Response to Kansas Tragedy
By now may of you are no doubt aware of the tragic events which took place on Sunday which have deeply impacted the Kansas Jewish community. In light of these events we wanted to share the following statement from the Jewish Federations of North America (of which JFNH is a member). Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and victims of this terrible tragedy.
New York - Following today's tragic and fatal shooting in the Kansas City Jewish community, the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) expressed sympathy and support. Michael Siegal, chair of the JFNA Board of Trustees, stated:
"We at the Jewish Federations stand in solidarity with the Jewish community in Kansas City following today's horrific events, and our sympathies are with the families of the victims. No community should have to face a moment such as this one, and we pledge to do whatever is necessary to help the people of Kansas City through this terrible time. Today, on the eve of Pesach, we are left to contemplate how we must continue our work building a world in which all people are free to live their lives without the threat of terror."
JFNA continues to work with Congress and the Department of Homeland Security to develop programs to improve security for at-risk nonprofit organizations throughout the country, including Jewish institutions. The organization is currently working to ensure that funding for such programs will continue in the coming fiscal year.

JFNH is proud to announce The Annebelle and Arnold Cohen Camperships
For many years the Cohen family has been an integral part of Jewish life in New Hampshire and the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire is delighted that they have chosen to help honor this legacy of community commitment by helping more children attend Jewish summer camp. The Annebelle and Arnold Cohen Camperships is a needs-based program which will allow a limited number of Jewish children in New Hampshire to attend one of the three wonderful Jewish overnight camps run by the non-profit Eli and Bessie Cohen Camps organization: Camp Pembroke, Camp Tel Noar and Camp Tevya.
Please note that there are only a few spots left at the camps this summer, so if you are interested in finding out more please contact the JFNH office at firstname.lastname@example.org right away. The Arnold and Annebelle Cohen Camperships provide a 1/3 discount for the cost of attending one of their three camps, for one child. Applicants should be prepared to provide financial information, as requested, as this is a need-based program.
The Cohen Camps include Camp Tevya, a large co-ed overnight camp located in Brookline, New Hampshire as well as the slightly smaller co-ed overnight Camp Tel Noar in Hampstead, New Hampshire and Camp Pembroke, an overnight camp for girls in Pembroke, Massachusetts (near Cape Cod). For more information about each of the Cohen Camps and the unique experiences they have to offer, please go to: http://www.cohencamps.org/camps/let-us-help-you-choose/
