Help us provide food vouchers and monetary assistance to IDF soldiers to help them celebrate the holidays with joy

A few years ago one of Yad Eliezer's volunteers heard from an IDF soldier that the young man would not be returning home for Pesach. He knew that while he might be lonely on base, there would be food to eat. Whereas if he returned home to his widowed mother, her meager income would not be enough to feed both of them properly. Yad Eliezer quickly arranged food vouchers for the family that would assure that their holiday table would not be lacking. However we soon realized that this was not the only family in service that was suffering from privation.

For the past three years Yad Eliezer has been providing food vouchers and monetary assistance to IDF soldiers to help them celebrate the holidays with joy. The response has been astounding. The thank you letters show the tremendous appreciation that these young men and their families feel.

This Pesach we would like to increase our efforts and provide $200,000 of aid to 1,500 soldiers. We have received a generous matching offer, and if we are able to raise $100,000, the donor will add another $100,000 and help us to reach our goal. By donating now your dollar is worth double! Help us to show IDF soldiers how much we appreciate their dedication and give them the most joyous holiday ever!
