Message from the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR):

We Pray for Israel

With Israel under attack, we stand in solidarity with our Israeli colleagues and all Israelis. We are heartbroken and horrified by these attacks by Hamas, on Shabbat and Simchat Torah no less, a time dedicated to renewal and joy. We mourn the lives lost, and we pray for healing of the wounded. We pray too for those defending Israel and for the safe redemption of the captured. May an end to the violence and bloodshed come quickly.

May the One who makes peace in the high heavens make peace for us and all Israel.

Many of you have asked where to send donations. The Reform movement is joining with Jewish Federations of America to promote a single campaign.
