The Jewish Federation of Rockford held a prayer service Tuesday night at Temple Beth El. The federation also set up an Isreal Emergency fund. Anyone is welcome to donate. The federation already chipped in $15,000 and will match any additional donations.
Sherry Dreyfuss, President of the Jewish Federation of Rockford says, “This is something that's very important to us. We hate to see our homeland and our family and friends so displaced and hurt and suffering. If we can't be over there to help this is what we can certainly do.”
Donations can be dropped off at Temple Beth El or Ohave Sholom Synagogue in Rockford.
