Our family had the privilege to visit Israel 15 months ago with the help of JNF. We spent a day visiting the communities around Gaza and meeting such wonderful people and seeing how they lived and thrived with the support of JNF projects like bomb shelters and kids centers, etc. Its been shocking to see what has happened to all the people we met during our trip, losing their lives, homes, family members and so much more. Now many of them are living out of hotels and other temporary housing with whole families in one room. They are struggling to get access to basic needs like clothing, food and support for children and psychological services. They have lost everything including any source of income and are running out of savings. Please help us help them. We are helping raise JNF raise emergency funds to support these people who have nothing left and desperately need our help.

Jewish National Fund is on the ground with communities in the south devastated by the attacks, ensuring immediate needs are met and future requirements are fulfilled. We have worked closely with these southern communities for decades. We know them better than anyone else, and will be there when they start to rebuild their lives in the future. I am supporting JNF-USA's $10 million Israel Resilience Campaign to fund these needs:

·     Evacuating 10,000 residents from Gaza border communities to
safer places—the State covers the evacuation of everyone within 4
kilometers of the Gaza border but everyone within 7 kilometers
must be evacuated – the entire area has become a closed military
zone. We have evacuated 2,200 people to the Eilot region, 1,500
people to Ramat Hanegev, 1,500 people to Central Arava, and
more every day.

·     Providing evacuees with necessary supplies such as bedding,
toiletries, clothing, etc.

·     Providing firefighting and protective equipment for civil defense –
the first responders to community emergencies -- including radios,
bulletproof vests, helmets, and tactical clothing.

·     Providing high-quality psychological treatment for civilians,
including children, who have experienced this catastrophe

·     Providing respite activities for the children traumatized by terror.

·     Going from home to home in the cities of Sderot, Ofakim, and
Arad to help the elderly, the infirmed, and the needy with food and

·     Promising to rebuild communities devastated by the attacks and
keep the spirits and hopes of the people who live there, strong.

·     Caring for the children whose parents are on the Ovda Airforce
Base in the Negev so the parents can continue their vital work
protecting our homeland.

We support 10 Gaza Envelope communities most closely, including those hardest hit such as Sderot, Kissufim, and others. One of our communities, Kibbutz Reim was the site of the Nova Music Festival where 3,000 young people gathered to celebrate peace and music. So far, 260 attendees are among those massacred by Hamas gunmen and many were kidnapped from the festival and taken hostage.

We are preparing our community partners in the north for the possibility of an expanded conflict by requisitioning portable bomb shelters for community spaces.

Israelis are feeling like this is their 9/11 – yet proportionally at a per-capita scale 6x the magnitude. This attack has decimated many communities, but they will never destroy our spirit. We stand together, as one Jewish community, ready to help Israelis in this difficult time. Am Yisrael Chai.
