Letters, Breakfast, Blankets and More: LSP Update

Tags: Soldiers and Defense, Diaspora

Over the past several months, our awareness programming has really taken off, and we are very excited about our new campus involvement. So many wonderful things are happening to connect people looking to learn more and support the Lone Soldiers in the IDF with their words of encouragement, donations and more. We continue to work closely with the Lone Soldier Center in Memory of Michael Levin through letter writing campaigns, fundraisers and the donations of backpacks, blankets and more.

We kicked off the Jewish New Year with our "Shana TODA” Notes for Soldiers Campaign, and gathered over 200 messages from nine countries. A big thank you to all who contributed!

The University of Wisconsin-Madison held a “Breakfast for Dinner” event to support the Lone Soldier Project. The Jewish community joined together to learn about LSP and tie fleece blankets that will be sent to the soldiers.

The George Washington University Hillel included the Lone Soldier Project in their recent Israel Shabbat and welcomed a former Lone Soldier to speak to their group of 95 about his experience in the IDF.

Thanks to LSP, a Boston birthright trip is meeting with a Lone Soldier and the Lone Soldier Center on their upcoming trip to Israel.

Last but not least, we joined the young professional LEADS group through Boston’s Combined Jewish Philanthropy to learn more about the lives of Lone Soldiers while writing notes of support and recording voice messages. Read more about this wonderful evening!

For those of you in DC, we are hosting a “Books and Brews” event on Wednesday as part of our book drive to collect English reading materials for Lone soldiers.

We hope to see you there!

We are continuing to expand and would love for you to join the team. Please feel free to contact me to learn more!

Thank you, as always, for your ongoing support.
Chag Sameach!
