Support the People of Israel Today

Support Israel during this critical time.

On October 7, 2023, during Shabbat and the holiday of Shemini Atzeret, Hamas terrorists launched an unprecedented attack on Israel from Gaza, firing thousands of rockets, breaching the country’s borders, killing close to a 1,500 Israelis, taking over 240 hostages, and wounding thousands more. JSV is responding with the Israel 2023 Emergency Relief Fund, working in Israel with JFNA to support victims of terror, help rebuild damaged infrastructure, and address the unprecedented levels of trauma caused by this horrific attack.

Now, more than ever, our support is needed.
Am Yisrael Chai.
