Thank our elected officials for supporting Israel.

House Resolution 657 and Senate Resolution 498 passed unanimously, reaffirming U.S. bipartisan support for Israel’s right to defend itself and calling on Hamas to cease its rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. Please call or email our elected officials and thank them for their support of Israel’s right to self-defense and for their support of funding for the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Share a personal story.

As Israel’s conflict with Hamas continues, we at the Milwaukee Jewish Federation are sharing personal accounts from people with direct ties to loved ones who are affected or from people in Israel. This conflict is about human beings, and we need to hear real stories about real people enduring this real conflict. So,

  • if you have a loved one in Israel; or
  • if you have changed your travel plans because of the conflict; or
  • if you know people in Israel who have a Milwaukee connection,

please consider sharing–or asking others to share–a personal reflection. We will post text, video and photos on our webpage. Share a story now.
