War in Israel Resources

Once again, on a holy day of the Jewish calendar, the people of Israel have come under attack.  Once again, the brave military forces of the State of Israel are responding and will defend our beloved Jewish state.  

And, once again, the Jewish Federations across North America will act immediately and comprehensively to support our brothers and sisters as they defend Israel. 

The needs are still evolving in Israel. When collective action is needed, Jewish Federations are there.

Am Yisrael Chai.
