About the Palm Beach / Broward Chapter

The Palm Beach/Broward Region was founded in 2003. Located in Boca Raton, our office serves all of south Florida except for Miami/Dade County. We are 3,000 supporters strong and are made up of professionals and retirees from a range of communities.

Our Region hosts a variety of activities including an IDF Musical Ensemble event and outreach events at synagogues and country clubs, often featuring high-level dignitaries and representatives of the IDF. Our most recent Annual Regional Solidarity Gala Dinner attracted over 600 people and raised $1.65 million.

We are deeply committed FIDF’s mission and over the years, we have helped fund several construction projects. We have also adopted IDF units, including the Golani brigade. Education is a large focus for the Palm Beach/Broward Region and we have raised more than $5 million for the IMPACT! Scholarship Program; we have supported hundreds of IMPACT! students and are currently sponsoring 350 students. Through generous contributions, we are also proud to support the soldiers, widows, and orphans of Israel.
