Description:
Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) is a government-independent American charity that provides "social, educational, cultural and recreational programs and facilities" for soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces, as well as the surviving family members of those who have died. It is the American partner of the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers (AWIS), an organization founded by David Ben-Gurion in 1942 to collect blankets for the Jewish Brigade, and currently the largest charitable organization in Israel.

Programs

FIDF maintains and constructs sports, cultural, recreational, and other such facilities across Israel, from Qiryat Shemona in the Golan Heights down to the far reaches of the Negev near Eilat. Seventeen of these projects have been completed while others are in the planning or construction phase. In addition to these centers, FIDF supports mobile units that serve similar functions for troops unable to use a permanent one. In another program known as "Spirit", FIDF supports weekly R&R for IDF soldiers at AWIS recreation facilities.
