Donate to HOT’s Israel Relief Efforts
As rockets launched from Gaza have continued to fall in many parts of Israel, HOT has immediately responded by coordinating with its partners on the ground to provide assistance to many Victims of Terror. HOT has been able to act quickly thanks to the support of our donors, whose gifts go 100% to those in need (with NOTHING taken out for administrative expenses) – and our strong partners.

Over the last few days, HOT has made grants of 149,752 shekels (approximately $45,000 USD) to help the people of Sderot (72,000 shekels) and Ashkelon (77,752 shekels).
The grants to help the people of Sderot were used to permit families who were rated “4” by HOT’s rating system (4 = a belief that at least one member of the family was so traumatized by the constant barrage of missiles and explosions that staying in Sderot any longer would create a high probability of a level of PTSD that would materially interfere with their future lives). Of the 72,000 shekels, approximately 51,000 shekels were used yesterday and today mostly to send 41 families for 3 day stays in Youth Hostels in Beit She’an and Lachish. The remaining 21,000 shekels will either be used Sunday morning or will be used for respite for other families, G-d forbid, on Sunday. If this chapter of life in Sderot, G-d willing, comes to a close before they spend the other 19,000 shekels, we will have it used for PTSD therapy or to help the working poor who are paid by the hour and have not been able to work this week.
We are starting to get requests from our partners in other parts of the country for assistance as they assist people in the south

40 shelters x 147 nis = 5,880 nis
10 shelters x 147 nis (on hold, if needed. Sadly they were needed) =1470 nis
