Save the Date: IDF Soldiers in Newton: There is an exciting program that will take place in our community the week of May 7th to 14th where the Beth El community will be hosting a unit of the IDF for an entire week. This is a program that will be run by an organization called Peace of Mind, which helps units of the Israeli defense forces who saw heavy battle to process and cope with their combat experiences. The program aims to cultivate a healthier transition from military to civilian life. The cost of the program is being funded by the Shemini Atzeret Israel Appeal of 2019. The program was originally scheduled for May of 2020, but was cancelled due to COVID. We look forward to hosting these soldiers in May of this year. During this week, there will be several events and opportunities where the community will be able to interact with the IDF soldiers. We will be looking for homes to host the soldiers for the week. Most of the meals will be outside of the host’s residence and instead at either our shul or in other locations. Look out for future updates regarding this unique and exciting event.
