Take Action: Support Israel’s Defense and Protect Our Communities

Apr 15, 2024 | Article, JCRC

On Saturday, April 13th, Iran launched a devastating attack on Israel, using drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles in a clear escalation of hostilities. Thankfully, due to the incredible efforts of the IDF, US armed forces, and Israel’s regional partners, 99% of the incoming projectiles were intercepted, saving countless lives. This attack underscores the gravity of the threats Israel faces and the strength of the US-Israel relationship. The time to act is now!

Now, we urgently call on the House to advance a supplemental aid package to provide $14.1 billion in crucial support to Israel, including funding for essential defense systems like the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and Arrow-3. This package must also include additional funding for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program to protect communities from antisemitic violence.

Thanks to your advocacy, the Senate has already passed a supplemental aid package with $400 million for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program. Now, it’s crucial for the House to follow suit. Please reach out to your Representatives using this action alert and stress the importance of this funding for the safety of the Jewish community and beyond.

Spread the word, share the action alert, and urge your friends and family to join the cause. Be sure to follow JEWISHcolorado and the JCRC on Facebook or LinkedIn to stay plugged in on our advocacy

Together, we can ensure passage of this vital bill for our U.S. and Israeli communities.
