While millions of Jews around the world will be praying in the synagogue and celebrating the Jewish New Year, IDF soldiers will be on duty making sure Israel stays safe over the holidays. There are IDF soldiers who are choosing to stay on base over the holidays instead of spending it with their families and the reason they do so is horribly sad.

About Standing Together


Standing Together’s mission is to give the worldwide community an opportunity to show our appreciation to the young men and women of the Israel Defense Forces. Standing Together, run almost entirely by volunteers, includes as many people as possible in expressing gratitude to the soldiers who risk their lives everyday for the safety of the people, visitors and holy places of Israel. With our truck and Hospitality Trailer, Standing Together volunteers visit IDF soldiers regularly to offer support, gratitude, treats, hot and cold drinks and smiles. This encourages the soldiers to keep up their hard work. Standing Together is constantly looking for new ways to make a difference in the lives of those who make a difference in Israel.
