Brooklyn Emergency Fund for Israel

A joint effort of Kings Bay Y, iMishpacha, Jewish Parent Academy, Marks Jewish Community House of Bensonhurst, Shorefront Y, and American Forum for Israel

Saturday’s brutal attack on Israel by the Hamas terrorists is reminiscent of the worst and darkest times in Jewish history.  Many are asking what they can do to help.   We are announcing our joint Brooklyn Emergency Fund for Israel. Spearheaded by Brooklyn’s Jewish grass-roots initiatives and CBOs, we are committed to full transparency and collective decision-making on fund allocation. We will address some acute needs in Israel by directing donations to the most needy causes. We know we are here for a long haul, and Israel’s needs will change as the situation on the ground remains fluid. The sponsoring organizations will handle all administrative expenses, with  100% of the collected funds being directed to the most urgent needs.

All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law. EIN: 11-3068515

These include:

* Helping the families of those who were murdered by Hamas terrorists, captured and brought to Gaza, and severely wounded

* Assisting needy families of the reserve soldiers who left their families to volunteer in combat service

* Restoring normalcy to the affected communities around Gaza/ Sderot by working with local municipalities and community centers.

Please give generously to those whose lives will never be the same! All donor names will be published, and our Israeli partner organizations will be identified.

Other ways to help Israel:

* Please share real stories of Hamas-inflicted terror on social media and engage those currently indifferent. We know from our experience that Israel’s righteous cause will be subverted by those who support the slaughter of Israeli innocents.

* Please get in touch with your US Senators and Congress members. They must hear from you. Thank them for their support if they stand with Israel and urge those who dither in their support for humanity to stand with Israel.

* Reach out to Israelis you know in Israel and check how they are doing. Your person-to-person support is invaluable to them at this dark hour.

* Attend rallies and vigils to demonstrate to the world that we will not stand silent in the face of this barbarian genocide.

Some dark days are ahead of us, but we believe in the power of Israel and her people, her sense of mission and purpose, and her people’s resilience.

We pray for those innocent souls who were murdered by Hamas terrorists and for those who are held hostage by the savages in the Gaza Strip.
