8,000 IDF Soldiers Receive Chanukah Gift Vouchers from the Fellowship and FIDF

IFCJ’s Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein; FIDF’s Ifat Bechor; and AWIS’s Avigdor Kahalani, lighting Chanukah candles with Lone Soldiers on December 10th, in the South of Israel.

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (the Fellowship) and Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, in collaboration with the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel’s Soldiers, are providing “Fellowship Gift Vouchers” as Chanukah gifts to over 8,000 IDF Lone Soldiers and soldiers in need. The IDF soldiers will receive gift cards that can be used in major retail chain stores across Israel to purchase food, clothing, shoes, sports and leisure products. There are currently over 5,700 Lone Soldiers serving in the IDF as well as over 4,500 soldiers entitled to receive financial support.

In total, both the Fellowship and FIDF will invest more than 5 million shekels (over $1.4 million) this year to support this worthy project.
