JNF-UJA's power response was summarized by its CEO, Russell Robinson, in the Times of Israel, https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/weve-come-too-far-to-stay-silent-any-longer/, in pertinent part:
"At Jewish National Fund we are standing up and calling attention to what has not made it into the headlines. We are gathering our voices together to share the story of these families. From August 19 through August 30, Jewish National Fund is bringing a farmer, a mother, and a student to share firsthand accounts of what life is like. The true story. This caravan will travel to communities across the United States and together we can make a sound that is louder than the sirens. Join us, invite your friends and family, share these stories on social media, and reach out to your local representatives. Together we can make sure that what is happening is no longer silent.
Jewish National Fund-USA has also launched an emergency campaign to further relief efforts and support the communities affected by this terrorism. In addition to funding trauma resilience centers and the JNF Sderot Indoor Recreation Center, we are also planning to add bomb shelters, paint 20 bomb shelters already in place to make them child-friendly, provide new fire trucks and firefighting wagons, purchase life-saving equipment, and fund special activities for children of the region.""Standing up," "joining our voices together," "launched an emergency campaign." Just think of those responses and we can understand the pride that JNF-USA's constituency and its lay and professional leadership feel -- we can understand that sense of pride because it's the sense we once had in our continental entity.
Were I to contrast the powerful response of JNF-USA with the lack of any response to JFNA, it would be damn embarrassing to show JFNA's actions as a sorry blank page.
It has been pointed out to me that I have understated the contributions of JFNA for the federations. So, I will add the following Release from JFNA in haec verba:
Two observations that speak for themselves: (1) the Release above was titled "JFNA Allocates Funds to help besieged Israelis" but does not recall that the "Funds" were from the unspent "Victims of Terror Fund" created by donors like you at the time of Operation Protective Edge in 2014 (fill in your question here: _______________________); and (2) nothing much to really see here and no new FRD to have a more significant impact.
So, chevre, I will just applaud JNF-USA for stepping up boldly where others stand aside at a time that cries out for boldness.
