Looking to support lone soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces while possibly getting some whiskey out of it?
A few whiskey connoisseurs have come together to give away five tasty bottles of whiskey in support of M’ever LaYam‘s 2023 Purim Care Package drive supporting 200 lone soldiers.
In the giveaway are two bottles of Rossville Union “Kings of Kiddush” Rye, one bottle of M&H “Sababa” Single Malt finished in Pomegranate wine cask, one bottle of Sagamore Spirit Rye (6 year barrel Select), and a 2019 William Larue Weller from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
This year, there was an overwhelming response from soldiers for these care packages, and more money is needed to make sure every soldier gets their requested snack box (mishloach manot) for Purim, the holiday celebrating Jewish triumph over genocide in ancient Persia. Each $48 donation sponsors one package and equals one entry into the whiskey giveaway. You can sponsor as many packages as you’d like until all remaining care packages have been sponsored. All donations are tax-deductible.
You just need to enter by this coming Sunday, February 26th. Winners will be announced the day before Purim (Sunday, March 5th). To enter, you just need to sponsor a care package.
Lone Soldiers come from all over the world to serve and protect all of Israel’s inhabitants, regardless of religion. They leave behind their communities, friends and family to live in a new place far away from home. M’ever LaYam sends packages of the things they miss most (and can’t get in Israel) to help them stay connected and feel cared for during this part of their journey.
M’ever LaYam revolutionized care packages for lone soldiers by cutting through the red tape and bureaucracy to send the most requested American products to Israel. Delivered every Chanukah, each care package includes a personal letter written by students and community members from the soldier’s hometown. This annual campaign brings happiness, comfort, and joy during Chanukah and a boost to the morale of soldiers serving so far away from their families.
