Twice now, I had the great merit to appear before soldiers in the Rehabilitation Department of the Tel HaShomer Hospital, with the organization and assistance of the dear people who are now establishing the Foundation “For the Soldiers with Love”, whose goal is of the highest importance: to contribute to the warm and direct bond of the people of Israel and of the world with the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces.
On the heels of the Second Lebanon War, I think it is almost unnecessary to mention how important it is for our soldiers to know that the nation supports them. Not only with words, in a practical manner through the sending of gift packages via the internet website of the Foundation.
There is no doubt that this blessed effort will add confidence, encouragement, and support to the soldiers of the army, and deepen the connection between the nation and its soldiers.
I bless the Foundation for this wonderful initiative, wish it tremendous success, and hope that all of us will take part in this important endeavor.
