ChanukahGiving: Showing Thanks To Our Modern Day Maccabees Featured

ChanukahGiving: Showing Thanks To Our Modern Day Maccabees


The overlap of Chanukah and Thanksgiving has made major headlines this year, sparking celebratory campaigns for Thanksgivukkah and the Menurkey. While for some the emphasis is on the turkey, ChanukahGiving is focused on emphasizing the giving of thanks and its connection to the historical events surrounding the Chanukah miracle.

ChanukahGiving encourages Jews from all over the world to acknowledge and appreciate our modern day Maccabees: the fighters in the Israel Defense Forces. Among these brave young men and women are the Lone Soldiers, Diaspora Jews who selflessly serve to defend and protect our Jewish Nation. There is so much that can be learned from their commitment to Israel, and The Lone Soldier Project of The Israel Forever Foundation is determined to inspire an Israel connection in others around the world through their stories.

In honor of this special holiday, on Thursday, November 28, 2013 at 7.30 P.M. (Israel Time), more than 500 soldiers will be treated to a special evening of traditional Thanksgiving and Chanukah foods.

People from around the world will be able to virtually participate in this event by joining in for a special candle lighting ceremony that will be live-streamed on www.israelforever.org. Family and friends will be also be invited to say hello and share their messages of encouragement and support during the holiday season.

So as we celebrate the beautiful festival of lights, and commemorate the Maccabean resistance, please join us in giving the gift of thanks.

Happy ChanukahGiving everyone - let the giving begin!
