Update on Our "L'Chaim to Tzahal" Evening!

I want to thank everyone who contributed to our L'Chaim to Tzahal initiative.

It was such a fun evening and I am so happy that we were able to pull it off and raise money to honour our brave soldiers.

We had a few false starts and a few leads on good uses of the money that didn't pan out, but my husband was relentless in the pursuit of the best way to do this, and after quite a number of phone calls and Facebook messages back and forth to various people and places in Israel, we found a great match.

We were able to buy multiple gift certificates, each for an amazing dinner for two at the Hamotzi restaurant in Jerusalem, and they are being distributed right now.

We made a wonderful arrangement with the owner of the restaurant, Avi Levy, so that soldiers can go out for a really nice dinner at his Hamotzi restaurant, so thanks to him as well for his generosity.

We are also working on one other component, and as soon as we have the details finalized I will post another update.

In the meantime, I would urge you to check out this article about Avi Levy and if you are in Jerusalem definitely check out his restaurant and spread the word.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to to honour our soldiers and we'll update you soon.
