FIDF Base Visits

“Highlight of our visit!” “The kids didn’t want to leave!” “Really, what a special part of our trip.” Nope, they’re not talking about the Harry Potter exhibit at Disneyworld. This testimony all refers to visits that our donors and their families have made to IDF bases while on vacation in Israel. And you too can have that special opportunity. Get a tour of the facilities, see the soldiers in action during training exercises, and meet and thank our soldiers in the place that they call home while in service. Contact your local region for more information, and take your next trip to Israel to new heights.

Testimonials


"Meeting your wonderful group has done more for us than we could ever put into words."

- Yoav Schaefer, IDF Lone Soldier from California


"There are very few feelings you can have that match the feeling coming from a trip like that. It’s being on the front lines, it’s being in their rooms and tents, it’s eating with those soldiers. They are amazing kids. And they are kids."

- Kenneth Fishman, FIDF Supporter from Massachusetts


"What I experienced this week with all of you will forever be a part of me. I sat on the plane and found myself reflecting on it all and I just started weeping. I could not have had a higher honor than to have shared it with all of you. I feel I have made friends for life and, more importantly, formed a connection with Israel."

- Brett Shapiro, FIDF Supporter from Florida


"There’s no better way to see Israel… I guarantee you a trip of a lifetime!"

- Adam Tantleff, FIDF Supporter from New York
