Last year, the members of the Young Israel of Holliswood donated over $7,000 to demonstrate the strength of our feelings for the Chayalim, which was used to provide them with assorted winter wear that warmed their hearts, as well as their hands, feet and other body parts, during the Israeli winter. We encourage each of you to demonstrate your gratitude to those who have sacrificed their well-being to defend our families, friends and fellows in Israel.
This year, once again, our Israel Committee is calling upon you to ‘adopt a soldier’ in Israel. Chanukah is the ideal time to warmly and graciously recall the sacrifices and noble contributions that our young Maccabis continue to make on behalf of our people. We suggest that each of our families donate $72 to sponsor supplemental winter wear for an Israeli soldier.
Many of you have experienced first hand, personally or through the videos posted on our website, the appreciation that these young men and women demonstrate as they are comforted with the knowledge that Jews around the world are supportive of the IDF efforts to protect Israel. Our contributions elevate their spirit and morale (in addition to their body temperature...).
We ask that you respond generously and quickly by dropping off your tax-deductible checks payable to: ‘Friends of Yashar LaChayal’ by December 1 at the shul office or give them to Alvin or Harold to be grouped once again as our Young Israel of Holliswood contribution. Thank you.
Alvin and Harold
