Fundraise for Lone Soldiers
B’nai Mitzvah Program
Often, it’s the men and women serving in the IDF from whom we draw inspiration. But we are inspired too by young men and women celebrating their bar and bat mitzvahs who decide they want to mark these special occasions in their lives to lead fundraising campaigns to help Lone Soldiers. For our B’nai Mitzvah Program, young men and women can make a general donation or pick a specific cause, such as Shabbat dinner, housing, Passover Seders, and pre-army training. To set up an individual fundraising campaign to celebrate an upcoming Simcha, please click on Bar/Batmitzvah Chesed Project under the ‘Get Involved’ tab at the top of the home page, or email email@example.com.
Lone Soldier Shabbat
Pre-COVID synagogues across the country hosted Lone Soldier-themed Shabbats. Until large gatherings are able to be held again we encourage you to host a “Lone Soldier Shabbat”, choosing a weekend and asking congregants to make that Shabbat in honor of Lone Soldiers. Congregants can donate the amount that would have been spent on dinner, a bottle of wine or a bouquet towards Shabbat dinner for lone soldiers! What better way for your community to help provide a sense of community for lone soldiers than to give them a Shabbat dinner to gather, to eat and to talk. Once we do begin to host larger gathering we can help arrange for a current or former lone soldier to speak at your congregation’s shabbat meal, giving them first hand a more complete understanding of the Lone Soldier experience.
If your congregation is interested in hosting a Lone Soldier Shabbat, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring The Michael Levin Lone Soldier Foundation to your community. We will work with you to help design an event specific to your needs, deepen your community’s connection with IDF Lone Soldiers, and raise money to support them.
If you’re interested in hosting a parlor meeting, please send an email to email@example.com.
Want to host a video event with Mark and Harriet Levin, or a lone soldier, or show “A Hero in Heaven” to your members or friends? We can help you set that up, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
