Yesterday Israel instituted a unilateral humanitarian ceasefire at the request of the United Nations, only to be met with immediate rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza the moment the ceasefire ended. In response to this resumption of attacks by Hamas and other terrorist organizations, Israeli soldiers have now entered the Gaza Strip in an attempt to destroy terrorist stockpiles of weapons and the tunnels that these groups use to infiltrate Israel with the intention of kidnapping or murdering Israeli civilians.
At times like these it can be easy to feel helpless, but the reality is that we do have options when it comes to showing our support for Israel. One important action we can take is to participate in the Jewish Federations of North America emergency fundraising campaign for Israel.
Each federation across the country had been asked to participate and send what we can, including the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire. By joining with other Jewish communities across North America in this effort, we are not only providing badly needed financial support, but sending a powerful message to the people of Israel that they are not alone as the rockets fall and the sirens wail from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.
We are very grateful to everyone who has stepped up and made a contribution to this important cause, and hope that if you have not already made a donation that you will do so today. Any amount will be greatly appreciated and every dollar will make a difference to the families whose lives have been seriously disrupted in this latest terrorist onslaught.
If you would like contribute to this important cause please send checks directly to the JFNH office with a note indicating that it is intended for the emergency campaign for Israel. We are also happy to take credit card donations by phone: (603) 627-7679.
Daniel Cohen, President
