The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), partnering with the Union for Reform Judaism and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, is leading an emergency effort to raise and distribute $30 million in cash to address the urgent and immediate needs posed by the barrage of rocket attacks on Israel. All of the money will be passed directly through to help Israelis on the ground.

The Jewish Federation of Madison has been asked to help raise $33,904 as soon as possible. At this time we are only $1,190 shy of our fundraising goal. Please consider contributing if you have not yet. If you have already given, please consider increasing you gift. This money will not guarentee peace in Israel; it will not bring back lives that have been tragically lost. However it will dramatically improve the much needed social support the people of Israel require during this time of crisis.

Please donate and help us achieve this goal >
