Let's Come Together for Israel


In response to the crisis, the Tidewater Jewish Foundation (TJF) Executive Committee is taking a decisive step by authorizing $100,000.00 for the UJFT Israel 2023 Emergency Fund. We invite you to join us as part of Tidewater's collective support. No matter the size, every grant will bolster the urgent response efforts in Israel.
