Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!

Katie and I are in the midst of raising funds for our B'nai Mitzvah project which benefits FIDF (Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces).  Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.

We got to visit one of the Israeli military camps when we were in Israel with our extended family this past summer.  We spent time with soldiers in the 74th "Saar" (Tempest) Armored Battalion of the 188th "Barak" (Lightning) Armored Brigade  Their facilities are nothing like a US military base.  The focus there is on efficiency and doing more with less ... way less.  The camp was very (and we mean very) basic.  Sand, cinder block housing, rough facilities.  We posted some pictures from our trip on this page.

But it dawned on us that we could make a difference in the lives of these soldiers who are defending the Jewish Homeland by providing some diversions and comforts.  So we are raising money for things like ping pong tables and gaming consoles.  

​Please help us by donating to this effort.  Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
