Shalom,I’m pleased to be able to end this difficult year with some good and important news.A group of generous donors have stepped forward and agreed to double the impact of your donation. Every dollar given up to $45,000 this December will be matched.I know you care about the future of Israel. That is why I’m asking for your generous help to strengthen Israel from the intensifying effects of climate change. Within decades Israel may become uninhabitable, leaving the Jewish people again without safe refuge. Your support can protect us against this fate. Climate change is not a threat in the distant future. It’s happening NOW. In the past few decades, Israel has warmed 1.4 C (2.5 F). This may not seem much, but for those living here the consequences have already been tragic and ominous:
Beyond this, I’m most scared of the intensifying heatwaves themselves. Israel just experienced the hottest September ever recorded. Once temperatures rise beyond 100 F (37 C) and with humidity levels common in Tel Aviv, our bodies are pushed beyond their ability to cool down. The heat will induce strokes and heart attacks, especially among the elderly and vulnerable. Even healthy adults will be in danger.However, hope is not lost.Your generous support can strengthen Israel by advancing projects that will mitigate the effects of climate change by using the power of nature. With your support we can invest in nature in and around our cities to cool them and protect ourselves and our families from the impacts of climate change.
The types of projects urgently needed include:
"It is not your responsibility to finish the work of perfecting the world, but you are not free to desist from it either” Ethics of the Forefathers 2:21
Implementing these solutions across Israel at the scale necessary is formidable. Without your support it will be impossible.Double the impact of your gift by donating now and taking advantage of our End of Year Matching Fund. Double the impact of your gift and protect Israel. Without these nature-based solutions I am afraid that within decades Israel will be uninhabitable, and again the Jewish people may have no homeland.
So please, click the link at the top of this page and make a generous donation to strengthen Israel from the impacts of climate change.
Thank youIris Hann CEO, Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel
PS. Donations received by 31st December up to $45,000 will be doubled. Please donate today. Your gift will strengthen Israel against the impacts of climate change.
