CRS Economic Response

In times of economic transition, we know that many of our congregants face employment challenges. We as a community remain committed to offering assistance where we can, both with the support and availability of our clergy and staff, and the ability to draw on the diversity and expertise of our congregation and community.

In addition to the resources of the Rodeph Sholom community, we are also part of a UJA-Federation initiative called Connect-to-Care. UJA-Federation of New York created Connect to Care to provide a broad array of coordinated services designed to offer you and your family the help you need where and when you need it, including a new interest-free loan program for families significantly affected by the recession who do not have sufficient, non-retirement savings to pay for a compelling nonrecurring need. For further information, or to learn more about whether the loan program is right for you or a loved one, contact the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services at (212) 399-2685 ext. 206 or For information about other services offered through Connect-to-Care, click here.
