FIDF raises funds to care for the well-being of Israel's soldiers - their educational, social, recreational, spiritual, and cultural needs. FIDF’s efforts aid thousands of IDF soldiers in multiple ways including: economic support through the DIGNITY program, a much-needed week of rest and relaxation through the SPIRIT program, flights home for Lone Soldiers, and a host of other vital well-being needs. Ultimately, the Young Leadership Gala enforces that while their job is to look after Israel, our job is to look after them. FIDF’s Adopt-a-Brigade Program supports thousands of IDF combat soldiers in a multitude of ways - strengthening their morale and letting them know they are cared for not just in Israel, but throughout the world. YL-NY continues to adopt the Iron Trails Armor Brigade and is committed to providing economic support to soldiers. It is our goal to provide for these needs by raising $750,000 for the Iron Trail Brigade at this year’s gala.
