Los Alamos Jewish Community Needs Help

Update 2 - Los Alamos Wildfire:  A wildfire is threatening Los Alamos and the surrounding communities. People in the Los Alamos Jewish community (and others, of course) may need assistance.

As of 8:25 pm, KOB states that
  • The fire has grown to over 60,000 acres.
  • The entire town of Los Alamos was evacuated by 7:20 p.m. Monday after receiving reverse 911 calls.
  • LANL will remain closed at least through Wednesday.

If you are able to help, please contact
Rabbi Jack Shlachter
of the Los Alamos Jewish Center
(505) 500-2668

At last report, Rabbi Jack is in Santa Fe (LANL is shut down at least through Wednesday) to coordinate any assistance needs for the Los Alamos Jewish community. The needs are unknown right now, but may include housing and other short-term support.
