Following the Second Lebanon War in the north of Israel and the accelerated missile fire from Gaza in the south during the summer of 2006, the Jewish Federations of North America launched an Initiative to respond to the ensuing needs of children and youth. The Initiative produced more than 200 programs, which were implemented via JDC-Israel/Ashalim, the Jewish Agency, and the Israel Trauma Coalition: enrichment activities, activities for teaching social values, scholastic assistance and dropout prevention programs, trauma treatment, and programs for preschoolers and children with special needs. Tens of thousands of children in some 60 localities participated in the programs over the two years of implementation.
