JFFS Updates: October 16, 2015




Over the past three weeks, we have read report after report on the escalation of violence in Israel. The unpredictable nature of the current situation has forced every Israeli to worry about their personal security and that of their friends, families and neighbors.
Moments like these reinforce why support for Israel and Jewish communities worldwide is a fundamental part of the work of Jewish Federation & Family Services, Orange CountyIndeed, along with other communities that are part of the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), we have invested for decades to help Israel respond in crises like these.
What can you do to help Israel NOW? Here are some ideas:
1. Reach out to your personal contacts in Israel to offer support and help reduce the isolation that Israelis can feel at such moments.
2. Share your love for the people of Israel on social media. There are numerous Facebook and Twitter-focused efforts that demonstrate the Jewish diaspora’s solidarity with the people of Israel. As we learn more about specific campaigns, we’ll share that information with you.
3. Contribute to the Generations Fund of JFFS, the source of our annual Core Grant to support Israel and overseas Jewish communities in need. DONATE NOW.
We continue to monitor events closely and pray for an end to the senseless carnage and for a clear path to peace.
