Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) from all areas of the Commonwealth of Virginia will gather for the first-ever FIDF Virginia Chapter Gala to support well-being and educational programs for the IDF soldiers.

Co-chaired by Joel and Emily Nied, the inaugural gala will focus on 70 years of heroes and hope. It also will showcase FIDF’s programs supporting Lone Soldiers— those who join the IDF with no immediate family in Israel—as well as the IMPACT! Scholarship Program, which grants fouryear academic scholarships to combat and support soldiers from challenging socioeconomic backgrounds.
