As of right now, Israel has witnessed more than 24 hours of relative calm. The result is a growing sense of cautious relief throughout the country. With this long-awaited moment of respite, we are reminded that after an anxiety-ridden four weeks, there is still more work to be done.
 
This violence hits particularly close to home as our Federation just led a mission trip to Israel this past March, visiting some of the places currently under attack: Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Zichron Ya'akov specifically. The monies raised through our Annual Campaign help to fund JFNA and other partner agencies, like The Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee - agencies that are on the ground in Israel, poised to mobilize at a moment's notice. These agencies are working to provide relief to the victims of this violence.

Working in collaboration with Federations across North America, and our parent organization, JFNA, the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey stands with Israel. We can't silence the sirens. But we can try and soften their impact on the lives of the children and families living under their blare.
