Grants and housing available

Dear Temple Beth Am Members,

    A number of people have responded to UJA's offer of financial assistance.  The grant stipulates that the funds be used for reimbursement for losses not normally covered by FEMA (such as food and clothing).  In addition, I have other funds made available through the generousity of congregants anyone in need.  I cannot stress enough that any requests are totally confidential.  The funding is intended to help, but we cannot help if you don't contact me.  My email is or my private line 516-378-3095
    Thank you, Rabbi Brown

Also, for those congregants who will be in need of housing in the Merrick/Bellmore area after Hurricane Sandy, please contact Jayne in the temple office at 516-367-3347 or contact Rabbi Brown.  We have been contacted by a local resident whose house is available for rent after January 10.
