Jews in the United States ask Congress to allocate $14 billion to Israel for the purchase of air defense

After Iran's attack on Israel Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) appealed to the US House of Representatives to immediately pass an additional aid package to Israel, including the allocation of $14 billion to finance the Iron Dome, David's Sling and Arrow-3 air defense systems.

The proposed package includes additional grants for non-profit organizations (NPOs) to provide security. Such funding will enable Jewish communities to protect themselves from the rising tide of anti-Semitic violence.

Thanks to JFNA's efforts, the Senate has already passed an additional relief package that includes $400 million for a grant program for faith communities and nonprofit organizations. However, it is now necessary for the House of Representatives to follow suit.

On the JFNA website Members of all Jewish federations and communities in the United States can send a message to their representatives in Congress emphasizing the importance of this funding for the safety of Jewish and other communities.

The Jewish Federations of North America are also continuing an emergency fundraising campaign for aid to Israel initiated following the Hamas attack on October 7, 2023. According to the latest data, more than $806 million has already been raised. Of this, $410 million has been aimed at meeting the most pressing needs and donated by almost 300 partner organizations and NGOs.

These organizations include the Jewish Agency for Israel (Sokhnut), the Joint, World ORT, as well as other non-profit organizations in Israel, in particular ReGrow, Project Horizon, Magen David Adom, Israel Trauma Coalition and Brothers and Sisters for Israel.
