In response to the worst antisemitic attack against the Jewish people since the Holocaust, the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) launched an emergency fund to support relief organizations in Israel providing direct assistance to the people and communities impacted by the violence.
The response has been overwhelming, and as of Thursday more than $650,000 had been raised for the Israel Emergency Support Fund, more than halfway to the goal of $1 million.
All of the donations are being matched, meaning that at least $1.3 million will be given to a broad array of organizations that will help Israeli society heal and rebuild from the brutal atrocity it suffered on Oct. 7.
CAM has already begun to disperse the money to ensure it will have an immediate impact at this time of urgent need.
“We’re so pleased to facilitate this amazing generosity, which is making a true difference on the ground,” CAM CEO Sacha Roytman said. “The repercussions of the horrors of Oct. 7 will be felt for years to come, and we will do everything we can — today, tomorrow, next week, next month, and long into the future — to help the State of Israel and the Jewish people overcome this terrible tragedy.”
