Even though it doesn't feel like winter in my neck of the woods yet, I know it's not far off. And I am so grateful that we have warm blankets, sweaters, coats, tights - all that we need to stay warm.
I recently heard that there are groups of soldiers who do not have warm coats issued to them. Apparently, there is a lack of funding fothem.
So I am taking a break from my usual food and money-saving talk, to ask you to consider joining in the International Young Israel Movement's Campaign to buy warm, weatherproof jackets for a group of soldiers.
More information below:
While we are warm on winter nights a group of 300 brave Israeli
soldiers are protecting the Tomb of the Patriachs in the city of our
forefathers - Hebron. These brave young men and women neither
sleep nor slumber on duty. They are in need of water proof fleece
jackets (Cost=$70). This is your opportunity to partner with us in
showing our appreciation!
