Do you know an IDF lone soldier from Broward County?

We know warm families in our partnership city that would love to be their home away from home!

Let’s make a “shidduch”

Some of our high-school graduates in Broward choose to serve in the IDF. As they leave their families behind and go on this brave journey in Israel, we want to make sure they are not alone. Our Partnership offers to pair adopting families in Nesher that will be there for them; invite them over for holidays, celebrate birthdays, attend their IDF ceremonies etc. Our warm, welcoming, and loving families in Nesher are honored to care for our brave souls for us.
