THE IDF'S GREATEST NEED NOW
As you read this, IDF soldiers are engaging on multiple fronts to save lives and stand up to terror. Hamas continues to bombard Israel with nonstop rocket fire, threatening millions of Israeli lives. IDF soldiers are the crucial line of defense, ensuring Israelis remain safe and secure.
FIDF is on the ground day after day, addressing the ever-changing needs of soldiers, as part of an emergency fund delivering support to the men and women stationed along the Gaza border, and those soldiers responding to emergencies across the country.
