About the Southeast Region
The Southeast Region was found in 2007 and is currently over 1,600 strong. We are made up of families from Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
Our region supports a wide range of FIDF efforts including Adopt-A-Brigade, Lone Soldiers and, Fallen and Wounded Soldiers. The Southeast Region recognizes the important role the intelligence community plays in Israel’s safety and security and therefore adopted the Combat Intelligence Corps, responsible for intelligence reconnaissance on the ground. We provide crucial well-being funds and stand with them through brigade milestones, holidays, and more. We have also funded over 80 IMPACT! students and will have 63 more enrolled in 2017.
The signature Atlanta Annual Gala attracts over 500 people and raises half a million dollars. In addition, we host many donor appreciation events and FIDF educational events through our local synagogues. In 2012, Atlanta launched a Young Leadership Division for young professional, ages 20 to 40.
