Congregants at a synagogue in the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island pledged more than $1 million at a fundraiser for Israel.

The money raised at the Aug. 9 gathering following Shabbat at The Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach will go to the UJA-Federation of New York’s Israel Emergency Fund, which assists organizations that provide medical treatment and economic support for Israelis in the wake of conflict.

“I am humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude and pride over the show of support by our congregation, that realizes the depths of the trauma — of the pain and suffering of Israelis — and reached deep to help however they could during this tragic and terrible crisis,” the synagogue’s rabbi, Marc Schneier, said in a news release.
