WHAT WE DO
M'ever LaYam assembles, ships, and delivers personalized care packages from America to Lone Soldiers and National Service Members in Israel.
Sent each Chanukah, packages can be sponsored by individuals, schools, synagogues, organizations. Over the last 5 years, we've delivered over 1,000 care packages filled with snacks from home and much needed supplies.
WHO WE ARE
M’ever LaYam, Hebrew for "across the sea", was originally developed with lone soldiers as partners in providing support to North American Jewry and to increase Diaspora Jews’ emotional attachment to Israel by creating connections with Lone Soldiers serving in the IDF. We do this by connecting soldiers and care package sponsors, ensuring a personal connection during holiday time.
HOW IT WORKS
Each October, we reach out to Lone Soldiers and invite them to fill out a Care Package request form for Chanukah. We then fundraise and match individual donors, student groups, synagogues and philanthropic organizations to soldiers. When we've reached our goal, we purchase goods, pack, ship, and facilitate delivery of care packages to the soldiers in Israel.
