About the project

The Jerusalem Foundation established a $1 million fund to support emergency aid projects during the wave of terror attacks in the city during the Al-Aqsa (Second) Intifada (2000-2005). Increased security was provided at cultural institutions and community centers, and counseling and enrichment programs for all ages were held at schools and community centers, with special attention paid to the Gilo neighborhood, which was a target of shootings from neighboring Beit Jala. The Jerusalem Foundation also assisted the emergency organizations Magen Dovid Adom and Zaka, and helped establish the Jerusalem Municipal Support & Training System for Emergencies.
