Fundraising Opportunities

We are thrilled to announce that an anonymous donor has generously donated $100,000 do our Friends of the Israel Defense Forces Fundraising Campaign! We have now reached our goal to purchase two fully operational ambulances that will be deployed in Israel. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to this campaign!

We encourage you to donate to the Jewish Federations of North America. Show your solidarity with Israel and make a vital impact for those directly affected by the war. Donate to the Jewish Federation Fund.

Sheba Medical Center has set up an emergency fund. They are in need of equipment for the hospital as well as the Barzilai Hospital in the South. They also have many patients in ICU and sadly are anticipating many more. They are planning to triple their ICU beds, rehab facilities and rehab staff. They have created a trauma center to help with the 2200 survivors of the music festival. And as we know, dealing with trauma will be a long lasting and difficult road. Due to the influx of patients, they will have to expand their Sheba Beyond services which provides virtual services and physical equipment to patients. This is just a few of the services they are implementing. We need everyone to mobilize in this effort. We can all help in some capacity. Ask your friends and family to help the wounded. People can text HEAL to 24365 to get to their donation landing page.
