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.

But thanks to our donors, over 12,000 soldiers in need, including lone soldiers, have received Fellowship gift cards for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Soldiers will be able to purchase supplies such as food, clothing, shoes, sporting goods, and leisure products – helping them celebrate the holidays with dignity this year!

Among the soldiers receiving the Fellowship gift cards are 7,133 lone soldiers serving in the IDF today, including 53 percent who come from 80 countries around the world after making the brave decision to leave their home countries and families in order to enlist. More than half of all lone soldiers serve in combat or combat-support roles.

The Fellowship in partnership with the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) distribute Fellowship gift cards twice a year, during the major Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Passover.
