Where can I donate money?

In times of turmoil it is especially important to ensure that donations are being handled properly and through trusted sources. To that end, Jewish Federation of New Hampshire recommends sending all monetary donations through Jewish Federations of North America's Emergency Fund: https://jfeds.org/israelfund2023.

100% of donations go directly to Israel.
