Inasmuch as The Israel Defense Force (IDF) is the only standing army in the world capabble of preventing te militant Islamic goal of establishing a caliphate covering an area beginning with Turky and going clockwise through the Middle East, Northern Africa, Europe and back to Turkey; it is iimportant that you participate with the IDF to show God and the world that you stand with Israel! If God so wished, He could eliminate the enemies of Israel before sundown today; however, He has chosen instead to always fight Israel's enemies through the IDF. In this sense, the soldiers occupy a holy position. In helping the IDF you will be choosing as God has chosen. A righteous thing to do! We, a retired couple who made aliya from Alaska many years ago, have been working the last four years solely on behalf of the IDF soldiers. We apply one hundred percent of all raised income to the purchase of the following: For winter: fleece jackets, gloves, neckwarmers, facemasks, thermal underwear, backpacks. For summer: camel back water containers, facemasks, dri-fit t-shirts, caps, backpacks. We ask only for $18 monthly on a continous basis. In Hebrew, the word 'chai' meaning 'life' also means the number 18. We are asking that you give 'life' to the soldiers who are risking their lives to protect Israel and your country as well.
