The Jewish Caring Network was formed when our friend, Jordan (Yarden in Hebrew), was diagnosed with cancer. It was hard to believe that a man so young, with a beautiful family, was facing the end of his life!
Immediately, the community sprang into action, sending meals and raising funds to help his family through the difficult time.
As a result of the overwhelming display of concern, the need to harness these resources for other families facing similar situations was realized. Gevuras Yarden, the "strength of Jordan", was established so that every time we do a mitzvah, it is in Jordan's merit.
The Jewish Caring Network now has two divisions: Gevruas Yarden, which assists families diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and Gevuras Rina which assists families with a loved one diagnosed with a life-long or serious illness.
