30,000 Jewish troops in the US military – SUPPORT OUR TROOPS THIS NEW YEAR

This past week our nation suffered the loss of 13 heroes who died trying to evacuate fellow Americans stranded in Afghanistan. (Scroll down to see names and pictures of those we lost). There will come a time for us to investigate how and why this happened, and there will come a moment for us to respond in kind to the murderers who perpetrated this crime. As a visceral sense of overwhelming grief begins to overtake us, feelings of helplessness can sometimes creep in. What can we ACTUALLY DO at this difficult time for our troops? The clear answer is support. Show the troops that fight for our freedom, that you have their back and always will.

JFAM aids literally thousands of deployed Jewish service members and they need our support now. In response to the the current geo-political ongoing operation, numerous Rabbi Chaplains have been deployed to multiple locations in the Middle East. Jewish military communities in Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, and Jordan will have services supported by JFAM – as a direct result of your donations.

This year, as we all stand in prayer, be proud that you have afforded kosher food, holiday services and aid to these heroes. Backing our Jewish troops is not just a highly impacting good deed… a Mitzvah, it is a patriotic duty that shows our troops you care. So please help us now, Jewish Service Members need your support.

There are over 30,000 Jewish troops in the US military, and much like our brothers and sisters in the IDF (Israel Defense Force), their needs are overwhelming and immediate. Whether it be desperately requested High Holiday programming on bases, Jewish camp experiences for military children, or kosher burial services, there is a tremendous need.

As Rosh Ha’Shana approaches, please donate to our heroes. The time is now

Operation Deployed

JFAM spearheads Operation Deployed which provides a box of Kosher essentials for hundreds of military members and their families. The Military falls far short of provide for the Kosher needs of our Jewish personnel. Therefore, it falls to us to provide for our Brothers and Sisters in uniform. Thanks to the graciousness of our various partners, each box costs only $75.00 and the demand grows day by day. What better way to show our appreciation for our Jewish troops?
