THE GREENSBORO JEWISH FEDERATION
STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH ISRAEL

The Greensboro Jewish Federation is deeply disturbed by the escalating violence in Jerusalem and throughout the State of Israel. We condemn the barrage of rocket attacks on innocent Israeli civilians launched from the Gaza Strip. The Federation stands in solidarity with Israel, our Jewish homeland, to which our community is deeply connected through mishpacha (family) and kehillah (community). We unequivocally support Israel’s right to defend its people from attack. Utmost efforts must be made to defuse tensions. We call on all parties to take the moral, responsible, and necessary steps to de-escalate the violence, and promote peace and security for Israelis and Palestinians.

YOU CAN HELP RIGHT NOW

 

We know that when a problem arises, help will be needed immediately. That is why we maintain core support year in and year out for the Jewish Agency for Israel and for JDC, as well as close ties with the Israel Trauma Coalition and more. Our Federation partners on the ground in Israel have assessed the current needs and are already aiding those impacted by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist rocket attacks.

 

Current needs include trauma care for families under rocket attack; trauma care for first responders coming off of the Meron disaster and now dealing with the current wave of terror; psychological services for new immigrants and for residents and staff of Jewish Agency Absorption Centers; emergency aid to families of those killed and injured from rocket attacks; the delivery of emergency social services to vulnerable populations including those with disabilities, Holocaust survivors and at-risk families unable to work due to school closures and travel safety concerns; and support services for the 7000+ young Jewish adults from around the world currently in Israel for MASA immersive Israel experiences. A detailed list of needs can be found here.

 

The Greensboro Jewish Federation, along with Jewish communities all over the country, is joining the national effort to help our brothers and sisters in Israel.

  • Urge Members of Congress to Stand with Israel

    Israel is currently under a continuing rocket attack originating from Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. Reports indicate that numerous civilians have been killed by these attacks and many more have been injured. Join Jewish Federations in calling on the US Government and international community to do all that they can to end these attacks immediately. Tell your representatives to publicly stand with Israel and support its right to defend its citizens!
