WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The Obama administration is seeking avenues to assist Israel in combating raging forest fires in its north.

"I want to begin by offering our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all of those who've died as a result of the terrible forest fire in northern Israel," President Obama said Thursday evening, launching the annual White House Chanukah party. "As rescuers and firefighters continue in their work, the United States is acting to help our Israeli friends respond to the disaster."
