Purim is just around the corner, and IDF soldiers break out into smiles when they get a gift basket from Connections Israel.
For $15 you can give a basket for one soldier. For $450 you can give an entire unit of 30 soldiers baskets.

Please consider this 501c3 charity in your giving.
Full disclosure, I’m not much of a beer person – not really a drinker at all, actually. But on the basis of this ad, I’m switching on the (rare) occasions I drink beer. A company that so openly supports our soldiers has my business on that basis alone.
For only $90, donate a fleece jacket to an IDF soldier. It’s simple, it’s easy, and not only does it help an individual, the money goes to Israel’s economy. And it’s tax-deductible!

Passover is coming soon. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to Connections Israel so that IDF soldiers on duty can celebrate.

Tonight will be the first night of Channukah, and for the first time my children have their own Menorahs to light. But in looking online for Channukah images – at my daughter’s request – I found this Menorah:
I am conflicted:
- On one hand, it’s probably the tackiest thing I’ve ever seen, and highly irreverent
- On the other hand, it’s imaginative and certainly captivating to kids
And for Channukah, please support the IDF. I now wear my support for Israel’s military. Will you join me ($5 donation to www.connectionsisrael.com, a 501c3 charity) gets you this bracelet. Or perhaps a fleece coat?
Like I said, I wear my support for the IDF. And in full disclosure, I’m on the Governing Board of Connections Israel. That’s how serious I am about this charity.

Chris Mintz is the Army veteran who was shot at the Oregon Community College; he attempted to block the door as the shooter opened fire. Mintz was shot seven times and will need extensive therapy to recover.
This is a man who put his life at risk to save others, and doubtless did. Thus, he is an application of the wisdom: “He who saves a life shall be counted as though he saved the whole world.”
I encourage you to go and give what you can.
I am on the Governing Board of Connections Israel, an approved non-profit in both the USA and in Israel. Thus, I not only contribute, but am lending my name to this excellent organization.
We are driving to provide care packages to IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) troops for the holiday of Purim, when Persian schemers attempted to destroy the Jews there. The story of the Jews’ success in foiling the schemes and plots is particularly relevant today.
If you’ve enjoyed my Job Search Article Aggregates, my Jobs In New England posts, or even chuckled at all the various humor I’ve posted including my anti-diet pictures… please do consider contributing.
Notice: This will repeat until Purim is over.
