Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF)

The Jeff Astor Foundation has had the privilege of sponsoring a child to travel to the United States, enjoy summer camp activities, meet their American peers, tour famous sites and form lifelong friendships.

The FIDF’s Legacy Program provides support for families of fallen soldiers. The Jeff Astor Foundation has contributed specifically to the LEGACY BAR/BAT MITZVAH PROGRAM which provides children the opportunity to connect with peers who have also suffered the terrible loss of losing a parent.  Legacy Bar/Mitzvah children celebrate becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah by traveling to the United States for an amazing 10 day trip.
