Foundation Response to the Attacks on Israel

Farash Foundation Statement
October 12, 2023


In the spirit of our founders, Max and Marian Farash, the Farash Foundation’s board of trustees and staff share a profound concern for the welfare of the Jewish people. The recent attacks on Israel have left us deeply shocked and saddened. Our hearts go out to the thousands of innocent civilians who have tragically lost their lives, been taken hostage, or injured. Our thoughts are also with those mourning the loss of loved ones.

We express our unwavering support for our Israeli grantees and colleagues, who tirelessly work to uphold Israeli society despite the challenges. Although the path ahead is uncertain, the Farash Foundation remains resolute in its dedication to the safety and well-being of the Jewish people, here and abroad. In the face of the alarming rise in antisemitism, we stand firm in our fight against hatred. In solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people, we at Farash Foundation are fervently praying for lasting peace.
