Message from Amazia & Colonel Rapp
Panim el Panim - For Jewish Unity!
Dear members of RJC, Young Israel and HIR,
I was deeply moved to hear about the warm welcome you gave to the young hero Amazia Fensterheim last Shabbat! It is exactly that kind of devotion and connection to Am Israel we are working tirelessly to infuse within each and every IDF soldier we meet and work with. This generation of young Israelis is hungry for Devar Hashem (the Word of G-d), and we are excited to see these hints of Geula (redemption) every day and hour in Eretz Israel.
I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity and be part of Panim el Panim today. We run 220 Shabbat programs annually - a Rabbi spends Shabbat at an army base with 400 to 500 soldiers, giving Shiurim and spiritual Chizuk, and brings some special Oneg Shabbat treats for the Chayalim as well.
Sponsoring a Shabbat at a base costs only $500, and the IDF has agreed to let us run 450 Shabbatot annually!
Please join us for this effort now and help us double the number of IDF soldiers who hear Kiddush, sing Zmirot and Birchat Hamazon, learn about Parshat Hashavua and enjoy what we all know is essential for every single Jewish Neshama.
Chazak U'Baruch to all!
IDF Colonel (res.) Geva Rapp
Leader of Panim el Panim
