About the Westchester / Connecticut Chapter

The Westchester and Connecticut Chapter of the FIDF was founded by Neil Ferranti, Joel Gardner, and Phil Jacobs. Now 2,000 strong, we have supporters ranging in age from 30-80 who reside across Westchester and Connecticut.  

Our chapter is a very big supporter of IMPACT! scholarships, as we love providing the promise for a brighter future to soldiers through education after their military services. The personal connections between donors and their students is truly heart-warming and unparalleled by any other program. Additionally, the Westchester and Connecticut Chapter has supported construction projects across Israel including a state-of-the-art gym at the Reem base in Gaza. We are proud to have adopted three battalions - Karakal, School of Field Intelligence and the Kfir Battalion.

In addition to hosting parlor events where supporters get to meet soldiers in the intimate setting of people’s homes, we have two annual Galas where we collectively attract north of 600 attendees and raise over $500,000.
