Terror Victims Association
Terror Victims Association is the grass-roots movement spearheading the campaign against terrorism in Israel. The Terror Victims Association was founded in 1986 in response to the release of a thousand terrorists by the Israeli government of the time. Terror Victims Association became a support group composed of the victims themselves, whose aim was to provide support to each other in situations where help was not provided by government programs. Support groups are stretched to their limits to try and provide physical and emotional help to the victims and their families. Many political acts are undertaken to help the victims come to grips with their situation and help them release pent up tensions and resentment. There is also a program to find jobs for Russian immigrants. The Terror Victims Association has a work bank of over 4000 names and has been successful in matching hundreds of immigrants to appropriate and meaningful employment.
