The following is a growing list of ways to help the Houston-area Jewish community and schools recover from the devastation of Tropical Storm Harvey. This information is being updated in accordance with what Houston community leaders are expressing is needed most. Please check back here often for the most up-to-date and relevant opportunities to help. 

  • In addition to financial contributions, the Houston community has asked that we please send gift cards to be distributed to faculty, staff, and families in need. Prizmah will collect and distribute these cards starting immediately.

       Please purchase gift cards from: 
       Target, Kroger, Home Depot, Best Buy, Walmart, Visa, and American Express
       Gift cards can be mailed to: 

       Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools 
       Attn: Robin Feldman - Harvey Relief  
       254 W. 54th Street, 11th floor 
       New York, NY 10019

Why gift cards? 
Gift cards are a quick and easy way for the schools to help meet the needs of their own communities, while relieving some of the work of the local Federation. Unrestricted funds are being collected by Houston Federation (and others - links listed below) and we encourage you to support those funds as well.
