NEW YORK - In light of the wave of violence hitting Israel recently, the UJA-Federation of New York has decided to release $100,000 as an immediate response to help with the needs of Israelis during the difficult time.

The funds will be transferred to the UJA-founded Israel Trauma Coalition, an organization  providing specialized training to psychologists to support families who have lost loved ones and others who might be suffering from PTSD.

“When Israelis are in trouble, UJA is there,” UJA-Federation CEO Eric S. Goldstein said in a statement.

“With our support of ITC, an organization we founded during the second Intifada, we are moving to ensure urgent needs can be met including expanded training on trauma response and preparedness across Israel to reinforce skills for individuals, teams, and first responders on how to respond to emergency,” he added.
