The Israeli government does what it can to care for her soldiers, but because of the threats she faces, Israel’s defense budget is stretched to its limit. Often soldiers simply don’t have enough money for extra holiday expenses.
This year during the Jewish holiday season, The Fellowship provided food and clothing to soldiers in need – learn more about the aid distributed to Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers here.
Among the soldiers receiving Fellowship aid are lone soldiers – who come from countries around the world after making the brave decision to leave their home countries and families in order to enlist. Since many lone soldiers don’t get to see their families during the holidays, they appreciate when The Fellowship provides them with extra holiday cheer, like these baked goods. It shows them that there are Christians and Jews around the world who stand with them!
