Israel is facing a crisis scenario on a scale never before seen. On October 7, one of the darkest days in modern Israeli history, 22 communities were infiltrated by Hamas terrorists, leaving thousands injured, 1,200 murdered, and 240 abducted to Gaza, including babies, the elderly, and entire families.
Since day one, St. Paul Jewish Federation has been in constant communication with our partners on the ground to understand the immediate needs. We're mobilizing the entirety of our nonprofit network and donor community to provide help — immediately and strategically, with full compassion and broken hearts.
We are deeply grateful to announce that an anonymous donor in our community has generously contributed a matching gift of $500,000 to the St. Paul Jewish Federation Israel Emergency Fund. Every dollar you donate will be matched, doubling the impact, and distributed immediately to our esteemed partner agencies in Israel.
This is a moment where Israel needs our support more than it has in decades. Please give to our Israel Emergency Fund and stand with the people of Israel. Am Yisrael Chai.
