“My involvement with FIDF Young Leadership provides me with a passionate community of friends who all love Israel. It is an honor to support Lone Soldiers, like my brother, during and after their military service. Young Leadership provides a clear path to stand with IDF soldiers from afar.”

“Supporting FIDF means making sure that those who are protecting Israel are taken care of physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We cannot take them for granted and FIDF gives me the opportunity to show my gratitude and give back. YL also provides me the opportunity to connect with other like-minded individuals who support Israel here in NYC. It’s also a community where I met my husband and many great friends!”
