Emergency Appeal for the People of Israel Emergency Appeal for the People of Israel


October 7th, 2023, was the deadliest day for the Jewish people since the Holocaust.


Following Hamas’ unprecedented invasion, more than 1,300 Israelis have been murdered. More than 3,000 have been wounded. And more than 100 Israelis – including mothers and fathers, young women, children, and fragile seniors – have been abducted and are being held hostage in Gaza. The Gaza border communities lie in ruins and the entire country is now threatened by missiles and other attacks.


When Israelis are in danger, it is our call-to-action to help.


UJA has launched an Emergency Appeal for the People of Israel to raise funds to help Israelis in their moment of need. For many years, UJA has been working with a range of on-the-ground organizations – including in our partner community of Sderot on the Gaza border – to strengthen resilience and aid victims of terror. In this rapidly evolving situation, we are identifying where dollars can make the greatest impact and coordinating our trusted, longstanding partners to ensure funding flows to those who most need it.


Your gift to UJA’s Emergency Appeal will fund emergency grants to victims of terrorism, trauma mental health services, resilience workers caring for the vulnerable amid rocket fire and other threats, and the work of our core partners in Sderot, the Jewish Agency for Israel, and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee who are at the forefront of this crisis.


Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $18 and above. The tax receipt for this donation will be sent to the email address you provide. The address you used in your contact details must match your credit card’s billing address. The Canada Revenue Agency requires that donation receipts bear the name and address of the actual donor.
