What can you do to help Israel?

The people of Israel are currently experiencing a terrible reality, marked by unbearable tragedy and uncertainty. Our hearts are filled with hurt and worry and we know you are eager to step up and assist because that is what we do at The Jewish Federation. 


Here are ways you can get involved:

  • Seeking Medical Professionals to Volunteer

    • We are mobilizing physicians, mental health professionals, nurses, nurse practitioners, and others who can volunteer their services to the victims of the Israeli tragedy via telemedicine and tele-mental health technologies. The goal is to offload the Israeli healthcare system that is already impacted by an upsurge of medical and mental health needs of the Israeli population. Sign Up Here to get involved in American Telemedicine and Tele-mental Health Initiative for Israel. 

    • The Israeli Ministry of Health is building a list of medical personnel from abroad to volunteer in Israel should the need arise. We invite friends of Israel to add their names to our growing community of medical personnel who stand with Israel. Doctors, nurses, and paramedics licensed abroad can join Medical Volunteers for Israel using the Ministry of Health’s online form, to ensure pre-clearance of medical licenses.  Sign Up Here

    •  If there are further strains on the healthcare system, Nefesh B’Nefesh, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, will activate bringing people to Israel. They are actively collecting names of doctors who would be willing to volunteer should the need arise.  Sign Up Here 

    • Israel’s National Insurance Institute (the equivalent of America’s Social Security Administration) has announced that it will provide insurance for Israeli ex-pat volunteers who wish to volunteer. At present, there are only very limited opportunities open to foreign volunteers. JFNA’s Israel office is currently working to identify potential placements and will update if there are meaningful ways to contribute for those who wish to come help. 


  • Elevate Awareness of Hostage Situation 

Spread awareness about the many civilian hostages, among them women, children, and elderly, who were abducted from their homes. Here is a list of names as well as downloadable flyers to distribute. 


  • Say Kaddish 

This week, as the atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists against innocent Israelis mount, our hearts are heavy, as we mourn too many lives lost. Nearly 1,300 people have been murdered and we estimate the numbers will rise. We invite you to adopt one person from this list to say Kaddish for them so that their memory may be a blessing.

  • Thank Elected Leaders 

Take a moment to thank our elected leaders who have stood with the Jewish community and with Israel during this crisis is imperative.  Let them know how grateful we are of their support: 

“Thank you to for unequivocal support of Israel, and for denouncing the terrorist organization, Hamas' brutal, barbaric, and unprovoked attack. Your leadership and solidarity with Israel and the Jewish community is noticed and appreciated.” · Elected Officials Who Have Spoken Out for Israel
