A group of brave young people from Taglit-Birthright Israel: Mayanot bus 720, joined with Chabad Terror Victims Project in a unique project, organized by CTVP, to bake challahs for Shabbat for the Israel Defense Forces soldiers.

These young people came to Israel despite the present dangerous situation and, with CTVP’s help, they had the opportunity to connect in a very special way with the worldwide Jewish family and especially with their brothers and sisters on the front lines. 

Rebbetzin Chaya Rochel Lieberman organized and oversaw the baking of the challahs which produced 65 mini challahs. Rabbi Yossi Swerdlov of CTVP spoke to the group, commenting to them on their courage and their solidarity with Israel by coming at this perilous time. 

The challahs were packed into bags with a bottle of wine and Shabbat candles provided by This was done with the help of Rabbi Yitzchak Minkowitz, his daughter Chaya, and his son Peretz Meir Simcha.

The bags were then distributed to the deeply appreciative soldiers at an undisclosed military outpost by Rabbis Swerdlov and Kutner of CTVP, the Minkowitz family, and Rabbi Menashe Perman, Chabad Shaliach from Santiago, Chile.

The group also distributed other foods, danced and sang with the soldiers, and helped them put on tefillin – all in an effort to show them the gratitude and love that the whole Jewish world has for them.

We pray for the safety of the soldiers and all the people of Israel. Shabbat Shalom.
