Community Relations Committee
The Federation's Community Relations Committee (CRC) is the instrument by which Jewish interests in public life are served. It serves as the expression of Jewish conscience on matters of communal concern, and coordinates the federation's activities furthering relations between our Jewish community and the general community. The CRC works closely with Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry, the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice, and Tulsa Interfaith Alliance on a wide variety of interfaith projects and programs.
WILD FIRES IN ISRAEL - Update
In the face of the tragic wildfire in the Carmel Mountains of northern Israel, the worst natural disaster in Israel's history, the Jewish Federation of Tulsa and our community have continued our demonstrated history of a strong commitment to the State and people of Israel.
The fire is now under control, but it's impact has been staggering: 42 people have died, more than 20,000 have been evacuated, and more than 8,000 acres have burned, destroying more than 4 million trees.
We've been heartened by the immediate outpouring of generous support from our community. Though the fire is contained, Israel must now focus on assisting the families of those killed or injured, providing temporary shelter and resources for those displaced, rebuilding structures and communities, and acquiring the equipment and resources necessary to confront future disasters of this kind.
Israel's critical rebuilding needs can be met through your generous dontation to the Jewish Federation of Tulsa's Israel Fire Emergency Fund.
