Update on Devastating Wildfire in Tzfat


A devastating wildfire in the city of Tzfat, part of our community’s Partnership2Gether region TZAHAR, has forced dozens of families from their homes.

Here is the most recent update from our contacts on the ground:

  • There have been 30 families forced to evacuate, many of whom are elderly and poor. Most likely, these citizens have no insurance.
  • 14 homes have been completely destroyed. These families are now without their homes, clothes, personal belongings or food.
  • 16 families who live close to the fire have been evacuated.

Through your compassion and generosity, Federation is providing immediate assistance to those affected by the fire. We are ensuring:

  • Shelter at a local hotel for several of the evacuated families.
  • Immediate respite, food and trauma counseling for those affected.
  • In addition, we are in close contact with our Partnership2Gether office, leadership in the region and our partners at The Jewish Agency for Israel to provide emergency assistance.

In times of calm or times of crisis, you can empower our efforts to save lives.
