$10 million Holocaust survivors’ emergency fund to be launched


NEW YORK (JTA) — The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation will establish a $10 million fund for emergency services for Holocaust survivors in North America.

The fund, to be established through a grant to be paid out over the next five years, will be distributed through the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

The Weinberg Holocaust Survivors Emergency Assistance Fund will go toward a range of emergency services, including medical equipment and medications, dental care, transportation, food and short-term home care, for survivors in their home communities.

The Baltimore-based Weinberg Foundation is one of the largest private U.S. Jewish foundations.
