Hillel Helps Seniors Cope in Moscow

In response to the devastating heatwave in Moscow and the pollution resulting from fires outside the city, JDC responded immediately to help those most hard hit by this ecological disaster, particularly the elderly. 

One response initiated by the JDC office in Moscow was to put together a plan to mobilize volunteers. A “call” went out over the Russian-language Facebook as well as through other means, and many responded, including participants from the Hillel in Moscow. 

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life posted an article on their website about the Moscow Hillel's efforts during this crisis.  Read more about it at Hillel Helps Moscow Seniors Cope with Heat, Pollution.
