stop-the-sirens_851x315_FBCoverWe can’t silence them but we can try to soften their impact on children and families living under their blare.

Give now to the ‘Stop the Sirens” campaign. 100 percent of the money goes moving children to safety, caring for elderly who can not leave the shelters, helping victims of these attacks rebuild their homes and businesses and more. Show your solidarity and support for the people of Israel.

You may give online or send your check to: The Jewish Federation of Peoria, 2000 Pioneer Parkway, Suite 10b, Peoria, IL 61615.


aerialstarsThe Peoria Holocaust Memorial is being renovated and refurbished. After 11 years, the elements and simply the weight of the millions of buttons inside the cases have taken their toll.

The revonation will improve the existing structurs to insure they last for years to come. In the meantime, the buttons, glass, aluminum and other items are being stored and cleaned. A day for a rededication and re-opening hasn’t been set but check back here for more information.
