Not everyone
born in Israel
can be a
tough-skinned sabra.

"Sabra" is the Hebrew word for the prickly pear cactus,

but more commonly refers to native-born Israelis, known

for their resilience.

Since November of 2000, that resilience has been cruelly

tested. More than 14,500 acts of terror have claimed the

lives of over 100 Israelis. Many thousands have been left

maimed, orphaned, widowed. Israel's once-booming economy

has all but collapsed. One out of every five families in

Israel now lives in poverty.

Every day in Israel, life goes on. But it costs.

Those who are most vulnerable, those who struggle to

fend for themselves — victims of terror, families without

breadwinners, the frail, immigrants who have arrived

with nothing — they need all the support we can give.

Please give. Call. Email. Increase your pledge to Federation's

2003 Annual Campaign. And please consider a one-time

gift to the Grand Challenge: Israel Emergency Fund.

With your help, we'll keep the promise.

Four ways to give:

• Call (248) 205-2550

• E-mail pledge@jfmd.org

• www.thisisfederation.org

• Mail your pledge to:
Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
P.O. Box 2030 • Bloomfield Hills, MI 48303-2030

The Grand Challenge: Israel Emergency Fund

The challenge is on. The Grand Challenge: Israel Emergency Fund, has been established through the
generosity of Nancy and Stephen Grand to target the most urgent social, welfare and educational needs
facing families in Israel now. One time gifts will be matched dollar for dollar and go directly to Israel.
