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.

Life-Long Learning Committee Presents “Jews Around the World” Film Series: “Mr. Kaplan”, Sun. Jun. 23rd at 7 P.M.

Having escaped Nazi Europe, Jacob Kaplan has led a quiet life in Uruguay. Now, at the age of 76, he begins to question his life’s worth as his family grows increasingly concerned that he is losing his facilities. When he begins to suspect that an elderly German immigrant is a former Nazi, he becomes determined to expose him and bring him to justice. This wry comedy-drama, Uruguay’s official entry to the 2015 Academy Awards for Best Foreign-Language Film, touches on themes of family, aging and the need to find meaning in our lives.
