Over 700 people are already dead and thousands more are injured. Over 100 Israelis, both civilians and brave soldiers, are hostages of Hamas inside Gaza, and their suffering is unimaginable. Every Israeli has been impacted in some way by the events of the past two days and the needs are already tremendous.
UJIA is immediately launching the Israel at War Community Appeal. Funds raised in this Appeal will go to help victims of this war, focused on the exponential increase we are seeing in trauma cases and supporting the Jewish Agency’s Victims of Terror fund that will provide critical support to those affected in the south.
50 years ago, our community, through UJIA, raised many of millions of pounds to support Israel during the Yom Kippur War. This community has always shown its support for Israel in dark times. Once again we ask you to show your solidarity. It is our responsibility, as part of the Jewish People, to help our Israeli brothers and sisters at this terrible time.
