ISRAEL UNDER FIRE

We can't stop them. But we can try to limit their impact on the lives of the children and families living in their path.
 
Hamas' upgraded military capabilities put the vast majority of Israel's population within range of rocket fire.
 
BUT ALL OF ISRAEL IS WITHIN REACH OF OUR SUPPORT.
 
Tuesday night thousands of children were read bedtime stories in bomb shelters. With your help, we can take them out of harm's way for a day of normal play.
 
Wednesday, a family in Netivot emerged from their home bomb shelter - only to find that their house was destroyed. Federation funds provide this family, and thousands of victims of terror like them, with the funds and support to begin rebuilding.
 
And this morning, the 15 second warning siren that rang out in Be'er Sheva, was not long enough for a 70-year old wheelchair bound resident to make it to a shelter. So, for now, she must live in one. Federation partner programs are her sole lifeline to food, medicine and human contact.
 
In times of hostility or need, in virtually every town in Israel, every day, you will find a Federation partner at work. Helping those who need it the most. Making sure no one is missed.
