Support Israel

As a united community, our heartfelt prayers go out to the Israeli people who are currently enduring a series of devastating and inhumane attacks. This is an immensely painful time for both the State of Israel and the entire Jewish community worldwide. We stand together to provide unwavering support during this ordeal and draw strength from our Jewish Center of the Hamptons community. We have also put together resources for our community to direct you to reliable news coverage, commentary, educational resources for children, as well as places to direct charitable giving.

Media Coverage

If you are on Instagram, we recommend following the accounts of Hen Mazzig and Noa Tishby, two Israeli writers and activists sharing clear content rooted in facts.

We recommend the journalism of Seth Frantzman, Senior Middle East Corespondent for the Jerusalem Post, Brett Stephens, opinion columnist for the NY Times, and Bari Weiss, founder and editor of the Free Press.
