Friends of the Israel Defense Forces annually distributes Mishloach Manot to IDF soldiers. This year, some 25,000 Mishloach Manot were distributed to soldiers across various brigades and battalions adopted by the organization.
“Supporting the IDF soldiers throughout the year is the cornerstone of our organization,” said FIDF National Director and CEO Maj. Gen. (Res.) Meir Klifi-Amir. “It undoubtedly improves the morale of the soldiers and brings smiles to their faces.”
