The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) has raised $1,652,190 for Israeli emergency relief projects and initiatives that require urgent support in the aftermath of the Oct. 7 Hamas attack in southern Israel and the ongoing war it triggered.
The Israel Emergency Support Fund was the result of efforts by CAM’s local Israel team, which traveled across the country, collaborating with individuals, organizations, and initiatives, and together have successfully developed and launched projects within a remarkably short span of time.
The fundraising campaign, which raised over $800,000 from over a thousand individuals from around the world, was matched by CAM donors.
CAM is standing in solidarity with the affected communities, offering them hope, strength, and the resources necessary to rebuild and heal. The funds raised are crucial in helping them regain their lives and restore a sense of security and stability.
CAM held an online briefing on Wednesday highlighting the work of some of the organizations and raised nearly $60,000 during the live event.
A full recording of the briefing — “From Crisis to Care: Israel’s Emergency Support Efforts Unveiled” — can be viewed here:
“We are working with the heroes of Israel and contributing to their efforts,” said CAM CEO Sacha Roytman Dratwa. “In the face of unspeakable loss, we are witnessing such remarkable instances of heroism, solidarity, unity, and contribution. This is the spirit of Israel that we are honored to support in some small way.”
Wednesday’s briefing featured some of those involved in the helping and healing processes, including representatives from SafeHeart (Nova Help), Courage Kitchen, Tnuat Hamoshavim, Ofakim Community Resilience Center, Katef el Katef – Shoulder to Shoulder, Ethiopian Women Empowerment, Perach Israel, and MASA Israel.
