The IDF Widows and Orphans Organization was founded in 1991 as the sole organization recognized by the State of Israel to represent the widows and orphans of Israel’s fallen Defense and Security Forces.
Today, we work with over 8,000 women, men, and children whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our homeland, by providing them with essential financial and emotional support.
As a non-profit organization, we would not be able to do this work without the help of our generous supporters from around the world.
Join us for an entertening comedy night benefiting IDF widows and orphans! Featuring a live performance from Comedian Joel Chasnoff.
150 scholarships will be granted to IDF orphans. Join us for an online event to support our students.
IDF orphans will be traveling to Eliat for a 5 day camp experience.
