Have you ever fantasized about having a face-to-face meeting with the IDF Chief of the General Staff? Meeting the pilots of the F-16 fighter planes, and seeing a demonstration of their skills? You have the opportunity to realize these and many other fantasies on November 4, 2012 by participating in the FIDF's National Mission to Israel.
This mission brings together FIDF supporters from across the United States and Panama for a unique seven-day journey to Israel. In addition to touring the country and visiting the historic sites, participants of the FIDF Mission get to visit IDF bases. On these bases participants get to meet soldiers as well as some of Israel's top officials. They get to see first-hand FIDF programs and projects that benefit IDF soldiers across the country. This extraordinary mission to Israel will culminate with a special ceremony marking the powerful bond between the State of Israel and the Jewish community worldwide. This ceremony will salute the IDF soldiers and commanders, and pay tribute to FIDF's valued supporters.
The FIDF was established in 1981 by a group of holocaust survivors as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with the mission of providing and supporting educational, social, cultural, and recreational programs and facilities for the heroic men and women of the IDF. Today, FIDF has more than 120,000 loyal supporters, and 16 regional offices throughout the U.S. and Panama. FIDF proudly offers its support to the IDF soldiers and their families through a variety of unique and innovative programs. These opportunities reinforce the vital bond between the communities in the United States, the soldiers of the IDF, and the State of Israel.
