Tikkun Olam Initiative

For the duration of the war in Gaza, Tikkun Olam will be dedicated to the people of Israel. The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston has opened a fund to meet the immediate and ongoing needs on the ground. Visit https://www.houstonjewish.org/support-for-israel/ to donate now.

The Federation is in close contact with their overseas partners, and anticipate an unprecedented need to assist victims of terror and their families.

100% of the funds will be distributed to support victims of terror for:

  •    Basic Needs: Food and financial assistance for impacted families, the elderly, and the homebound.  
  •   Evacuation, Housing, Respite, and Support for Frontline Communities: Including support for communities under fire and for new    olim (immigrants to Israel) living in absorption centers.
  •   Funds for Victims of Terror: Providing immediate cash grants to families and individuals who have been impacted by acts of terror and violence, for post-trauma care, etc.
  •  Trauma Relief and Psychosocial Care: To support wide-scale trauma relief and psychosocial support.
  •  Emergency Medical Services and Healthcare: Medical supplies and equipment for first responders and hospitals in close proximity to the front line.
  •   Special Populations: Targeted assistance to vulnerable populations and their caregivers.
  •   Local Efforts and Volunteers: Israel’s home front has mobilized and funding is needed to enhance capacity and provide operational support to evacuees, special populations, frontline communities, and those responding to the crisis.

For any questions, please contact Shlomit Alon, Event Coordinator.
