At least 38 U.S. deaths have been blamed on Sandy, which made landfall in New Jersey on Monday, the Associated Press reported. The storm left millions without power or mass transit, and forced scores of organizations—including Jewish institutions such as JFNA—to close their offices.

“The Jewish community and the Federation Movement send our support and prayers to those affected by the hurricane, and we will stand beside them during the recovery and rebuilding,” JFNA said in a press release.
