New National Resilience Center Treats Trauma Survivors Across Israel

Thousands of Israelis — including 700 survivors of the Tribe of Nova Music Festival — are receiving mental health support and trauma therapy through the newly established National Resilience Center. Formed in response to the events of October 7 by the Israel Trauma Coalition (ITC), Federation’s partner agency, the National Insurance Institute and the Ministry of Health, the Center serves Israelis suffering from terror-related anxiety who live in areas without active resilience centers. Patients receive comprehensive care through 24 therapy sessions. The National Resilience Center is also helping more than 3,000 firefighters and first-response volunteers. To help ITC carry on its critical work during the war, the organization received an emergency allocation of approximately $5.5 million from the Jewish Federations of North America Israel Emergency Fund, a national collective effort that has raised more than $659 million, including $26.5 million from our community. Additionally, ITC receives an annual allocation from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign to help care for Israelis during more ordinary times, and to be well-prepared for the extraordinary times the country is now facing.
