As the unprecedented, sustained attacks by Hamas continue on Israeli citizens, Federation unequivocally supports Israel’s right to defend itself. We are working closely with our global partners to ensure that those impacted by this violence receive urgent, critical help.
We mourn the lives lost, and pray for the swift recovery of the wounded and the restoration of peace across the region.
Our Federation is proud of our ties across Israel. We are hearing heartbreaking reports from our friends in Ramat HaNegev that their tightly—but tenuously—woven community networks are being torn apart before their eyes. Even in the midst of the attacks by Hamas, we recommit to the vision of Israel as a state for all of its citizens.
We have opened the Israel Emergency Fund to ensure we can continue this crucial work. Many needs are still unknown, but this violence will have lasting impacts on its victims. All gifts to the Israel Emergency Fund will go immediately towards meeting urgent needs.
