Since its Independence, Israel Has Always Been a Leader in Humanitarian Aid

When tragedy strikes, Israel is always there to provide assistance. Through various agencies and nonprofits such as IsraAid and Mashav, Israel strives to fulfill its mission of “Tikkun Olam,” of making the world a better place.

No matter whether it is an earthquake ravaging Haiti, a plane crashing in the French Alps, or a massive tsunami devastating Japan, Israel always sends some of the first responders when disasters hit. Watch this video to see why humanitarian aid is truly in the spirit of the Jewish state.
