Jewish Agency Distributing Emergency Aid to Terror Victims (IMRA)
The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Fund for Victims of Terror on Wednesday began granting immediate financial aid of NIS 4,000 to Israelis affected by terror attacks, with grants made possible by the Jewish Federations of North America, Keren Hayesod-UIA, and other donors.
In addition, the fund will present each family recognized as victims of terror by Israel’s National Insurance Institute with supplemental aid of up to NIS 25,000.
Chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive Natan Sharansky said: “It is important that we help the families as swiftly as possible, even before the government steps in. It is important that we embrace the victims with the solidarity of world Jewry and that we extend immediate, practical aid.”
Since the Fund was established in 2002, it has assisted more than 6,000 Israeli families to help them through the immediate aftermath of an attack.
