Reform Movement's $100,000 to Firefighters' Association

The Reform Movement today presented $100,000 to the Uniformed Firefighters' Association Widows and Children's Fund, part of the more than $1.2 million distributed to help those affected by the September 11th tragedy. The funds were raised by contributions to the UAHC Disaster Relief Fund from Reform Jews across North America.

The presentation came as the Union of American Hebrew Congregations presented its highest honor - the Eisendrath "Bearer of Light" Award for Service to the World Community - to the New York City firefighters, police officers, and rescue workers who labored around the clock to save lives and recover the fallen in its aftermath of the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center. Members of FDNY Battalion 8, all of whom lost friends and comrades on September 11th, accepted the donation.
