EMBRACING OUR SOLDIERS AT OZ VeGAON
It’s winter in the Judean hills, south of Jerusalem, and it's freezing cold.
It’s the middle of the night.
There is a place in Gush Etzion where our soldiers can come for a hot drink 24/7 – the Oz VeGaon Nature Reserve, above the Gush Etzion junction.

Since the establishment of Oz VeGaon in 2014, in memory of Gil-ad, Eyal, and Naftali, the three teenagers killed by terrorists, Oz VeGaon has become a thriving educational and Zionist center, attracting thousands and strengthening our connection with the Land of Israel.
IDF soldiers and security forces serving in the region come to visit the Coffee Corner at Oz VeGaon every day of the week, day and night, where they can enjoy a light break in preparation for their next mission.
During the week, we provide hot and cold drinks and snacks, and on Shabbat mornings the soldiers are invited to join our Kiddush for kugel, cake and drinks.
Oz VeGaon also has an air-conditioned tent for soldiers with a kitchenette and refrigerator. All this is done thanks to your donations.
This is our small way of expressing all our love and appreciation to our soldiers and security forces, who devote their lives to keep us safe!
In order to be able to continue to provide this important expression of love for our soldiers, and to expand it, we invite you to join in this project.
Your contribution will enable us, to continue to purchase – cups, plates, silverware, cookies, cakes, and drinks – and to maintain and upgrade the equipment - the hot water urns, coolers, fridges, and tent.
The monthly cost comes out to around 9000 NIS or about $3000 a month.
In this campaign, we would like to start by raising funds for the coming 3 months, i.e. 27,000 NIS or about $9000.
With your help, we will please G-d succeed.
