More than 1000 soldiers enjoyed great Purim packages sent by people from all over the world.
Several hundred of the packages were delivered to army bases by Thank Israeli Soldiers' volunteers - very enthusiastic groups of young men and women studying in Israel for the year. The singing and dancing of the young Israelis and students was boisterous and fun, making for an incredible celebration.
The hearts, souls and bodies of the soldiers were warmed by the outpouring of love and caring as can be seen in these photos. Thank you to everyone who donated to make this a special Purim, and a very special thank you to Jesse Liebman of New York who sent more than 400 packages for his Bar Mitzvah project.
