The UJA-Federation of New York will allocate $9.3 million from its Israel Emergency Campaign to a northern Israeli city. The $9.8 million will go to helping Kiryat Shmona recover from Israel’s war with Hezbollah. Some of the funds will go to the Jewish Agency for Israel to help schoolchildren, some will go to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee to help economic recovery and the frail and elderly.
