Since October 7, Israel has been at war. An unprecedented, ruthless, and devastating attack by Hamas exacted too high of a cost already. Too many have been killed, thousands injured, and some were taken hostage by the terrorists. Israel is resilient and resolute. People are fighting for their country, and Jews around the world are supporting these efforts from afar with prayers, messages, and resources as they are able.
The time to help Israel is now! Our synagogue is joining a collaborative effort with others to send much-needed aid to Israel. Please donate to join us.
Thankfully, there are many wonderful organizations also gathering resources and mobilizing to help Israel. If you would rather send help through them, here are the organizations we and our Israeli friends recommend supporting the most.
Friends of the IDF: https://www.fidf.org/
United Hatzalah: https://israelrescue.org/
Magen David Adom: https://www.mdais.org/en
One Family Together: https://onefamilytogether.org/
And in a world polluted with disinformation, agendas, and propaganda, if you want to stay informed about what is going on in Israel, we can recommend these free sources. We find them to be honest, accurate, and objective.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. May peace be within your walls And prosperity within your palaces.” For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, “May peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.(Psalm 122:6-9)
Thank you for standing with Israel, for the support, and for your prayers!
