For the 13th year in a row, a delegation of seven reservists from the Israel Defense Forces called New and North Castles their “home away from home” during a 10-day visit this November. During their stay organized by Tzahal Shalom of Northern Westchester, the reservists attended many speaking engagements where they spoke about their experiences in the Israel Defense Forces. They spoke to every demographic in our communities: high school and middle school students, adults, seniors, college and university students, Jewish and non-Jewish alike.
During the program, the delegation begins to understand the support they have from our communities in Northern Westchester and returns to Israel with a renewed spirit and great pride. In return, our communities build relationships with these special individuals.
Tzahal Shalom of Northern Westchester has been bringing delegations to the community since 2006. They are a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, led entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers. For more information, visit tzahalshalom.org
