What is Happening in Israel?
On October 7th, Hamas, an Iranian-backed terrorist group, attacked southern and central Israel from the Gaza Strip.
Hamas fired thousands of rockets and infiltrated nearly 20 Israeli communities, killing at least 1,400, injuring thousands, and holding more than 200 hostages back in the Gaza Strip.
Philos is grieving with our Jewish and Israeli friends in the region who are suffering unspeakable tragedy.
Tangible Ways To Help
- Join PAL
The Philos Action League is a membership community of Christians who are committed to showing up, physically, in solidarity and friendship with the Jewish community when an act of antisemitism happens. Since calls for violence against Jews have risen 1200% since October 7th, this is an especially relevant way to stand up for Israel and the Jewish people.
