The People of Israel Need Our Help Now

As Israelis continue to suffer daily under barrage of Hamas missiles, they urgently need our support – especially the children, elderly and people with disabilities.

Your gift will help the most vulnerable people of Israel by providing:

  • Activities for children in shelters. With many schools in Southern Israel closed, children are spending prolonged periods of time in public shelters. In order to allow for daily life to feel as normal as possible and for parents to be able to continue to work when possible, the children need arts and crafts, games and other activities.
  • Post-trauma interventions for children. Looking to the day after, Israel's Physiological Services (SHEFI) has already requested treatment programs to address the post-trauma needs of children in the affected areas.
  • Emergency kits for the elderly and people with disabilities in areas under fire. Kits contain essentials such as a flashlight, transistor radio, batteries, first aid kit and bottled water.
  • Emergency caseworkers to ensure that approximately 50,000 isolated elderly, Holocaust survivors, and seniors with special needs have food, medicine, groceries, and emotional support during this traumatic time.
  • Emergency “Meals on Wheels” food delivery to the elderly. 
  • Providing online crisis response that delivers urgent, quickly accessible information to the Israeli public including:
    • Videos and tip sheets on how to handle children’s anxiety and trauma
    • Information for people with disabilities and those helping them in times of emergency
    • Instructions for how elderly Israelis can cope and receive assistance during the crisis

Your generous gift will help us expand our work and outreach to the people of Israel during this crisis.
