For this year’s Yom Yerushalaim (2015), we will be visiting units on bases around Jerusalem and celebrating with them.

We are looking for sponsors to help us cover the costs of these celebrations (barbecues, DJs, transportation), additionally we invite any and all groups in Israel to come with us during the week of Yom Yerushalaim to visit IDF bases.

This year we are hoping to reach the Tzanchanim(Paratroopers) unit 101 who helped conquer Jerusalem inch-by-inch in the 6-day war.

We look forward to bringing the party to the soldiers like we do every year. Please join us and assist us in reaching out to the soldiers
