The Institute for the Study of Civil Society and Philanthropy at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has just released an extensive report on “Civil Society Engagement in Israel During the Iron Swords War.” In the first two weeks of the conflict, Israel witnessed an unprecedented surge in volunteerism, with an astonishing 48.6% of the population actively participating—a notable increase from previous crises.

A shining example of this unity, ten international students from Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem collaborated with the Human Front community organization to provide support to Jerusalem residents affected by the war. These dedicated students prepared meals for those in need, meticulously chopping hundreds of vegetables, cooking large quantities of rice and pasta, and crafting generous servings of antipasto, salads, and sauces, benefiting approximately 160 individuals.

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers!
