The Second Lebanon War broke out in the summer of 2006. A few months later, a rehabilitation initiative for children and youth was implemented by the United Jewish Communities (UJC/Jewish Federations of North America), in an effort to meet a variety of needs that arose following the war. The Initiative included over 200 programs, implemented by JDC-Ashalim, the Jewish Agency and the Israel Trauma Coalition, in different areas: enrichment, value-related education, improved scholastic achievement and dropout prevention, post-traumatic therapy, early childhood programs and programs for children with special needs. The programs were implemented in some 60 localities and tens of thousands of children participated in them over the course of two years. The current report summarizes the findings from an evaluation conducted in twelve localities in two stages â€" a few months after the start of the Initiative and a year later. A forthcoming report presents in greater detail the parents' views of their children's needs and the way these needs were addressed during the Initiative.
