Bring Them Home

The Milwaukee Jewish Federation unequivocally demands the safe return of all people who have been taken hostage by Hamas, recognized as a terrorist group by the United States, the European Union and others.

Looking for way to help? Here’s a few thing you can do to support the hostages and their families.

  • Do not let others forget — spread the message by sharing MJF’s social posts about hostages.
  • Support the Israel Emergency Fund, which includes allocations to the Fund for Victims of Terror.

Fund for Victims of Terror

The Fund for Victims of Terror, established by our partners at the Jewish Agency for Israel, is often the first non-medical responder for families and individuals who have been impacted by acts of terror and violence, providing immediate grants to rebuild homes damaged by rocket fire, and providing for long-term rehabilitation and post-trauma care.  They are already estimating the need for significant additional funding given the scope of this current crisis and war.
