JNS.org – The Jewish Agency for Israel on Wednesday announced that it will distribute a total of $1 million to more than 100 victims of the current Palestinian terror wave in Israel.

“The support provided by Jewish communities around the world is not only financial in nature. This is an expression of Diaspora Jewry’s solidarity with the people of Israel, which is also manifested by the hundreds of thousands of Jews who visit Israel, the tens of thousands of Jewish young people who participate in Israel experience programs, and the record number of Jews who choose to immigrate to Israel — even now,” Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky said in a statement.

The funds will be disbursed by the Jewish Agency’s Fund for Victims of Terror in cooperation with the Jewish Federations of North America and Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal. Each terror victim or victim’s family member will receive about $6,400, on top of a grant of slightly more than $1,000 that the Jewish Agency already offers them to help with immediate needs.
