The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is helping to support earthquake relief in Turkey.
More than 19,300 people across Turkey and Syria have died as a result of a massive earthquake and aftershocks this week. More than 64,000 people have been injured.
“As we witness the devastation from the recent earthquake in Turkey, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh sends our deepest sympathies to everyone affected and to their loved ones watching fearfully from Pittsburgh and elsewhere,” Pittsburgh’s Federation leaders said in a statement. “If people feel moved to help, our national organization Jewish Federations of North America is sending aid right now to our international partners already on the ground in the affected area. 100% of donations net of credit card fees will go directly to help people in this crisis. Go to jewishpgh.org to give.” PJC
