synagogue that has sustained extensive damage to their sanctuary and building. Because the storm is still churning, Jewish leaders are still in the early stages of assessing the breadth of destruction, displacement, and need. As the avenues to help become clearer, we will update you on Temple Beth El’s organized response.

Right now, the best way to help is through donating money. Here are ways you can respond to the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey.

As the recovery continues, we pray that our communities will remain safe from harm. We will continue to update you in the coming days and weeks ahead as we determine the best ways our community can help those affected by the storm.


Rabbi Asher Knight
