The Fellowship Brings IDF Personnel to Seniors for Sukkot
The Fellowship | October 2, 2023
In partnership with Association for Israel Soldiers, senior facilities across Israel had help building sukkot (the temporary shelters build to remember the years the Israelites spent in the desert) to celebrate this holiday that promotes unity and looking out for others, reports Arutz Sheva:
In preparation for the Sukkot holiday, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) is working together with The Association for Israel Soldiers (HaAgudah Lem’an Hachayal) to help construct sukkot in senior homes all across the country.
The program saw representatives from the two organizations working to match groups of soldiers stationed at nearby bases with the staff of local homes for the aged, to help build sukkot in the hours before the holiday.
Yael Eckstein, President of IFCJ, thanked all the soldiers involved saying, “It’s so moving to witness our beloved young men and women in uniform contributing to their communities in such a meaningful way. Sukkot is a holiday about solidarity and looking out for others and it gives us great pride that this program allows us to do just that.”
