United Jewish Federation of Stamford shows its support in wake of Hamas attack

News 12 Connecticut spoke with leaders of the United Jewish Federation of Stamford, New Canaan and Darien on Sunday in the wake of the attack by Hamas on Israel that has left hundreds of people dead.
Israel formally declared war on Sunday against the militant group who launched a surprise attack from the air, land and sea on Saturday.
Michael Schlessinger, president of the UJF of Stamford, says that there are many questions about what to do next and how cooperation between the U.S. and Israel will play a role.
Diane Sloyer, CEO of the UJF of Stamford, says the organization is raising funds to support their partners in Israel.
“We’ve been on emergency calls since yesterday to talk about what our global response will be as a community because when you act together you have much more impact,” says Sloyer.
UJF is hosting a community solidarity event on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Temple Beth El in Stamford.
