About the South Texas Chapter

Based in Houston, the FIDF Texas Chapter was founded in 2012 by Bryan Leibman, Glenn Lowenstein, and Richard Leibman. With a focus on fundraising and community outreach, we engage supporters and have events across the entire Lone Star State. Our Chapter hosts Israeli military leaders and IDF soldiers at community briefings, parlor meetings, synagogue and church outreach sessions, and much more. In addition to our Annual Gala, which raises north of half a million dollars, our Women’s Division and Young Leadership are very active in the pursuit of FIDF’s mission.

We have supporters from San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Houston, etc. and our donors are supporting 60 IMPACT! students in just five years.
