This Sunday, the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center along with other community members will host a fundraiser for victims of the April earthquake in Nepal. The event, planned by the center’s social action committee, will include an Indian dinner and a concert by Stan Strickland, Greta Bro, and Steve Travis, who have come down from Boston for the occasion.

The Hebrew Center hasn’t done a fundraiser in two years, previously having hosted events for areas such as Pakistan or Darfur. But the earthquake this spring that left thousands across Nepal dead and caused hundreds of thousands to become homeless galvanized the center.

The Jewish ideal of Tikkun Olam, or “repairing the world,” helped to animate efforts to reach out to earthquake victims. All the money raised will be donated to the American Jewish World Service, which will then distribute the money in Nepal. The organization is notable not only for its support of distressed populations, but also its focus on helping particularly marginalized groups like women or LGBT individuals in disaster areas. This gives a unique sense of social justice to the event, which is already trying to get around 100 participants to raise several thousand dollars for the cause.

Kanta Lipsky, who serves on the social action committee and planned the event, was confident that the residents of Martha’s Vineyard would step up.

“Everyone realizes there are so many things going on in the world and always jumps at the chance to help,” said Ms. Lipsky. “That’s part of the Vineyard, I think.”

The donations have already started in the form of food, drinks and even the entertainment, who, aside from travel costs, will not be paid. And while the Hebrew Center will be the physical host for the event, it is by no means the only group putting it on.

“The cooks are Hindu, and in past we’ve had help from the Buddhist center,” said Ms. Lipsky.

The Hebrew Center is asking attendees to try and make a reservation so they can account for how many will need to be served Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 to $50 donation at the door. RSVP to The event will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Harriet B. Freedberg Learning Center at the Hebrew Center.

“It’s really a collaborative effort,” said Ms. Lipsky. “And we’re just so happy to be doing something like this.”
