The name of our campaign is Tikvatenu, which translates into “From Heartbreak to Hope.” We are hopeful, and we are calling on all of you to help those in need in Israel.
To date, we have raised $11.3 million, surpassing our original goal of $10 million. We knew that the love for Israel and the urgent humanitarian needs would resonate, but the speed with which so many have answered the call is truly gratifying.
But the need continues to grow and we will continue to raise money to provide critical financial support for the victims, families of hostages, soldiers, and every Israeli who needs our support and to know that America stands with them against terrorism.
While our efforts have already made great strides, the people of Israel need our continued support.
We know that there is an overwhelming amount of information circulating in news outlets and the internet. That’s why we rely on The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) for accurate and timely information.
