Help in a hurry

Worth a read is this article from JAFI about a new program they're using to funnel immediate cash grants (underwritten by UJC and Keren Hayesod) to Israelis directly affected by kassam rockets launched by terrorists in Gaza.

... Since the immediate assistance program started less than a month ago, the Jewish Agency has awarded over $20,000 in grants to families affected by Kassam attacks. In one week alone (January 10th – 17th), over 160 rockets fell in Sderot and the Jewish Agency awarded nearly $17,000.
