Hurricane Harvey Victims See This Genesis 12:3 Promise Unfold

Jewish communities in southeastern Texas are rallying to deal with the effects of Hurricane Harvey, which has left a swath of destruction in the region.
Chabad Coastal Bend—which is based in Corpus Christi, near where Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 storm on Friday night—said it was "gearing up to provide essential relief to our friends and neighbors who have been severely impacted."
"Volunteers are being fielded to provide critical supplies such as water, generators, gift cards from home repair stores and support to the residents in the hardest hit areas of Padre Island in Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, Rockport and the surrounding areas," it continued. "Please donate in any way you can. We are in need of supplies and funds to ensure we can help as many people as possible and as soon as possible."
Houston—home to a large Jewish population—is experiencing heavy flooding from Harvey as it lingers in the area, now as a tropical storm.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston stated on Sunday, "Parts of our community have been impacted by the severe weather of the past two days. We are working with our partner agencies to assess the current situation in our community and determine priority on action items."
"We will communicate out as soon as we know how best to move forward in the short and long term," it went on to say. "If you are concerned about your safety or in immediate danger, contact local authorities. Stay safe and exercise caution in the coming days as rain and inclement weather conditions are expected to continue."

Jewish Population Approaches Pre-WWII Levels

Jewish Population Approaches Pre-WWII Levels

JERUSALEM, Israel -- There are nearly as many Jewish people in the world now as there were before the Holocaust. That's according to the annual assessment of the Jerusalem-based Jewish People Policy Institute.
The JPPI said Jewish population has increased steadily and now numbers 14.2 million. 

But if those who have one Jewish parent or are partially Jewish and identify themselves as such are included that number approaches the 16.5 million Jews who were alive before World War II.  About six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust.
The report said the increase is due in part to natural growth mainly in Israel. But it's also because more people who are the offspring of mixed marriages in the U.S. are identifying themselves as Jewish.
According to Israeli law, being "Jewish" is defined as having a Jewish mother. But the Law of Return permits immigration to all who have at least one Jewish grandparent.
Contrary to popular belief, young Jews in the U.S. are becoming more pro-Israel mostly because of a growth in politically conservative Orthodox Jewish community, the JPPI said.
Israel has the largest Jewish population in the world, followed by the U.S., France and Canada.
