The belonging
The fundamentalist fighters first and foremost on volunteerism and the mission. Gratitude
The responsibility and duty to protect, in turn, the existence of life and home.
Not to get the pick of fighters in service, demanding and dangerous. But of course, they are entitled, from the company’s building in Israel and all of the Jewish people throughout the world, respect and gratitude. Dedication and courage of the IDF fighters also repeatedly discovered
The last war – the second Lebanon war – which once again demonstrated the generation of two thousand and six that is falling from generations of fighters that preceded it, and it costs them.

The Foundation’s donation directly impacts on society in Israel and promotes growth and development of an educated society, contributing more and more involved.
I see great importance it
That this initiative has grown and kinesiology in the Jewish community in the United States and the rest of the diaspora. There
That, to me, a true expression of the centrality of Israel in Jewish identity, Jewish life and Jewish solidarity they provided and to continue our existence as a nation. At the same time
Here’s to being a focal point of identification of the IDF and Jewish pride. These offerings – a scholarship to acquire higher education – is an expression of attitude to the Jewish property to escape.
Therefore I know thanks to all who contributed and contributes to the existence of overshadowing serious concerns and blessed it; All those open door and hearts before IDF fighters come to the Association for
The other soldier and the Jewish world figures in Israel who joined together to think
