Chabad's Terror Victims Project(CTVP) is a non-profit, humanitarian organization that embodies the spirit, love, and compassion of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
With over 300 Chabad Houses across the length and breadth of Israel, we are within minutes of every city, town, and village. From the moment an act of violence takes place, G‑d forbid, CTVP’s emergency response teams are there, forging an immediate bond with the victims and their families, bringing them financial, practical, emotional, and spiritual support as they struggle to reclaim and rebuild their lives.
Whatever the crisis, CTVP is there.During every war, during every terrorist attack, for decades, CTVP has been:
On the front lines, bringing soldiers hot meals and personal necessities, enabling them to put on tefillin as they prepare to go into battle.
In the bomb shelters bringing children treats and stuffed animals, as well as entertainment to take their minds off the fear and anxiety that fill their every waking moment.
At the bedsides of wounded soldiers bringing them comfort and practical help like IPads for those who will require long-term – and often painful – hospitalizations and rehabilitation.
With the families, providing babysitting, hot meals, and more so they can be at the bedsides of their loved ones in hospital.
With bereaved families, helping them with funerals, the shiva week, and the days and weeks following when the reality of their loss sets in.
We stay with all these families for as long as they need us – whether weeks, months or years. There is no end point to our help except the family’s ability to re-enter their lives successfully. Only then do we move quietly into the background, but still remain available for those times when the horror inevitably reasserts itself and help is needed once again.
This is what makes CTVP so unique, we are there for the long-term -- after the headlines – for as long as needed. For more information on CTVP, please visit ctvp.org.
