Over the past year the UJIA (United Jewish Israel
Appeal) has been doing its best to respond to the
very specific needs in Israel caused by the ongoing
terrorist atrocities. After the Seder night attack
in Netanya, we decided to increase the intensity of
our activity in order to ensure maximum possible support
for both the survivors and the families of the victims
of these attacks. We believe that this programme offers
a real and practical way to help these people who
are having to deal with the aftermath of these attacks
on a daily basis.
The UJIA's Victim Support Fund has distributed over
£1 million in the last four months to 155 Israeli
terror victims and their families.

While we wanted to offer some monetary support to
the victims, it now appears that the Israeli Government
is adequately taking care of that aspect.
The Exilarch's Foundation has now set up, instead,
its own programme in Jerusalem providing packages
of cooked rice and lentils to some 500 needy people
a day, which has proved very popular. There is room
for enlarging this project.
