Emergency Response: Israel & Gaza

Many fundholders have reached out seeking guidance on effective ways to give in response to the crisis in Israel and Gaza. Below are organizations doing important work to help.

We are available to talk with fundholders about the response at any time. Please contact Aaron or Vi at (973) 267-5533.

Donate to Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ

The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ has launched the Emergency Fund for Israel to provide immediate support to partners on the ground in Israel to assist victims of terror, help rebuild damaged infrastructure, and address the unprecedented levels of trauma caused by these horrific attacks and the war. In addition, targeted funding from the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest is being used to support partner communities in the South of Israel, including Ofakim and Kibbutz Erez, most impacted by the terror attacks.

Donate to American Friends of Magen David Adom

American Friends of Magen David Adom is the authorized fundraising and advocacy organization in the United States supporting the lifesaving efforts of MDA in Israel to conduct rescue operations, deploy emergency health workers, as well as rescue units and ambulances.

Donate to World Central Kitchen

World Central Kitchen is a non-governmental, non-political organization committed to providing meals to people in need, regardless of nationality or ethnicity. They are currently positioning teams to provide meals to anyone affected by the escalated violence — in Israel, Gaza, and neighboring countries should there be a flow of refugees. WCK is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. Your donation will be used to support their emergency food relief efforts.

Donate to Doctors Without Borders

As an independent and impartial humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders delivers emergency medical care where the needs for their expertise are greatest—regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or politics. Doctors Without Borders does not currently run medical programs in Israel, but they have offered support to Israeli hospitals treating a high number of casualties. Doctors Without Borders teams are working in Gaza and the West Bank, as they have for 20 years, providing medical care and supporting a health system that urgently lacks both medical personnel and supplies.
