Soldiers Winter Package

Your Price:   $36.00
Sku:   KOI019

Although the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), as the name suggests, is primarily a defensive army, our soldiers place their lives at stake on a daily basis. Over time, almost every family has lost relatives in defense of the Promised Land.

Protection and preservation can come only from the Almighty but we can show our appreciation of the efforts of our soldiers and reservists. Let us show our men and women in uniform that we stand behind them, in prayer AND in deed! In the coming weeks, we are planning to distribute Winter Packages for 'our children' - our soldiers! (The majority of IDF soldiers are young men and women just out of school.)

This Winter, our lovingly-prepared Package contains the following items:

  • A Sweat Shirt
  • A Chamtzavar - a multifunctional apple-warmer that can also be used as a hat
  • Warm Socks - to keep the soldiers' feet toasty!
  • Shoe Deodorant
  • Regenerating Hand Cream
  • Medical Lip Balm

Give your gift today for a Soldiers Winter Package, and let the forces know that there are very special people who care, and appreciate their sacrifice and their duty.

Female IDF Soldiers Set Example For Their US Counterparts

The United States has decided to lift the ban on women in combat units. Women have served on Israel's front lines for almost 20 years.

United States Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced on January 24th that the ban on women in  front-line jobs and elite commando positions is to be lifted, opening more than 1,400 positions to female soldiers. The services have until May to submit implementation plans for full integration on January 1, 2016.

Israel is a country with a long experience of women in the front lines. In 1995, Alice Miller, a civilian pilot and aeronautical engineer, sued the Israeli Air Force sued for the right to have the chance to become a military pilot.  She won the case and since then, more combat-related jobs have been opened up for women in the Israeli military.

Now, women can try out for 90 percent of all military professions.  Today, women make up about four percent of Israel’s combat forces, according to the military.

These women work long hours and are often vilified the world over for protecting their country. You can be a blessing to an Israeli soldier this winter by purchasing a special care package that is certain to warm our troops as they not only defend us, but face harsh weather conditions.
