Jewish Federation is responding to Hamas' brutal attack on Israel during the holiday of Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah and the tragic loss of life, injuries and ongoing hostage situation. More than 1,300 Israelis have been killed, including at least 220 soldiers, 22 US citizens, and 2 Canadians, with over 3,300 wounded, including 350 in serious condition. Additionally, over 6,000 rockets have been fired at Israel, and an estimated 150 Israelis are being held hostage in Gaza.

Thanks to a generous family in our community, every donation given to Jewish Federation’s Israel Emergency Fund will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $1 million.

With Israel at war, we are providing support - through our core partners - to assist victims of terror and those having experienced incredible trauma, while also assisting with ensuring the ongoing safety of vulnerable populations and rebuilding of critical infrastructure. 

With your contribution to the Israel Emergency Fund, not only are we able to help those in need now, but through our Annual Campaign, we can continue our strong support of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the JDC, whose ongoing partnerships allow us to quickly mobilize and respond in crisis situations like this.

100% of your investment to the Israel Emergency Fund will directly help those in need in Israel; your gift to the Annual Campaign solidifies our infrastructure for emergency response now and into the future.
