Letters from the MJCC
The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland has a $1,750,000 Goal for the Israel Emergency Fund. The need is urgent! 100% of all funds raised go to Israel. The funds are supporting critical services for trauma relief, financial assistance, and needed supplies.
The MJCC will have blue ribbons to pick up at the Guest Services Desk.
