1000 STRONG – SUPPORT THE IDF AND THE VICTIMS OF TERROR

October 19, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Introducing 1,000 STRONG, a monumental rooftop fundraiser on Thursday night, October 19th.  1,000+ Israel supporters will gather to raise crucial funds for front line IDF soldiers and the victims of the Succot Massacre. Our mission is clear: to provide immediate support to those in need, and we’re directing 100% of the proceeds to four grassroots charities that are in dire need. All event expenses are covered by volunteers and event hosts. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in one night.

 

Join us for an evening of unity, compassion, and generosity, where your participation can be the catalyst for life-saving support. Expect to hear from community leaders, prominent voices and survivors of the attack. We will light candles, lock arms and sing along with well-known performers and singers.

 

The four charities we designated, which are independently verified and close to home for many of us, are as follows:

 

  1. Kibbutz Karmiya was devastated by Hamas. Families lost their homes, their loved ones and their peace. We made contact with Danielle Biton, a resident of Kibbutz Karmiya, to provide much needed support to the displaced families. We couldn’t think of a more fitting place to uplift. Hear Danielle’s recount of the terror attacks here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CyLkkeOINrG/
  2. Reservist Soldiers, true heroes and our friends, have left behind their American lives, homes, and career to stand on the front lines to secure Israel’s security and rescue the hostages. This monumental draft, the largest since the Yom Kippur War, has brought a pressing need for essential supplies, food, and equipment. Elite units, such as the ‏אגוז, ‏דובדבן, צנחנים will receive vital funds.
  3. Kol HaNearim has been a lifeline for thousands of orphans and disadvantaged children year-round. In the wake of the massacre, the group leaders of the houses have been called to reservist duty, or, tragically, lost in the attacks. Now, Kol HaNearim urgently needs our help to rebuild its team, and ensure these children continue to receive care. Learn More Here: https://www.kolhanearim.org.
  4. BulletProof Israel, led by Remi Franklin, has specialized knowledge in manufacturing and transporting military equipment. In the wake of the attacks, BulletProof Israel is concentrating its efforts to produce as many bulletproof vests as possible, which is severely under-supplied at the moment. We must ensure that our fighters have the equipment they need. Learn more here: https://bulletproofisrael.square.site.

In a time of such darkness, 1,000 STRONG will be a shining light of hope and support.

Together, we are 1,000 STRONG

עם ישראל חי🇮🇱
