Israel Emergency Fund Campaign Tops $8.8 Million

Community support for Israel through Federation's Israel Emergency Fund is rapidly growing. In addition to more and more community leaders coming to the aid of Israelis through generous support and contributions, the number of area synagogues supporting the fund has increased over the past two weeks from 20 to 50 congregations.

During this year's High Holiday services, this growing list of synagogues will include the opportunity for their members to support Israelis through the fund, which is part of the United Jewish Communities' North American $500 million campaign to rehabilitate Israel's northern communities.

IEF has helped thousands of Israelis survive the war, and is now focused on rebuilding homes, schools and businesses; revitalizing the economy; and providing post-traumatic care and other human services to children, families and the region's most vulnerable populations.
