We’re celebrating our modern-day heroes this Chanukah!

Join us every night at 8 p.m. (3 pm on Friday before Shabbat) for “8 Nights with Israel’s Guardians,” an exclusive candle lighting event with IDF soldiers and Jewish actors. Each night will feature a different theme and FIDF LIVE episode, helping us recognize the far-reaching impact soldiers have on Israel and world Jewry.

The Maccabees faced obstacles with fortitude and conviction to fulfill their mission: securing Jewish freedom. Now, centuries later, those very same character traits empower thousands of IDF soldiers, the modern-day heroes who protect our people.

This Chanukah, you have an opportunity to meet the increasing and evolving needs of thousands of soldiers. Be their light.

Will you be a light during our season of miracles?
