Community-specific rehabilitation: $4,400,000

Project Horizon: $3,000,000*
Grant approved by task force on 1/23/2024
Fiscal sponsor: United Jewish Appeal Federation of New York

About Project Horizon
Following the successful collaboration of CJP and the Business Alliance on the Kibbutz Re’im community relocation project as proof of concept, CJP is again partnering with this social entrepreneurial volunteer group of Israeli business leaders to replicate the Kibbutz Re’im philanthropic funding model. The overarching goal of Project Horizon is to keep communities relocated together over the next 12–18 months (in safer parts of Israel) while their home communities are permanently rebuilt by the Israeli government so they can move back home.

Why CJP gave
There are still more than 100,000 displaced Israelis from the South who need immediate humanitarian support. Included in that figure are 10,000 evacuees from Tier 1 intensive need communities identified by the Israeli government as the most deeply impacted: Be'eri, Nir Oz, Kfar Aza, Netiv Ha’hasara, Nirim, Kissufim, Nahal Oz, and Holit. For all eight Tier 1 communities, CJP’s grant will fund interim housing costs related to full group relocation, mental health support, community resilience social services, informal educational programs, and employment solutions all tailored for the critical recovery period ahead.

Kibbutz Re’im: $1,000,000*
Grant approved by task force on 10/31/2023
Fiscal sponsor: IsraAID (U.S.) Global Humanitarian Assistance

About Kibbutz Re’im
Kibbutz Re’im in Southern Israel was the site of the music festival that was the primary target of the Hamas attack on October 7. The residents of Kibbutz Re’im displayed immense courage, resisting Hamas militants for more than seven hours until reinforcements arrived. The 430 surviving kibbutz members temporarily relocated to a hotel in Eilat, with nothing but the clothes they wore.

Why CJP gave
Money from CJP’s Israel Emergency Fund will provide temporary housing in Tel Aviv for all 430 kibbutz members, along with essential items (such as clothing and furniture), and a communal space in Tel Aviv for Re’im residents to gather for activities. CJP’s grant will also provide much-needed psychological support for survivors of the attack, support for Re’im children as they integrate into Tel Aviv schools, and money to help create a kibbutz business recovery plan. CJP is the first federation to pilot offering kibbutz-specific aid and will report back to Jewish Federations of North America with learning from the grant.

The Upper Galilee Regional Council: Manara-Gadot Project: $300,000*
Grant approved by task force on 3/26/2024

About The Upper Galilee Regional Council
The Upper Galilee Regional Council serves 22,000 residents from 29 kibbutzim in the North. It is continuing to provide municipal services to residents who remained and to residents who evacuated, in addition to soldiers now stationed in the area during the active war in the Northern Front. Kibbutz Manara is a particularly vulnerable community of 300 residents where, since October 8, more than 70% of its infrastructure has been decimated by missile attacks from Hezbollah in Lebanon and residents dispersed in evacuee hotels. Kibbutz Gadot, in a safer part of the North, has decided to absorb as many residents of Kibbutz Manara as possible and needs funding for lifeline services for the 120 members who have decided to move there together while waiting for their home to be safe again.

Why CJP gave
CJP strongly believes that funding community relocation projects that keep communities temporarily together while they wait for safe returns home is in the best interest of those community members and their chance at resiliency. Like CJP’s funding of the Kibbutz Re’im Pilot Project, and additional funding of Project Horizon, funding from this community rehabilitation grant will open kindergartens, provide temporary housing, and infuse Kibbutz Gadot with the funds they need to create social resiliency projects for its new residents from Kibbutz Manara until their home is safe to live in again.

Grant approved by task force on 5/13/2024

About Homeward (Habaita)
Homeward (Habaita) is an organization formed by social entrepreneurs as a result of October 7. After extensively surveying displaced families on their most prioritized reasons for returning to their original communities after war, access to excellent education rose as a determinant factor in their calculations. Homeward is seeking to accelerate and leverage improvements to Israel’s education system as a tool to facilitate the return of displaced people to their home communities.

Why CJP gave
CJP’s grant will help fund a summer school program for 12,500 students in grades four through 12 that will take place this summer in the Western Negev. The program will run in July and August and, in turn, help to bring families back to the region so their children can re-enroll in school for the 2024–2025 academic year. This is an important effort to help facilitate the return home for these families, build resiliency, and reunite children and teens with their friends, teachers, schools, and communities for the first time since October 7.

Educating for Excellence (E4E): $50,000*
Grant approved by task force on 11/21/2023

About E4E
Educating for Excellence (E4E) strives to strengthen Israeli society by reducing socioeconomic disparity, promoting equality, and creating social mobility for talented youth with potential from underserved communities across Israel. Through after-school programs and a graduate network, E4E invests in the 1 million Israeli children currently living in poverty. The organization helps children and young adults between the ages of 8 and 28 channel their talents and become involved and engaged citizens in Israeli society.

Why CJP gave
Since the onset of the war, E4E officials have met with thousands of Jewish and Arab youth in marginalized locations and from at-risk families to assess their immediate needs and identify solutions. Schools lacking bomb shelters are closed and parents have either been called up for military service or are working longer hours, leaving kids alone for long periods of time. Despite being short-staffed, with more than 100 personnel called up for service (including the CEO), E4E quickly opened new Educational Excellence Program Centers to provide youth with access to social workers and mental health support, trauma counseling for staff and parents, and online programming for kids who are homebound due to constant rocket attacks.

Dualis: $25,000*
Grant approved by task force on 11/21/2023

About Dualis
Dualis is a nonprofit that has existed for more than a decade in the field of employment.

Economic relief: $2,500,000

JFNA’s Emergency Loan Fund: $2,000,000
Grant approved by task force on 2/8/2024

About JFNA's Emergency Loan Fund
JFNA’s Emergency Loan Fund is a centralized fund for platforms that originate loans to support small business survival needs across Israel. The Emergency Loan Fund allocates capital to a set of established and professionally run loan platforms (most nonprofit, and some for profit but operating nonprofit models in response to the crisis). In addition to allocating capital to individual lending platform entities, the loan fund is using its collective scale to drive support from key financial institutions in the country. These include Israel's major banks, credit card companies, and insurance companies, which are institutions that can potentially provide up to 4–5x leverage for the equity of the Loan Fund. As such, the $100 million of equity — the target investment goal for this Loan Fund — could result in available loan capital on the order of $500 million.

Why CJP gave
In addition to the clear and immediate security, health, safety and social service needs in Israel, there is a tremendous secondary economic crisis that is increasingly facing the country. The impact is most obvious for businesses located in the Gaza border region invaded on October 7 and along the northern confrontation line, but the effect is felt across the country for micro, small, and medium-sized businesses, which are particularly at risk given their limited access to liquid capital and the huge disruption in the normal flow of business. It is estimated that tens of thousands of small businesses will need access to loans now and over the next two years, and JFNA’s Emergency Loan Fund is the critical connection between the philanthropic and private sectors to work together to create an economic relief platform on the scale of at least hundreds of millions of dollars that can reach a meaningful percentage of at-risk businesses.

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI): $500,000
Grant approved by task force on 11/21/2023

About JAFI
Since 1929, the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) has been working for a secure, diverse, and thriving Jewish people. JAFI provides the global framework for aliyah to Israel, ensures global Jewish safety, strengthens Jewish identity, and connects Jews to Israel and one another.

Why CJP gave
Throughout Israel, owners of small businesses have been deeply impacted by the war. Some have had to close their businesses because all their employees have been called into military service, others have had to evacuate their production facilities, and some are mourning the loss of loved ones. There are also thousands of small businesses near the Gaza border that have either been destroyed, evacuated, or are existing under constant rocket fire.

CJP’s grant to JAFI will be split between two programs, with each receiving $250,000: Small Business Emergency Grants and SparkIL.

Small Business Emergency Grants are providing aid for businesses in Israel’s south, including emergency grants for small businesses and mentorship for small business leaders. Most small business owners generally live from paycheck to paycheck, and many are in Israel’s socioeconomic and geographic periphery. This grant will provide immediate and needed support to many business owners.

SparkIL is facilitating interest-free loans to small businesses in Israel. SparkIL has launched an emergency relief loan fund to support Israeli small businesses from all over the country that are affected by the war. Already, SparkIL is helping approximately 130 businesses. Since opening the application process for the emergency fund, SparkIL has received hundreds of requests from business owners with difficult stories. This grant will help sustain the fund to, in turn, help more businesses that are suffering from the loss of revenue due to the war.

Volunteer mobilization: $1,350,000

Civil Emergency Headquarters: $250,000*
Grant approved by task force on 10/19/2023

About Civil Emergency Headquarters
From horror and devastation, Civil Emergency Headquarters has emerged as the largest volunteer organization in Israel. It’s responding to needs from residents and soldiers by connecting them with volunteers and organizations that can help.

Why CJP gave
Since October 7, Civil Emergency Headquarters (an organization entirely run and led by volunteers) has evacuated hundreds of residents from the conflict area, connected thousands of families with suitable hosts, and collected and distributed thousands of boxes of basic supplies and food for IDF soldiers and displaced residents. Also, the organization has assisted the residents of Southern Israel, transported hundreds of residents to their destinations, provided support and assistance to bereaved families, and, most importantly, consolidated all initiatives under one roof.  

HaShomer HaChadash: $250,000*
Grant approved by task force on 3/15/2024

About HaShomer HaChadash
HaShomer HaChadash connects volunteers with opportunities to work directly on Israel’s farms, thereby supporting Israeli farmers and agriculture. The organization mobilizes 120,000+ volunteers every year to facilitate volunteerism that creates a sense of mutual responsibility for Israel’s farming sector, a core value of Israel’s society.

Why CJP gave
Since October 7, HaShomer HaChadash has been working to meet the labor shortage challenges that Israeli farmers are facing through its Food Rescue Operation project. Produce that is not harvested rots and, at scale, can have a significant impact on food security in Israel. HaShomer HaChadash has created a volunteer mobilization system to allow every farmer who needs manpower on their farms and every volunteer who can assist to get to the field to help harvest crops. This grant is especially timely in its anticipation of the spring 2024 agriculture harvest; in non-war times, labor needs are met through seasonal foreign employment and Arab employees, both of which will take years to bring back to pre-war levels. Therefore, farmers of Israel will need to rely on volunteers to meet the needs of the upcoming harvest season and CJP’s grant will support the operation of this mobilization.

ICON: $250,000*

Grant approved by task force on 2/27/2024

About Code for Israel
Code for Israel is an Israeli NGO established in 2021 that employs five individuals; it is also comprised of a vast network of volunteers from across the Israeli technology sector. Over 1,200 volunteers ranging from product developers, software engineers, data specialists, high tech professionals, and various entrepreneurs have been engaged by Code for Israel since its founding.

Why CJP gave
In response to the crisis, Code for Israel immediately shifted its operation and activated upwards of 400 volunteer coders to help Israeli nonprofits responding to the crisis through “First Aid Projects” that allowed nonprofits to scale up their technical infrastructure to deliver their emergency or high priority services to their constituencies. This includes rapid-builds of CRMs, forms, hotline setups to support people in crisis, automated online scheduling systems for direct-to-evacuees services, app & fundraising platform builds, and other innovative volunteer matching solutions. CJP’s funding will support an additional 30 projects tackling the next phase of rehabilitation and rebuild by the Israeli NGO community.

Latet Youth Program: $150,000*
Grant approved by task force on 5/28/2024

About Latet Youth Program
Latet is an established food security NGO operating across Israel’s peripheral neighborhoods. Six years ago, taking the learnings from the neighborhoods and communities they support in the food supply space, they launched a volunteer peer group model to empower youth in these vulnerable communities to be active volunteers in their communities, and to grow their leadership and resiliency skills through participation in informal education programming. Latet Youth is prioritizing their operations in communities where shared society is essential and the socioeconomic gap is most present. Latet Youth's impact resonates across the country with hundreds of groups spanning diverse cultures and religions including Jewish, Druze, Arab, Bedouin, and more, united by a common purpose and values.

Why CJP gave
Since the beginning of the war, Latet’s teen volunteers have taken an active part in building the resilience of the citizens through a large scope of activities including offering educational, emotional, and social support to evacuated children and taking part in collecting and distributing thousands of basic supplies for populations in need. Latet has shared that the war has exacerbated their need to form youth groups in the North and execute many additional community projects; CJP’s grant will fund ten youth groups for a full year in the North. 

Israeli American Council (IAC): $50,000
Grant approved by task force on 10/10/2023

About IAC
The IAC works to build an engaged and united Israeli American community that strengthens the Israeli and Jewish identity of our next generation, the American Jewish community, and the bond between the people of the United States and the State of Israel.

Why CJP gave
IAC New England is mobilizing hundreds of volunteers to donate, pack, and sort supplies, such as clothing, toiletries, and medical items needed by both Israeli military members and civilians. Some of the items are being brought to Israel with passengers on El Al flights, and some items are being shipped. CJP is supporting shipping costs.

Emergency trauma/mental health support: $2,154,000

American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee – Mental Health Initiative: $1,000,000
Grant approved by task force on 6/11/2024
Note: Another grant to the JDC approved on 10/19/2023; in Emergency Social Services area of work, for a total of $1,250,000 to the JDC.

About the JDC
JDC is the leading global Jewish humanitarian organization. Through its significant presence in Israel, the JDC regularly provides services to more than a million vulnerable Israelis (such as the elderly, people with disabilities, and families at risk). At the start of the crisis, JDC activated its emergency response team, establishing a direct line of communication with key government and municipal partners to assess and respond to needs. Now, eight months into the war, JDC is fully engaged in executing five major war response projects, including the prioritization of its newly developed National Mental Health Initiative.

Why CJP Gave
The events of October 7 and ensuing war has further highlighted the Israeli mental health system’s inadequacies, such as the system’s lack of proactive detection for mental distress, lack of comprehensive data regarding citizens’ mental health, narrow range of treatment options with overemphasis on individual therapy, and a lack of quality standards for mental health interventions. Through JDC’s National Mental Health Initiative, the JDC will advance two strategic objectives: Expand the reach and improve the quality of Israel’s mental health system, and broaden and incubate the range of interventions available beyond the almost exclusive emphasis on one-on-one psychotherapy.

Bshvil Hamachar: $325,000*
Grant approved by task force on 12/12/2023 ($25,000) and 2/27/2024 ($300,000)

Fiscal Sponsor: Friends of BSHVIL Hamachar, Inc.

About Bshvil Hamachar
After being released from the IDF, soldiers are often left to deal with the serious effects of combat events in their day-to-day lives. Bshvil helps fighters who are released from military service process their experience in combat.

Why CJP gave
The IDF estimates that 95,000 active-duty soldiers and reservists will require mental health support and therapy delivery to process the traumatic experiences of war in Gaza and the Northern Front. Bsvhil runs early intervention therapy programs in a peer-to-peer setting that help combat units recover from the extreme dynamics they have experienced, prepare them to return to civilian life, help reduce the probability of onset of PTSD, and for some soldiers, ensure that they have a safe space to heal before returning to duty. Funding for Bsvhil will support 25 combat units (nearly 400 reservist soldiers) who faced the most extreme scenarios of war through three-day programs and follow-up programming developed by Bshvil. In addition, CJP’s grant supports hundreds of online therapy support group sessions for spouses and family members of reservists, some of whom have been away on duty for 120 days of war and whose families need support as returning soldiers adjust back to civilian life.

HaGal Sheli: $300,000*
Grant approved by task force on 12/12/2023

About HaGal Sheli
HaGal Sheli utilizes surfing as an empowering educational tool to teach at-risk youth how to overcome life’s challenges through determination and persistence.

Why CJP gave
In the immediate aftermath of the October 7 attacks, HaGal Sheli initiated an emergency plan to help Israeli youth navigate their complex emotions and experiences using surfing. The Hagal Sheli program includes sessions led by educators, professional psychologists, and social workers. The goal is to swiftly reach as many affected teens as possible to offer aid, aiming to mitigate the development of war-related PTSD.

Momentum’s Thank Israeli Soldiers Program: $200,000*
Grant approved by task force on 2/27/2024

About Momentum’s Thank Israeli Soldiers Program
Momentum is an Israeli nonprofit focused on transitional services for combat soldiers. Anticipating a massive mental health challenge for soldiers facing combat in Gaza and the Northern Front when the war began and deployment numbers rose, the IDF Manpower Division tapped Momentum to lead its intensive mental health initiative and PTSD program at scale. This early intervention model assesses individual soldiers who have taken part in the most traumatic and violent warzone situations for warning signs of PTSD and other mental health complications and carries out three-day programs for full combat units to be in safe space together and supported through their exit journey from the war.

Why CJP gave
The IDF estimates that 95,000 soldiers will be candidates for the Thank Israeli Soldiers program given their participation in the most extreme war scenarios in the aftermath of the Hamas attacks. With proven methodology and deep collaboration between leading partners supporting mental health and transitional services for combat soldiers, the Thank Israeli Soldiers program is screening soldiers for PTSD, helping them build resilience and reintegrate into society. The program aims to build a “shield of resilience” in Israeli society by protecting civilians from the damaging long-term effects of PTSD.

The Hostages and Missing Families Forum – Summer of Hope Camp Program: $129,000*
Grant approved by task force on 6/11/2024
Note: Another grant to the Hostages and Missing Families Forum approved on 4/9/2024; in Emergency Social Services area of work, for a total of $879,000 to the Hostages and Missing Families Forum.

About The Hostages and Missing Families Forum
The Hostages and Missing Families Forum is the lifeline service organization delivering support to the 240 families — approximately 1,000 individuals — impacted by the October 7 Hamas kidnappings. Families gather daily at the Forum building located near Hostage Square in Tel Aviv, where they eat meals, meet with psychologists, field media requests, and spend time in community with one another. The building and the Forum’s services are serving as the heartbeat and point of connection for these families as they cope with the days, weeks, and months of pain, loss, and suffering. The Forum oversees 10 divisions of service to the families in the areas of mental health support, financial aid, and advocacy.

Why CJP gave
A second CJP grant to the Hostages and Missing Families Forum enables the participation of 30 Forum children and teenagers in the "Summer of Hope" project at Camp Kimama Halfmoon. Camp Kimama Halfmoon is a unique, two-week Israeli American summer camp in the Berkshires, and is designed for campers from the U.S., Israel, and around the world. This summer session was designed to support the immediate relief, emotional healing, and social integration of the 30 Forum participants. 

Kfar Izun: $100,000*
Grant approved by task force on 11/7/2023

About Kfar Izun
Under ordinary circumstances, Kfar Izun (Rebalance Village) serves as a haven for young adults battling drug addiction, offering them the necessary support to overcome their struggles. It is an innovative and unique treatment and rehabilitation village, the first of its kind in Israel and around the world. The village provides a therapeutic community for backpackers and young people in crisis between the ages of 18-40. Additionally, it acts as a highly effective refuge for soldiers dealing with PTSD, aiding them in their healing journey.

Why CJP gave
Following the Oct. 7 attacks, Kfar Izun swiftly mobilized to extend mental health assistance to the more than 2,000 survivors of the music festival that was the primary target of the Hamas attack. Many of the survivors of the festival were under the influence of drugs, which compounds the trauma; Izun has expertise to address this need and provide specific treatment. The organization is also anticipating and preparing for the hundreds—if not thousands—of PTSD cases that may arise post-war. Kfar Izun stands out for its exceptional quality of care, its team of dedicated professionals, and the strong support it receives from Israeli philanthropists. Kfar Izun is committed to providing top-notch mental health support, ensuring that those in need receive the help they deserve during this challenging time.

ERAN: $50,000*
Grant approved by task force on 10/24/2023

Fiscal Sponsor: US Friends of Eran

About ERAN
ERAN provides lifesaving emotional first aid services, offering initial response and emotional support on the phone and online, while maintaining strict confidentiality and anonymity. For five decades, ERAN volunteers have been reaching out to people in stressful situations, discreetly and confidentially. The range of referrals to ERAN is broad and includes situations such as dealing with trauma, depression, economic distress, teen challenges, loneliness, violence, abuse, eating disorders, self-image and sexual identity, difficulty in raising children, distress of Holocaust survivors, anxiety, and more.

Why CJP gave
Entire communities were eliminated in only a few hours. Almost every family in Israel has lost a family member or friend. The gruesome images of the extreme violence are bringing up trauma from the Holocaust, in addition to losing Israel’s basic sense of security. In this time of war, families of terror victims, family members of abducted citizens, children, the elderly, and professional service providers (such as police and soldiers) need access now to increased mental health support, which ERAN can offer.

Hamaniot (Sunflowers): $50,000*
Grant approved by task force on 2/8/2024

Fiscal Sponsor: From The Depths @ The Giving Back Fund

About Sunflowers
Sunflowers is an Israeli organization that provides psychological support for orphans (children and adolescents who have lost one or both of their parents). Alongside professionals in psychology and social care, Sunflowers developed a first-of-its-kind treatment model focused on minimizing risk factors among young orphans while helping them process the trauma of losing one or both parents. Nowadays, they are aiding 750 families per week in 30 activity centers across 22 local authorities in Israel.

Why CJP gave
On October 7, 22 children lost both parents, 232 lost at least one, and that number has grown daily to 500+ children since the war began. These young Israelis experienced exposure to disturbing events, loss of additional family members, and the inability to say a proper goodbye. The organization’s emergency program ensures orphans are integrating into existing activity centers where trauma specialists can advise on these complex cases. Sunflowers is establishing five new centers in the South and CJP’s grant will fund the next-scheduled center in Ofakim, where 40 children will be supported by a dedicated social worker and a visiting trauma specialist for the next two years.

Boston-Haifa Connection: $825,000

Boston-Haifa Connection - $825,000*

About The Boston-Haifa Connection
For more than 30 years, Greater Boston’s Jewish community has worked in partnership with its sister city of Haifa. The Boston-Haifa Connection is based on a simple idea: The best way to bring our communities and our people closer is through building relationships and addressing challenges together. Working side-by-side, the communities support at-risk families in Haifa, foster Jewish identity in both communities, connect youth in Boston and Haifa, and empower change-makers in the communities.

Why CJP gave
As escalation in the Northern Front continues in the aftermath of October 7, Haifa has become the premier gateway city for supporting both its own citizens who are victims of the war and evacuees from the North. In tandem with government resources, other philanthropic bodies, and a group of lay leader volunteers with connections on the ground, the Boston-Haifa Connection office will prioritize funding of Haifa-based projects and support of nonprofits who are providing the most vulnerable Haifa citizens and evacuees with lifeline services, employment services, services with goals of promoting shared society during this difficult war-time dynamic, and by providing grants to medical rehabilitation institutions that are servicing soldiers and reservists wounded by the war. The Boston-Haifa Connection office will work closely with CJP’s Israel Emergency Fund Task Force members to grant under the funding principles stated above and regularly report back on projects funded, as well as impact made.

Israel Association of Community Centers: $150,000*
Grant approved by task force on 12/5/2023

About Israel Association Of Community Centers

Why CJP gave
The funding to IACC will help support women and children in the 14 Druze villages in Northern Israel. Many Druze community members have been called for reserve duty in the IDF and other security forces since the war began, leaving behind single-parent families facing challenging circumstances. In this difficult period, many mothers are tasked with addressing their own fears, anxieties, and uncertainties, as well as those of their children. Through the community centers it operates in some of the Druze village, the IACC will provide emotional and social support through temporary learning centers with computers and educational materials for children whose formal education has been disrupted due to the war; workshops for women on coping with stressful situations and parenting during the crisis; and enrichment activities and care programs for children and youth.

Why CJP gave
Tishreen is establishing an Emergency Support Center for young Arabs to promote open dialogue, ease tensions, and help foster a stable political climate with coexistence between Jews and Arabs.

With the funding, Tishreen will mobilize a volunteer team in the community and schools to create educational activities, which will serve 250 young Arab men and women for three months as they process and cope with their emotions.

Other: $100,000

The Dvora Institute: $100,000*
