The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews led by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, in collaboration with the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel’s Soldiers, will provide their annual Rosh Hashanah Fellowship $125 gift cards to over 14,000 soldiers-in-need and lone soldiers who are eligible for aid in the Israel Defense Forces.

At the request of the IDF, the Fellowship approved an additional gift card of $65 to 4,500 soldiers-in-need who do not meet the criteria for vouchers but still are struggling to make ends meet this holiday season.

The gift cards can be used in major retail chain stores across Israel to buy food, clothing, shoes, sporting goods, and leisure products.
