My name is David Landau. I am almost seventy two years old and not computer savvy. I started Standing Together more than twenty years ago. In my travels along the roads of Yehuda and Shomron, I saw young men and women in the IDF guarding and patrolling. I felt the need to show my gratitude to them so late one night I bought some pizza and soda and drove to Rachel's Tomb in Bet Lechem. I knew that there was a continuous presence of our soldiers on guard duty there. I pulled up to the first soldier and gave him the treats. He asked me who I was, what I was doing there, who sent me and how much does it cost. My answer surprised him when I said that I just wanted to thank him for what he was doing. I was on a "high" and the rest is history.
I purchased a small trailer, then a bigger one, and then an even bigger one to distribute treats to as many soldiers as possible. Twenty years later we now have a state of the art hospitality truck driven and managed by my son Rami. The truck contains ovens, freezers and a popcorn machine. We are able to service over 1000 soldiers each trip. We have come a long way since that first night.
Many of our young volunteers told me the impact that social media has with the ability to reach so many people.
We need your help to spread the word in order to keep the hospitality truck running on a daily basis. Our overhead is minimal with no salaries or office space.
