Jewish National Fund: Helping families affected by arson fires in Israel

As of this week

Hamas arson attacks in numbers:
 7413 acres of land burned  
1,364 fires caused by incendiary devices
10-12 million NIS worth of damage by arson attacks 
1,832 people have been treated for trauma.

These numbers increase each day.

Do you want to help?   The Jewish National Fund is leading a series of nationwide town hall events to learn more about the crisis, and about how the diaspora  community  can help.

As of now, there is nothing scheduled locally- we will let you know if that changes.

Fromm August 19 through August 30, the  Jewish National Fund invites you to learn the truth about the Gaza Border Crisis. In a series of town hall meetings across the country, you can hear first-hand from a mother, a young pioneer, and a farmer - residents of the Gaza border communities - who will share their personal stories of living under attack.
