The Greater Miami Jewish Federation, its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami (RAGM) welcome the release today of 13 Israeli hostages, 10 Thai nationals and one Filipino citizen abducted from Israel by Hamas and other terrorists on October 7.
Governor Ron DeSantis convened the State Legislature for a special session earlier this month, passing $45 million in security funding for Jewish organizations as a result of the horrendous rise in antisemitism occurring since the Israel-Hamas war.
“I knew I couldn’t be the only person in Miami with a child in Israel. It takes a mother in the same situation to understand, said Denise Dunager, M.S.Ed, a Refuat Ha-Nefesh Fellow, who founded and facilitates the Support Group for Women With Children in Israel.
As the educational subsidiary of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) is working diligently to provide members of Miami’s Jewish community with resources to help stand with Israel during the ongoing war, find comfort, talk with children and students, and take action.
The Mission of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is to mobilize human and financial resources to care for those in need, strengthen Jewish life and advance the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people in Miami, in Israel and around the world.
