Rally at City Hall to Increase Funding for Holocaust Survivor’s Initiative

9 May 2018 4:37 PM

According to the UJA Federation, 45,000 Holocaust survivors live in the New York area, approximately 40% in poverty. As Holocaust survivors age, the need for these services is greater than ever.

On Wednesday, the Jewish Caucus joined NYC Councilman Rafael L Espinal Jr. on the steps of City Hall to rally for an increase in funding for the Holocaust Survivor’s Initiative. Survivors, advocates, and elected officials also joined the rally to fight for this important cause.
