Holocaust Spring Film Series: Film #3: "Escape from Sobibor"

Jewish Federation Bronfman Family JCC 524 Chapala Street
Santa Barbara, CA, CA 93101

It’s been only two-and-a-half weeks since the catastrophic 7.8 earthquake took thousands of lives in Nepal on April 25 and the already-traumatized Nepalese people have been affected by yet another large scale quake. A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal, resulting in additional injuries and fatalities there and in India and China.


Just as residents were trying to return to normalcy, tremors set off landslides, buildings collapsed, houses were damaged, and fear and anxiety consumed the nation.


Last month’s earthquake left more than 8,000 people dead, over 14,000 injured, and hundreds of thousands homeless. According to the United Nations, only 13 percent has been raised of the $423 million needed to help Nepal recover from the April quake. There was already a substantial lack of supplies and materials available to relief workers prior to the new quake.


Join us in demonstrating the ancient Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world by sending your gift today. Your support will provide help to the people of Nepal wherever it is needed most as supplies of clean water, food, fuel, and electricity are rapidly depleting.



Federations are continuing to collect funds for emergency relief efforts and working closely with our overseas partners.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims of this tragedy. Learn more here
