Adopt-a-Soldier: Kfar Yona Soldier Collection
Kfar Yona, Israel: Our Sister JCC
Established in 1932 and located in central Israel, Kfar Yona is home to a thriving community center or 'Matnas' that is the Sister JCC to the Merage JCC. We have a unique and special relationship with Kfar Yona Community Center, exchanging visits between staff and teens over the years. We look forward to continued exchanges and friendship in the future.
To honor Kfar Yona teens who are beginning their service in the Israel Defense Force, we have established the Adopt-A-Soldier Project. With your help, we are creating packages for soldiers as they embark on their military service.
