Israel Relief Fund 2021

Recent days have seen significant clashes between Palestinian protestors and Israeli security forces. While the violence had centered on Jerusalem, it has now also spread to other parts of Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank.

On Tuesday night, the violence from Gaza escalated significantly with a massive and unprecedented bombardment directed at the center of the country. Hundreds of rockets were fired at Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Ra’anana, Rishon LeTzion and other cities, leaving six dead and others injured. Millions of Israelis were forced to take refuge in shelters and safe rooms.

We support the government of Israel and the IDF as it undertakes its sacred work to protect and defend our beloved Jewish State. We stand with the people of Israel who are under attack. We mourn the loss of all innocent life; and we send our prayers for the speedy recovery of all those who have been injured.

To this end, we have opened the Israel Emergency Relief Fund 2021 to provide monetary support through the Jewish Federations of North America to our partners working on the ground in Israel. All money raised will be allocated to:

  • The Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) for psychological services for new immigrants and employees, working with the recently arrived Ethiopian Olim who are experiencing great trauma from this violence
  • The Fund for the Victims of Terror - immediate cash relief to those directly impacted by these attacks (loss of life or home, for example)
  • Masa Israel Journey (immersive experiences in Israel) - to provide support for the 7000+ fellows living in Israel through this program, with 1,600 directly affected by the heavy rocket fire, many of whom just arrived in Israel
  • Israel Trauma Coalition for both direct care and to support the first responders
  • American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) to ensure most critical needs of the vulnerable are being met

    It is your Federation gift that helps make all this possible. Thank you for making a difference.
