As the leading address for members of the English-speaking community in Israel, Chaim V’Chessed has been inundated with calls relating to the ongoing war in Israel. These calls have included travel questions, passport issues, medical challenges and much more. The organization has transferred staff from other departments to handle the crush of war-related inquiries.
There are also countless members of the English speaking community in need of emotional support. To meet this need, Chaim V’Chessed has now partnered with Chai Lifeline to operate an Emotional Crisis Hotline. Chai Lifeline is the leading trauma and crisis resource in the Jewish community, and we are honored to work together with them.
The hotline serves all members of the English speaking community in Israel, including yeshiva and seminary students. It is also geared to English speaking parents abroad who have children located in Israel.
Staffed by responders from around the world, the hotline is available 24 hours a day. It can be reached by at 03-978-6304 from within Israel or at 732-377-5135 from the USA.
