    Jewish Federations are leading this Israel Terror Relief Fund to help our partners, The Jewish Agency for Israel, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Israel Trauma Coalition and World ORT, deliver immediate services and assistance on the ground throughout the South. Such services include trauma counseling, financial assistance, portable bomb shelters, and moving more than 4,000 school age children to safer parts of Israel, so they can remain out of harm's way.
    • The Israel Terror Relief Fund will support The Jewish Agency in providing a range of programs and services, including respite for the 23,500 grade-school students who live in affected areas, as well as psychological interventions for parents and children from Israel’s southern region. The Jewish Agency’s Fund for the Victims of Terror will provide such necessities as medical equipment, treatment and other help that is not provided by the state; emergency cash grants; basic furnishings, repair and home equipment; and other services to help restore and rebuild lives.
    • The Israel Terror Relief Fund will enable JDC to distribute food and emergency kits to the elderly and disabled, implement emergency caseworkers to provide emotional and physical support and provide immediate and special care to the most severely disabled or frail elderly in their homes. JDC will also offer children post-trauma interventions and volunteer-led activities in shelters.
    Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City is also working in close coordination with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, as well as local traditional and Orthodox synagogues in Kansas City to help.

    The generosity of our donors and the strength of our agencies on the ground will enable Jewish Federations to respond quickly and effectively at this challenging time for the State of Israel. Together, we stand strong as a global Jewish community, and remain faithfully committed to our Israeli brothers and sisters during times of need.
