פעילויות הארגון

Otzma Camps

The Otzma Camps are for orphans from ages 6-18 and are held during the festival breaks on Sukkot, Chanukah, and Passover, as well as during the summer vacation.

Otzma Plus – The Empowerment Seminar

Otzma Plus is the general name for our community of orphans in the 19-29 year age bracket. This age group of orphans has needs that are different to the younger orphans, and they therefore require different services.

Medical Grants

IDFWO Organization provides medical grants to widows and adult orphans who require specialized healthcare. A considerable portion of the organization's annual budget is allocated to individuals who face such difficulties and have no one else to turn to for help.

Care Packages

Joining the IDF is a special moment for all Israelis, but holds particular significance for IDF orphans and their families. To show support for our orphans, we provide them with a special heavy-duty backpack with essential supplies they will need during their service.

Birthday Gifts

Every year, theTHE IDFWO Organization presents members with a gift for their birthday. The gift is delivered by mail to their most recent address as it appears in the organization’s database.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Delegation to North America

The bar and bat mitzvah delegation lets the orphans meet members of their peer group and become part of an actual community that will accompany and support them throughout their lives.

Enrichment Courses

Each year, the organization offers its members an array of excellent enrichment courses, which are subsidized by more than half their cost.

Rosh Hashanah Gifts

We continue our tradition of delivering a Rosh Hashanah gift for the home of each widow and adult orphan.

Gifts for First Grade

There is no doubt that the start of first grade is one of these milestones, and every year we are proud to present IDF orphans with a generous gift basket brimming with school stationery, notebooks, and other goodies, as well as a school bag.

Regional Activity – Building a Local Community

As part of the organization’s year-round activities, regional activities are held all around the country for widows and adult orphans. Currently, there are 15 regional activity centers throughout the country!

Event for Scholarship Awards and Wedding Gifts

Just as at any significant juncture in life, we take it upon ourselves at the organization to support the widows and orphans at this important time, by way of awarding study scholarships for bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and presenting a wedding gift to newly married couples.

They are fighting for our nation and existence.

Together we must take care of their families
