Meir Mishkoff a”h had a tremendous love for the land of Israel, the people of Israel and especially the soldiers of Israel. Since this mishloach manot campaign's inception, 20 years ago, Meir worked tirelessly to ensure that tens of thousands of IDF soldiers would be able to experience the true joy of Purim and to show them the constant support they have from Jews all around the world. In light of Meir’s unexpected passing in 2017, the campaign is being dedicated in his memory and with your help we will continue his mission of displaying our support to our soldiers in Israel.
About American Friends of IDF Rabbinate
Mission Statement: The American Friends of the IDF Rabbinate was established to support the religious, education and welfare activities and projects of the IDF Rabbinate. Working closely with the Office of the IDF Chief Rabbi and key department heads and Command rabbis, the AFIDFR provides key support and solutions to problems in real time. All donations to IDF Rabbinate needs are in full coordination with the relevant IDF authorities and Yachad LeMa’an HaChayal.
Due to the ongoing war in Israel, we are offering a few different opportunities to help provide Purim simcha to displaced families from the North and South of Israel in addition to IDF soldiers across the country.
We will also be supporting vendors directly affected by the war as much as possible.
Unfortunately, based on the current situation, we are unable to offer delivery of Mishloach Manot to family and friends living in Israel this year.
Deadline is March 15, 2024
100% of proceeds to benefit projects of the IDF Rabbinate
Please take full advantage of the additional options at this critical time for Am Yisrael.

We are cadets serving on a seamanship course that is currently sailing on the missile ships of the 3rd Fleet in the Navy called Achi Spear. We were very excited and happy to receive the mishloach manot delivery! A sweet moment reminding us that people are thinking of us as we serve for a month at the base without leave. It warmed our hearts. Thank you!
