Stop the Sirens - Support Israel
Since June 30 more than 700 rockets were fired from Gaza over the Israeli population. Now, over 6 million Israeli citizens, 75% of the Israeli population, are under Hamas's rockets' fire range. The quantity and range of the rockets is staggering. There is a constant barrage - and there is little relief, especially in the South, where no one is supposed to be more than 15 seconds from a bomb shelter. According to Israeli government sources, this conflict is expected to last at least several weeks.
No one in Israel has any semblance of a normal life. Many children and families are traumatized.
This is unacceptable. The Jewish Federation is compelled to take action at this critical time. Join with us in standing with our family in Israel.
Our Jewish Federation is partnering with the Jewish Federations of North America to raise million in critically needed funds for humanitarian needs through an Israel Emergency Fund, which will help the men, women - and especially children - of Israel to live their day-to-day lives as securely as possible. The Portland Jewish community has been asked to raise ,500 of that total.
