FIDF’s Identity & Purpose programs conduct multiple courses for soldiers and commanders that focus on Jewish values and identity. Through seminars, workshops, discussion groups, and field trips, these programs allow soldiers to explore their Jewish identities and help them develop better personal and interpersonal skills.
Our Spiritual Needs programs hone in on soldiers’ values, faith, and love of Israel through activities focused on important Jewish traditions. Shabbat dinners and celebration of Jewish holidays allow soldiers to enjoy traditional customs while away from their families and homes. FIDF provides items such as shofars, prayer items, menorahs, Shabbat candlesticks, Purim packages, and more. Such spiritual support warms the soldiers’ hearts, strengthens their spirits during difficult times, and provides a piece of home and heritage.
