San Diego Jewish Academy Raises $22,000 for Sandy Relief

In response to the incredible amounts of work that still need to be done for communities on the eastern seaboard, last week the San Diego Jewish Academy held the MOTHER OF ALL GARAGE SALES, inviting the Jewish community to donate, shop and volunteer to raise funds and awareness for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Their momentous effort, and the out pouring of tzedakah from our community allowed them to raise more than $22,000, half of which was generously donated though Federation's Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, which, to date, has raised over $100,000!

A HUGE todah rabah to SDJA for their hard work, dedication, and generosity
On behalf of the thousands of people, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, who will benefit from the extraordinary generosity of the students, faculty, staff, parents and volunteers of SDJA, we would like to say todah rabah, thank you!  It was an honor to receive your gift to the Hurricane Sandy Relief fund of the Jewish Federations of North America.  100% of your donations will go directly to agencies involved in disaster relief and recovery in the affected parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Respectfully yours,

Claire Ellman, Board Chair & Michael Sonduck, Interim President and CEO Jewish Federation of San Diego County
