Help Ethan Campaign
On June 29, at Goldman Union Camp Institute, a Reform Jewish summer camp near Indianapolis, Ethan Kadish was teaching a group of younger children how to play Ultimate Frisbee when a bolt of lightning struck him to the ground.
Today, Ethan is in the Rehabilitation Unit at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. He has a long road ahead, and he is working hard in his daily therapies.
His family is facing mounting financial costs related to his ongoing care and necessary accommodations to their home. Read more about Ethan and his family here.
In connection with the Union for Reform Judaism, and Help Hope Live, URJ Camp George is organizing a fundraising flash mob on the 8th Night of Chanukah called 8th Night for Ethan.
This campaign will be encouraging members of our community to give donations (in multiples of 18) over an 18 hour period on the last night of Hanukkah. Donations will go directly to Help Hope Live, a charity in the United States which has set up a fund to assist the family*.
Please watch our Facebook Page or visit and like Camp George’s Facebook for updates starting on Wed November 27th (the first night of Hanukkah) - and ending on Wednesday December 4th (the 8th Night) with an opportunity to donate directly to support Ethan and his family.
We encourage our community to participate in this act of Tikkun Olam by contributing your support.
