The Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans have each issued $1,000 grants toward the Alabama tornado relief efforts.

According to the Foundation, "As a community that knows all too well the difficult road that lies ahead for those affected by this terrible disaster, we are pleased that we can reach out and lend both our financial and heartfelt emotional support to Birmingham and the Tuscaloosa area... While we wish that we could afford to send more, we feel privileged to be able to make this donation to help others as we were helped in our time of great need."

On June 1, New Orleans City Councilman Arnie Fielkow will lead an annual youth trip to Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. The bus trip is a civil rights history tour that includes about 240 students. Because it is a day trip, there is no luggage, so Sophie B. Wright Charter School and Touro Synagogue are working to collect items that will be contributed to the relief effort.

Items include paper goods like toiler paper and paper towels, flashlights, batteries, canned food, cleaning supplies and gloves, baby bottles, diapers, trash bags and personal care items. Donations need to be dropped off at Touro Synagogue by May 27.
