“For us, farming is ideology, economy and Zionism”
– Michal, Resident of Ein Habesor
In the wake of unprecedented horror, Israeli farming communities by the Gaza Strip face a daunting path to recovery. Loved ones were murdered, families torn apart, homes destroyed and livelihoods shattered. Beyond the indescribable human loss, Israel’s immediate food security is also endangered and, as survivors have told us: without agriculture these communites cannot rebuild.

Given we are preparing for war around Gaza, is this the right time? Hamas have taken lives, destroyed families and ruined homes and livelihoods. We will not let them destroy our future. It is never too soon to start. As the communities have told us, they are totally consumed by survival, trying to get through day after day. They do not have the capacity to think and plan for the future. They have welcomed the initiative and there are obvious projects that can launch even while preparing for war.
How will this complement efforts by the Government of Israel? Due to the relationships held by the Governing Committee, the Fund will coordinate closely with the Government making sure projects funded are needed by the communities and complement efforts of the Government.
Will donations qualify for tax exemption? Yes through the platform JGives donations are tax exempt in US, Canada, UK, and Israel.
