Rosh Hashanah Gifts
The IDFWO Organization sends New Year's gifts to IDF widows and orphans every year.
Nava Shoham Solan, former IDFWO Chairwoman and active Member in the organization said:
"After Ra'anan [my husband] was killed, holiday gifts from his work stopped coming. Those gifts heralded the holiday spirit, and demonstrated the absence of loss even more. This is why one of the first things I did when I took the job [as Chairwoman] was to start a tradition in which all IDF widows get a luxurious gift to usher in the Jewish New Year. Because of this gesture, the holiday spirit has returned to thousands of homes of IDF widows and orphans. With this gift, they truly feel the sense of warmth and community that the organization brings to their lives".
