“Evil can only prevail if good people sit idly by.”
—Governor Gavin Newsom
A new week has begun, but the horrors continue to unfold. Hamas’ genocidal actions have reminded us what true evil looks like. Approximately 1,400 Israelis have been murdered and almost 200 Israelis were kidnapped and are being held in captivity, as loved ones beg for their return. We are sadly witnessing mass suffering and loss of innocent lives throughout the region. We will not sit idly by.
Join Us in Action
JFCS is working closely with our sister agencies in Israel to provide direct humanitarian assistance including emergency food, shelter, and psychological first aid. More aid is urgently needed: children, families, and the elderly are displaced, traumatized, and alone.
Please join us with a gift to JFCS’ Israel Emergency Fund. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go to provide direct help to those in crisis.
You Are Not Alone
If you or someone you care about could benefit from trauma support or emergency counseling, please call JFCS’ Bay Area Critical Helpline at 415‑449‑3700. We are here for you.
We stand united, and we work and pray for peace.
