The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship) and Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) will provide “Fellowship Gift Cards” as holiday gifts to over 8,000 soldiers in-need and Lone Soldiers serving in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Over the past six years, FIDF and The Fellowship have provided almost $16 million of financial support to soldiers from low-income families.
The Rosh Hashanah gift card, in the amount of $70 per soldier, will allow the soldiers to celebrate the holiday without the burden of financial stress. The gift cards can be used in major retail chain stores across Israel to purchase food, clothing, shoes, sports and leisure products. Among the soldiers who will receive this financial support will be 2,800 Lone Soldiers, young men and women, from all corners of the globe, who have made aliyah and serve in the IDF.
