War in Israel Resources

We may feel helpless in the face of war in Israel, but we can still take action to remain strong and united as a Jewish community. As we pray for peace in the Middle East, there are ways we can support our Jewish family and friends, both at home and abroad. Below is a list of resources.

WAYS TO DONATE:

If you would like to make a donation to support Israel through the Jewish Federation, you can find their donation page HERE

If you would like to donate money to help civilians directly affected by the war, you might consider donating to the Daniel Center for Progressive Judaism, a Reform congregation in Tel Aviv that has opened its guest house in Jaffa (normally reserved for tourists) to shelter those displaced by the fighting. Their donation page may be found HERE
