The Jewish Agency for Israel: Fund for the Victims of Terror

The Fund for the Victims of Terror provides Israel’s terror victims with direct, immediate financial assistance after an attack.

After a terror attack, victims and their families often need funds quickly to rebuild what they have lost. The Jewish Agency For Israel helps them fast, providing immediate, direct assistance so that they can start the process of healing – often within 24 hours. The Fund has helped hundreds of Israeli families. Please join us in providing comfort for those whose lives are suddenly overturned by trauma. With your help we can ease their recovery and help them move on.
