B'nai B'rith International is launching an Israel Emergency Fund in response to events in Israel and the Gaza Strip. Its goal is to raise funds to assist Israeli residents who are dealing with a barrage of rocket attacks from Hamas. Funds could also be used to help with the personal needs of Israel Defense Forces soldiers.

"We must support Israeli residents who have been subjected to an unimaginable life as Hamas continues its terror attacks into Israel," B'nai B'rith International President Allan J. Jacobs said.
