The New Israel Fund is shocked and horrified by this attack on Israel.
We stand in support and solidarity with the people of Israel on this dark and difficult day. We pray for all those who have been affected by this terrible attack, and for a swift end to this violence. We and our grantees will continue to work for peace, to calm tensions between Israel’s communities, and to support the most vulnerable people in Israel at this moment of crisis.
NIF globally is already preparing to provide emergency support to our grantee organisations and community groups on the frontlines working to help those in need at this moment, to reinforce solidarity between Jews and Arabs in Israel, and to counter any kind of extremism, racism, or inter-communal violence.
Our Be’er Sheva office in the south of Israel is hard at work, even as the violence continues, to support those civil society organisations shining a light during this dark time.
We at NIF are a global community and we will work to get through this terrible situation together.
