Israel Aid
Over 3,000 Jewish Federation leaders urged the House to pass 14.1 billion in aid to Israel, the funding for Nonprofit Security Grants, and aid to Ukraine. In an interview with Punchbowl News on 2/26/24, Israeli Minister for Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer, stated “I think we need the aid yesterday.” The passage of this aid will help Israel in its efforts against Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, and other bad actors around the region. Urge your House leaders to support the swift passage of aid.

Antisemitism Awareness Act (H.R. 6090)
Jewish Federations also addressed the House in a letter, signed by 16 major Jewish community organizations, to use the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition of antisemitism, as an important step in combatting all manifestations of this hate. Jewish Federations CEO Eric Fingerhut stated to Jewish Insider, “We recognize that members of Congress and their staffs are likely hearing from people about the Nexus definition, so we’ll address it directly and explain to them why it’s a diversion, and not a substantive response to antisemitism.” Ask your House representative to cosponsor the Antisemitism Awareness Act (H.R. 6090)
