JUF initiates Israel Emergency Campaign

(Visit the JUF Israel Emergency Campaign homepage)

As Hamas rockets continue terrorizing the Jewish state, JUF has advanced $1 million for urgent humanitarian needs, making Chicago the first North American community to respond to the Israeli government’s request for help.

The advance kickstarts JUF’s Israel Emergency Campaign, a special fund dedicated to humanitarian relief efforts on the ground. Through this campaign, JUF is moving children and families outside the most frequently targeted zones; providing special assistance to the elderly, disabled and homebound and at-risk children; replenishing the Fund for Victims of Terror; and addressing widespread trauma.

JUF also has created a special website with continuous updates on the emergency.

Please contribute to the Israel Emergency Campaign to provide essential support to vulnerable Israelis at this critical time.
