The Progressive Movement of Australia including ARZA Australia, the Union of Progressive Judaism, and Progressive Judaism Victoria declares our strong support for the people of Israel as they face an unprecedented attack by Hamas on a holy day for Jews.
We stand with Israel, its citizens and the Israel Defence Forces.
With our Progressive Israel Appeal partners, the United Israel Appeal, we ask you to support the UIA Israel at War Appeal.
The funding will go to:
- Financial support for the Victims of Terror Fund;
- Provision of mobile bomb shelters;
- Relocating families out of danger; and
- Supporting displaced victims.
This is a practical and pro-active way to help the people of Israel in this difficult time.
Am Yisrael Chai,
Helen Shardey OAM
President of ARZA Australia
David D Knoll AM and Brian Samuel OAM
Co-Presidents of the Union for Progressive Judaism
