Last night over 120 young adults showed their support for our friends in Haifa at CJP Young Adults’ Emergency Fundraiser for Haifa Wildfires at FELT in Boston.

Over the course of the 3-hour event, we raised approximately $2,700 through cash, credit card and text message donations. And with the generous matching and double matching funds of Lisa and Neil Wallack, Larry and Penny Goodman, and Larry and Beth Greenberg of CJP’s Board of Directors, the young adult contribution to the Haifa Emergency Relief Fund from last night alone totals $5,700. Lisa Wallack and Larry Goodman serve as the Co-Chairs of Boston-Haifa Committee and Larry Greenberg is the Chair of CJP’s Israel and Overseas Committee.

It was truly amazing to see members of the community to come out on such short notice. To check out some other pics from the evening, click here
