These have been challenging times in Israel. We are experiencing daily terror attacks non stop since Rosh Hashana. It has become our reality, our not so new new reality forced upon us by our enemies, some as young as 13 years old. During these times we are being protected, day and night, by our wonderful and brave IDF soldiers. Standing guard in near freezing temperatures, on the roads, in our cities and at checkpoints. These soldiers do their jobs diligently, professionally and courageously.
We must find a way to thank them. A way to give back. A way to say thank you for helping us sleep soundly at night. A way to say, we acknowledge your hard work and the fact that you risk your lives daily to protect us.
I have found a way and it’s through PizzaIDF. An amazing organization founded in 2010 by a released soldier wanting to give back to his comrades. They organize pizza nights at the base or in the field, festive bbqs, Chanukah parties and Mishloach Manot for Purim. They receive many requests from commanders in the field asking them to find a way to put a smile on their soldiers faces. Together with some wonderful volunteers, they distribute the pizza and treats to the soldiers as needed. But they need our help, now more than ever. Purim is just arround the corner and many of our soldiers will be guarding and not celebrating. Lets support our soldiers now and put a smile on their face, they deserve it!
