We Stand with Israel


#SupportIsrael

The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston has established a Support for Israel Fund following multi-front attacks on Israel during Shabbat and the Sukkot/Simchat Torah holiday. They are in close contact with overseas partners, and anticipate an unprecedented need to assist victims of terror and their families. Now, more than ever, they need your support. Israel will prevail and the Jewish people will stand together as we always do. Am Yisrael Chai. 100% of the funds will be distributed to support victims of terror for:

Basic Needs: Food and financial assistance for impacted families  
Housing: Support for communities under fire and for new olim  
Support for Victims of Terror: Immediate cash grants for post-trauma care  
Support for Soldiers: Supplies and medical care 
Emergency Medical Services: Supplies and equipment for first responders and hospitals   
Accurate Media Reporting: Combat prejudice and anti-Israel bias in the media 
Trauma Relief and Psychological Care: Wide-scale support for those struggling to cope  

If you would like to support the fund through your donor-advised fund, please contact your fund administrator or learn more through hjcf.org. If you have any issues with their website please call 713-729-7000.
