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.

Serving in the IDF Comes With Real Dangers

Everywhere you go in Israel… in the mall, on the bus or standing in line at the falafel shop, you’ll see young people just out of high school, dressed in an army uniform.

While most American 18-year-olds are thinking about going to university or getting a job, their peers in Israel are serving in the Israel Defense Force. Some are patrolling our borders and checkpoints, serving as medics or gathering intelligence, among many other units.

Even in “quiet” times in Israel, there will always be a risk of danger. Now, the terrorist group, Hamas, is calling on terrorist groups to kidnap IDF soldiers.

Senior Hamas leader Salah al-Bardawil urged terrorists participating in a rally in Gaza, to kidnap IDF soldiers. Typically, kidnapped soldiers are used as “bartering chips” to get the state of Israel to release hundreds of terrorists back into society.

According to Major General Avi Mizrachi, who served as the Head of the Central Command in 2009-2012, “Since November [2012] we have foiled 18 attempts by Hamas and Fatah men to abduct Israeli citizens.”

Despite the rise in danger, Israeli soldiers continue to do their job and foil terrorists’ plots.
