Wed. 6/18/2014 Long Island Storm Recovery Seminar for Clergy

Often, ministers, rabbi and other clergy are the true “first responders” after a disaster — in part because of their close ties to the community, including knowledge of who in the community is most vulnerable. Moreover, now a year and a half after Super Storm Sandy, community religious leaders often know who still needs assistance and have a unique opportunity to help educate community members about available resources.

Recognizing this, Michael Raab, Nassau County Sandy Storm Recovery Liaison, has asked that the following announcement be forwarded to clergy of all faiths:
