JFNA Grants $12.5 Million to Rebuild Western Negev Farms Devastated by Hamas Terrorism

JFNA to support Western Negev farmers in rebuilding their farms following Hamas attack

The Western Negev farms, known for their productivity and contribution to Israel’s economy, have been targeted and destroyed by Hamas terrorists. This has resulted in significant financial losses for farmers and kibbutzim in the region. In response to this tragedy, The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) is stepping in to provide grants of up to $12.5 million to help rebuild these farms.

The grant, awarded in partnership with ReGrow, a project of the Israeli Agricultural Research Institute Machon Volkani and the Mishkei HaNegev cooperative association, will allow farmers to quickly replace their destroyed equipment and resume farming before the spring planting season begins. The goal is to help farmers rebuild after suffering major financial losses due to the attack.

Farmers like Moran Freibach from Kibbutz Nahal Oz have remained resilient and determined to rebuild despite the destruction caused by Hamas terrorists. JFNA recognizes the importance of revitalizing agriculture in the Western Negev after these attacks and is proud to be able to support this effort. Rebecca Caspi, senior vice president of JFNA, emphasized the critical role that rebuilding agriculture plays in ensuring that the fields will once again be green as a symbol of victory over those who seek to destroy it.
