Chabad's Terror Victims Project (CTVP) is a non-profit, humanitarian organization that embodies the spirit, love, and compassion of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who was the guiding force behind its conception.

CTVP’s sole mission is to help victims of terror and war, and their families, throughout Israel.

With over 750 Chabad Houses across the length and breadth of Israel, we are within minutes of every city, town, and village in the country.

From the moment an act of terror takes place, G‑d forbid, CTVP’s emergency response teams are there. We forge immediate bonds with the victims and their families, bringing them financial, practical, emotional, and spiritual support as they struggle with the immediate situation – and as they strive to reclaim and rebuild their lives that have been shattered.

Whatever the crisis – terror or war related -  CTVP is there, on the ground, wherever needed – and for as long as needed. 

When an act of terror takes place, CTVP is with the victims and their families within a very short time of the attack. We are at the hospital with the family as they await the outcome of their loved one’s medical situation. We offer comfort and solace and provide whatever the family needs during this very difficult time, including carfare back and forth from the hospital.

If there are children at home, we ensure that babysitting services are provided and that hot meals, grocery shopping, and help with homework are taken care of.

If, G‑d forbid, there is a loss of life, we help with the funeral, shiva and all the arrangements that must take place at this time of heartache, pain and sorrow.

During every war, CTVP has been on the front lines, bringing soldiers hot meals and personal necessities. We offer them comfort and encouragement and enable them to put on tefillin as they prepare to go into battle.  

There are many soldiers and terror victims whose wounds require long-term hospitalization and rehabilitation and we remain with them throughout that time period, no matter how long it may be, helping them and their families.

We stay with all these families for weeks, months or years, whatever is best for their individual situations. There is no end to our help except the family’s ability to re-enter their lives successfully. Only then do we move quietly into the background, but 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 and for whatever is needed.
