Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund

Together we are stronger.

Our hearts and prayers are with our neighbors and the families who have experienced horrific loss of life and destruction of property. As a community, we stand together to help. Our Jewish Federation of Louisville is ready to help those impacted by the extensive tornado and storm damage that has affected residents in Kentucky and surrounding regions.

A very heartfelt thank you to those who have supported our crisis relief effort in Western Kentucky. With close to 800 donors, funds to be donated estimated at $175k and numerous volunteer engagements our community made a tremendous difference.

We are closing our direct support, however, interested donors can still help by contributing directly to the Red Cross
