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!

Full disclosure: I am a volunteer member of this 501c3 charity’s Governing Board.

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.

Jewish AND in the Tea Party?

Then this is for YOU!

A Gadsden Flag kippa!  Suede with a nice, crisp “Don’t Tread on Me!” logo.


I am selling these for Chai – $18 each – including shipping and handling.  I know that’s a “chai” price – pun intended – but please consider this a contribution to my savings to travel to Eretz Yisrael as soon as I can afford it…. I am on the Governing Board of a charity in Israel that helps the IDF – Connections Israel.  Among other reasons for going I would really like to see the good work they’re doing.

Please reply in the comments with an email (e.g. emailid (at) xyz.com) and I’ll reply to you directly about the details for payment.
