JFN Stands with Israel

Israel has been invaded in a coordinated attack by Hamas terrorists. The losses are devastating, and Israel is now embarked in a full-scale war, trying to bring back calm and reestablish deterrence against terror.

The magnitude of the losses in life and property are still not fully quantified, but we already know they are staggering and unprecedented. The human stories of the killed and the kidnapped are simply impossible to hear.

JFN, its leadership, staff, and membership are united in standing together with Israel and in praying for the victims, their families, and the men and women of the IDF as they fight to defend our shared homeland.

As we’ve done in similar crises, JFN is in contact with our partner in Israel's civil society, government and army to identify needs and opportunities for funders to help. While there are immediate needs, there will be many – and probably bigger – needs in the days to come.

We are actively compiling a list of trusted agencies and nonprofits supported by our members both in Israel and the US. Besides the obvious (that the organization is legitimate, effective, and properly managed), we use four basic criteria to include an organization in our list:

1. One is technical, that the organization has a way of receiving tax deductible dollars.
2. The second has to do with critical mass. There are literally thousands of low scale efforts and small organizations that serve a handful of people. While most do amazing work, we believe that at this stage of the crisis one has to focus on organizations that can deal with a high volume of cases.
3. We include organizations that have direct and specific programs related to the crisis. Each of Israel's 40,000 nonprofits is affected, but we’re prioritizing those that have a direct impact on needs related to the war.
4. We include organizations that are part of, or coordinated with, a larger effort that includes the relevant governmental bodies. For example, the kibbutzim funds that we include work in coordination with a recently formed governmental reconstruction committee.
.
Our list is evolving and changing almost daily. JFN members are invited to share their responses to the crisis and resources they find valuable by writing to [email protected].
.

Praying for peace and strength for the People of Israel.
