Hurrican Irma Updates

Due to Hurricane Irma and the need for many in the community to make appropriate and prudent preparations, the Charleston Jewish Federation and Family Services offices will be closed Friday, September 8th. A return date for programming is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, September 13th. Please note this date is subject to change depending on conditions.
Your safety and the safety of your family is of the utmost importance to us.
To keep abreast of CJF announcements, please check the CJF Facebook Page
If you need to evacuate due to the hurricane and need a place to go, please don't hesitate to reach out to Charleston Jewish Family Services for support: or 843-614-6494.
Since Hurricane Irma is a potential threat to the east coast, we thought it might be useful to all owners, particularly those who have never experienced a major hurricane, to have a copy of the South Carolina Hurricane Guide for 2017.

To view a copy of the guide, click here.
Please stay alert to weather reports on the progress and tracking of Hurricane Irma.

Residents are encouraged to review the city’s Hurricane Information webpage and the available resources in preparation, which can be accessed at Updates on Hurricane Irma will be released and posted to the webpage as new information becomes available.

For the most accurate and up-to-date weather forecasts, residents should stay tuned to the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service Charleston websites, as well as local media and the FEMA app.

A citizen information line is being established at 843-973-7219 and will go live with a message reflecting the most current information later today. Additional hurricane preparedness information can be found at and in the downloadable Hurricane Preparedness Guide.
