Helping the IDF Bring Back our Boys

The only thing that anyone of us here in Israel can think about is our kidnapped sons. People all over the world are davening for their safe return but it just doesn’t feel like enough. Standing Together,, decided to do what we do best, show the soldiers we care and appreciate them and their efforts on behalf of Klal Yisrael.
Thousands of soldiers have been deployed to Chevron and its surrounding area. As always, when IDF soldiers are deployed in an emergency situation, their accommodations are minimal, without the comforts of normal life, like fridges, laundry, etc. Fortunately for the soldiers, they are not too far from communities that truly understand the importance of what they are doing and many of them are being well fed, and taken care of by local volunteers.
Standing Together has the infrastructure already in place to support the soldiers, treat them well and show them our appreciation in the most efficient and effective way possible, because this is what we do all year long. It seems to have a little more urgency now. Standing Together’s hospitality trailer has been filled with cold drinks, ices and ice cream more than once this week. Then David Landau, Director and Founder, put out a call for volunteers to accompany him to visit the soldiers and personally thank them for their hard work in the search for our children.
A SWAT team outside of Chevron was most appreciative of the visit and the cold refreshment. Then the commander of 150 soldiers in a Canine Search and Rescue unit called and requested a visit as well. Next is a group of 500 soldiers currently between Bet El and Chevron. The list will continue as long as the soldiers need to be there. Standing Together donors have answered the call for funds and volunteers have answered the need as well.
