Supporting Israel

During the holiday of Shmini Atzeret, 50 years after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Hamas terrorists launched an unprecedented attack on Israel from Gaza, firing thousands of rockets, breaching the country’s borders, killing over a thousand Israelis, wounding thousands, and kidnapping over a hundred civilians and soldiers. The IDF has launched Operation Swords of Iron, to confront Iranian-backed terrorism and protect Israel. Temple Beth Sholom unequivocally stands with the people and land of Israel. There are several ways we ask you to support Israel during this tragic time:   1) Support Israel with your financial resources. We are highlighting the following organizations:   *Fund for Victims of Terror (supported by the Jewish Federations of North America): the first responder in the recovery process of families and individuals who have been impacted by acts of terror and violence, providing immediate grants within 48 hours to those in need.   *Magen David Adom: to put more ambulances on the road and to replenish supplies for paramedics   *Soroka Medical Center: Hundreds wounded Israelis have come to Soroka Medical Center for life-saving treatment and are in need of more supplies and equipment. *Stand With Us Israel Emergency Fund: Donations made on this page will help send meals and badly-needed supplies to Israeli army bases. We need to let them know we care and appreciate them. *Friends of the IDF: Friends of the IDF is the sole organization authorized to collect charitable donations on behalf of the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces across the United States of America. FIDF is responding to their most urgent needs for humanitarian support which currently include armored ambulances, field hospitals, plasma, and other life-saving supplies.   2) Support Israel by educating yourself and others as to what is occurring.
