Friends of the IDF

Who we are?

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) is a non-political, non-military organization that provides for wellbeing of the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), veterans and family members. We are the single organization authorized to represent the IDF across the United States and Panama, as designated by Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, IDF Chief of the General Staff in March 2017 and by Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi, IDF Chief of the General Staff in February 2019. The Israeli government is responsible for training IDF soldiers and providing them with the necessary tools for their service. FIDF is committed to providing these soldiers with love, support, and care to ease the burden they carry on behalf of the Jewish community worldwide. Established in 1981 by a group of Holocaust survivors.

Cooperation with the FIDF

The FIDF’s connection and support for the IDF and the ultra-Orthodox soldiers has been possible for many years thanks to a professional connection with the Netzach Yehuda (Nahal Haredi) organization, and the FIDF organization’s broad support for the Haredi tracks in the IDF. In addition, the FIDF organization helps us build homes for lone soldiers as well as provide them with food and family throughout the military service.
