Resources on the Israel Crisis (May 2021)

While we all stay glued to the news coming out of Israel, anxiously waiting for the notification that announces the ceasefire we’ve all been praying for, many want to mobilize. We now know what is needed and how people can make a meaningful impact to support those most affected by the current crisis in Israel.
 
JAFI (the Jewish Agency for Israel), Israel Trauma Coalition, and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), all partner organizations of JFNA, are estimated to need at least $1.3 million for six main areas: psychological services for new immigrants and employees; the Fund for Victims of Terror; helping young Jewish adults from around the world who are in Israel as part of a MASA immersive experience; direct trauma care to those suffering PTSD; direct services to first responders, many of whom have not yet had time to recover from the Meron tragedy; and providing support to the most vulnerable Israelis, including children and families at risk, the elderly, and people with disabilities. To learn more about how these funds will be used, click HERE.
 
One-hundred percent of all donations to this fund will go directly to these partner agencies. Please note that your annual campaign pledge cannot be applied toward this emergency fund.
 
Even if there is a ceasefire as you read this, these funds are still needed to help Israelis recover.
