We are all feeling the uncertainty and anxiety of living through unsettling times. However, it is our vulnerable population and most importantly, those over the age of 70, who are most at risk. Our Jewish imperative to protect the vulnerable is important today more than ever. Even in these difficult times, we will, as a Community, continue to do all that we can to help those who are less fortunate. As we live through this crisis, our sense of Community and our values of Tikkun Olam need to remain strong. Members of our Community will face unprecedented challenges and concerns and we NEED YOUR HELP.

Federation responds to hunger crisis

By Joel Pittelman, Chair, Jewish Community Relations Council

When you are asked in the world to come, “What was your work?” and you answer, “I fed the hungry,” you will be told, “This is the gate of Adonai, enter into it, you who have fed the hungry.”                                                                        ~ Midrash Psalms 118:17 
 

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, a severe food crisis has developed in Collier County. This urgent hunger problem is impacting the most vulnerable within our community. Worker illness, lack of access to food markets and an array of other reasons are causing tremendous food insecurity for many Collier County low-income families.

 

While established food pantries are doing their best to meet the needs, the needs have outstripped the usual resources.  As a result, other organizations have recruited volunteers who are working long hours to collect, sort and deliver food, while following the safety guidelines imposed by the pandemic.

 

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Naples identified two organizations that are providing food assistance to hundreds of low-income families — the SWFL Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) and the Hunger and Homeless Coalition of Collier County. These two organizations are providing an invaluable service to the most vulnerable people in our community – feeding hundreds of people weekly with quality food delivered in a safe manner.  But they are struggling for funds to meet the increasing needs.  

 

In Pirke Avot we read, “Hillel said, do not separate yourself from the community.” The Jewish Federation of Greater Naples, recognizing it responsibility to be part of the effort to meet the needs of the Greater Naples community, has made a meaningful grant to each of these two organizations. While the Federation recognizes that their donation cannot meet all the needs of these two organizations, our contribution will relieve the hunger of several hundred families for a month. We encourage members of our Jewish community to extend the impact of our support by making tax-exempt individual contributions to these two organizations:  SWFL SURJ Mutual Aid Project, https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/swfl-surj-covid-19-mutual-aid-response  and the Hunger and Homeless Coalition of Collier County, collierhomelesscoalition.org.   The JCRC is grateful to the Federation and to our many caring community members for their support.
