Support Our Family in Israel

As hundreds of rockets continue to rain down on Israel and target Israelis where they live and work, the nation remains at a frightening standstill:

In response, we are joining the Jewish Federations of North America in opening an emergency fund to provide emergency aid and alleviate the pain and suffering of Israelis living in harm's way. 100% of funds collected will be sent directly to our trusted partners on the ground, providing emergency support to Israeli citizens affected by the attacks. Your donation will provide care for homebound elderly and disabled adults during this time of terror, respite for tens of thousands of children fleeing rocket attacks, and crisis counseling for Israelis who are overwhelmed by anxiety and in need of relief. The full extent of all needs is not yet known.

Other steps we can take during this crisis:

  • Go to your synagogue this Shabbat to express solidarity with the Israeli people;
  • Join one of JFNA's Solidarity Missions to Israel – this Sunday, July 13, and again later this month. For more information, contact Karen Strauss at 212-284-6521 or;
  • Write your Member of Congress to urge them to publicly condemn the rocket attacks against Israeli citizens and to issue statements in support of Israel;
  • Submit a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper to express your support for Israel;
  • Reach out to your friends – Jewish and non-Jewish – to discuss the realities in Israel; and,
  • Support Israel visibly wherever you can.

Our thoughts are with the people of Israel as we pray for peace and security. We will keep you updated as the situation evolves. Thank you for supporting Israel. We are stronger together.
