Statement from Eric S. Goldstein, CEO, UJA-Federation of New York
New York (October 7, 2023) — “UJA-Federation stands with Israel as it defends itself against the horrific barrage of terrorist attacks on the people of Israel. We are working with our partners to provide urgent resources. New York — the largest Jewish community outside of Israel — is in unbreakable solidarity with Israel at war.
I am currently in Israel, working with our partners on the ground to help get assistance to where it is needed most. The global Jewish community stands in unity with the Israeli people and share their grief and anger at this callous, cowardly assault on Israeli citizens.”
