After more than a week of battling an unprecedented 480 fires that have raged across Israel, there is much rebuilding work to be done.
Nearly 100,000 people have been displaced and thousands of acres of land have been ravaged. People must now return to their damaged homes, schools and neighborhoods. Thousands have no homes to return to. Many community institutions that provide vital programs and services - including Federation partner programs - have been hit hard. They are struggling to rebuild just when they are needed most.
Federation supported partner agencies, Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), have been on the ground from the beginning providing much-needed relief and support.
During this time of need, Federations across North America are collecting funds to assist those affected by the fire and to help with the rebuilding effort through the Israel Fire Emergency Fund.
