Support Israel

We at Temple Tikvah stand in solidarity with the State of Israel and all of its residents. We grieve with our friends and family the thousands of lives lost.  We pray for healing of the wounded. We pray for those defending Israel and for the safe redemption of the captured. May an end to the violence and bloodshed come quickly.

Below is a list of organizations that you may wish to support to help relieve the suffering of those directly impacted by the war.  This list is by no means all-inclusive---there are many other organizations also doing important work in the region.   I encourage you to support those that best fit your values.  As time goes on, and the needs in Israel shift, we will update this list.  Feel free to reach out to me with suggestions of other organizations to include.  


עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵינוּ וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאּל 
 
May the One who makes peace in the high heavens make peace for us and all Israel.
