Jewish Federations are collecting funds to help address the impact of over 480 fires
raging across Israel, which have already displaced nearly 100,000 people. In many places, essential services such as electricity and train lines have been interrupted. Many major roads have been closed intermittently.

The impact on Israelis will be long-lasting.
