BLEG: Keep an IDF soldier warm

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!

Chag Channukah Sameach! (Support the #idf)

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.
