A Message from our Chairman & President
Newly donated bullet-proof vests reach special forces units on October 17, 2023.
Our nation is defending its homeland following the devastating events of the Black Sabbath of October 7th. In the midst of our grief, we draw strength from the cohesive spirit of Israeli society and the unwavering support of Jewish communities worldwide as it rallies to support our soldiers.
Early in the campaign, we focused on acquiring life-saving gear for our brave soldiers. With help from our international friends, we provided ceramic vests and portable ultrasound devices for MASH units.
University of Haifa is committed to supporting hundreds of its students who have been called for reserve duty and displaced families. We have established the President’s Emergency Fund to ensure their well-being. The Fund will provide for:
1. Living Stipends: Access to financial assistance to each student soldier.
2. Psychological Support Package: Provided to students soldiers and their families through the University’s Interdisciplinary Clinical Center.
3. University Dormitories: Shelter for evacuated families on the University’s Mt. Carmel and City campuses.
By safeguarding our student soldiers and displaced families, we secure our homeland for future generations.
