Over the past weeks, we have read report after report on the escalation of violence in Israel. The unpredictable nature of the current situation has forced every Israeli to worry about their personal security and that of their friends, families and neighbors.
Moments like these reinforce why Israel and overseas needs to remain a fundamental part of Federations' work. Jewish Federations across North America, including ours, have for decades invested in helping Israel respond in crises like these.
Thanks to your financial support of our Annual Campaign, the Jewish Agency for Israel established the Fund for the Victims of Terror, which is a standing resource that provides immediate and direct assistance to those directly affected by recent attacks.
