How you can help Isreal
How you can help Israel
  1. Victims of Terror:

    Immediate financial assistance to the 2,000+ families of individuals who have been killed, wounded, or kidnapped. 
  2. Evacuation and Support for Frontline Communities:

    Evacuation of residents from the south to safer parts of Israel; providing frail elderly and others who cannot leave their homes with food, generators, and medical services; supporting youth activities; and providing emergency cash assistance. We are also helping towns replace essential security and emergency services infrastructure and equipment; assisting agriculture businesses that have sustained tremendous losses. 
  3. Emergency Medical Assistance and Healthcare:

    Providing medical supplies and equipment for first responders and hospitals in the south. Supplies intended for months have been used up in days. The need for lifesaving equipment like X-ray machines, infusion pumps, and operating tables is greater than what hospitals have on hand. 
  4. Support Emergency Operations and Recovery Efforts:

    The demand for first responders is unprecedented. Ambulances are in need of supplies, medics are in need of protective gear to treat victims even while rockets are incoming, and the bodies of those who have died must be collected and cared for with dignity.
  5. Special Populations:

    Offering targeted assistance to vulnerable populations and their caregivers, including the elderly, young children, people living with disabilities, and marginalized populations, such as the Ultra-Orthodox and Bedouin communities. As well specialized support for Holocaust survivors. We are providing trauma care, food, medication, and homecare to survivors.
Federation CJA remains in close contact with our overseas partners, and we anticipate an unprecedented need for funds for the above and more:
Essential supplies

Water, food, clothing, medicine, baby products, generators, and other needed supplies for thousands evacuated from the war zone

Trauma and emotional first aid

To fund mental health professionals to provide emergency support to frontline workers and devastated residents

Protective equipment

and emergency kits for first responders

Assistance to vulnerable populations

Food packages, check-ins from professional staff, respite programs, and psychological counselling for Holocaust survivors and other seniors in areas threatened by rocket fire


Federation CJA is absorbing all administrative and operational costs and is dedicated to ensuring that 100% of donations to the Israel Emergency Fund aids those devastated by the war.
