We've all heard voices of hatred and antisemitism around the globe glorifying the October 7 attacks. But these voices will never drown out those of Americans who stand against terror and with Israel. Now it's time to raise your voice: to defeat antisemitism, to demand freedom for the hostages, and to demonstrate that America stands with Israel.


Be there!

On October 7, 2023, during the holiday of Shmini Atzeret, Hamas terrorists launched an unprecedented attack on Israel from Gaza, firing thousands of rockets, breaching the country’s borders, killing over 1,300 Israelis, and wounding hundreds more. More than 200 Israelis have been kidnapped by Hamas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that Israel was at war to defend itself and gave the order for the IDF to commence "Operation Swords of Iron.”

An update from RHN

With Mayor Eran Doron

Especially during difficult times, we want you to take care of yourself and your families. You can only be a powerful ally if you're safe, physically and emotionally.

  • There is concern that horrific videos may circulate on social media platforms – specifically TikTok, X (formerly Twitter), and Instagram. Hamas has threatened to execute Israeli hostages on video. These images can be traumatic to anyone who views them, and especially youth. We recognize that we cannot control all of what our children consume on the internet, but we can protect them from harm in this way.
  • Jewish Nevada is compiling a database of counselors and mental health professionals who are equipped to handle traumatic situations and are offering pro-bono and discounted services to our community at this time. Options for in-person and tele-health visits will be available. If you are looking for resources or if you are a provider and would like to add your name to this list, please contact andrew@jewishnevada.org.
  • If you are a parent of a soldier or reservist currently serving in the IDF and would like information about a parent support group, please contact Julia@jewishnevada.org

On October 16, 2023, Democratic and Republican leaders in the Nevada Assembly issued a proclamation unequivocally condemning the Hamas attacks and reiterating support for Israel in Nevada. 
Jewish Nevada received a copy this week, and it is now hanging in our office. It is signed by Speaker Steve Yeager and the Minority Leader PK O’Neill.
We are appreciative of this show of support of Israel by our home state. 

Jewish Nevada and the Israeli American Council are partnering with Baby's Bounty to provide diapers to families in Israel. Working with Convoy of Hope, an international disaster relief logistics coordinator, the Baby’s Bounty team is collecting diapers, wipes, and funds which will be sent via cargo plane to the region. 


You can drop off diapers and wipes to Baby's Bounty - Monday through Friday from 8AM-4PM at 3400 West Desert Inn Road #24, Las Vegas, NV 89102 or at the Jewish Nevada offices at 8861 West Sahara Avenue #120, Monday through Thursday 9AM-4PM and Friday 9AM-3PM. 


Monetary donations can be made at jewishnevada.org/donate. Please write Baby's Bounty in the donation purpose line.
