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.

Why you should support an Israeli soldier

Each night during my father's absence I would wait until my brother was asleep and the lights were out, and then I'd start crying - crying and praying. I was afraid that my father wouldn't come back, so I'd pray for his safe return.

Small blue bag, army boots, and olive green uniform, till today I remember my mom taking all these things from the top of a closet. This ceremony immediately informed me that father was leaving us for a few weeks to do his reserve duty as an Israeli soldier.

Each night during my father's absence I would wait until my brother was asleep and the lights were out, and then I'd start crying - crying and praying. I was afraid that my father wouldn't come back, so I'd pray for his safe return.

Time passed and I got married and became a mother, yet the feelings and fears I had as a child returned to me when my husband, Aviel, was called upon again and again to do his duty as a reserve soldier. Now it was I who reached to the top of the closet and brought down the blue bag, the army boots and the olive green uniform.

During my husband's reserve duty, it was up to me to survive, to maintain a fully function house and to take care of the kids on my own. Only now it occurs to me that I might not have been as sensitive to my children as I should have. I wonder if they, like me, waited each night for the lights to go out so they could cry and pray.

This is our sacrifice and the sacrifice of generations to come. IDF reserve duty and the confrontations with our neighbors that make it necessary are part of our lives. It has been this way since before Israel's declaration of independence, and unfortunately it continues till today.

With your kind assistance we have a chance to thank those who leave everything behind and go to defend our nation. By doing so we also let the concerned wives and children of these brave soldiers know that they are not alone in praying for the safe return of their husbands and fathers.

We thank you, our readers, for the warmth and support that you give to our loved ones.
