Israeli summers are scorchers, including this summer, right now. Most of us can take shelter in the shade, but not IDF soldiers.
They’re outside all day at checkpoints, on patrols, and on guard duty in the most dangerous places in Judea and Samaria.
On top of that, they’re not in shorts and tank tops; they’re in full battle gear!
Imagine how hot you would be in 100+ degree weather wearing pants, combat boots, an ammo vest, a helmet, a heavy backpack, and carrying a heavy-duty M16 assault rifle.
How could soldiers NOT be roasting?
God made a miracle. A couple of years ago, an Israeli chemist (and former IDF soldier) created a new substance.
This incredible white substance can be cooled down in 20 minutes and holds a 64-degree temperature for 2 hours. He called it “Quick Snow.”
He also knew that cooling the neck’s arteries, veins, and nerves can cool the whole body. Perfect for soldiers!
So he put the Quick Snow into protective plastic, nestled it into an insulated band, tested it with Israeli soldiers, and the rest is history.
After water, the Cool Collar is an Israeli soldier’s BEST FRIEND. It gives them physical relief from the blazing sun and lessens the danger of heat exhaustion.
But even more, it enhances soldiers’ physical stamina, alertness, and cognitive skills in the burning outdoor heat. That’s a real blessing for our terrorist-fighting warriors.
By donating a Cool Collar to an IDF soldier, you will fulfill Jeremiah’s Biblical prophecy:
“For he will be like a tree planted by the water that extends its roots by a stream,
and will not fear when the heat comes.” (Jeremiah 17:8)
Right now, Israeli soldiers are fearing the heat. When it’s boiling hot, they cannot guard, defend, and fight at their optimum.
They risk heat exhaustion, and when soldiers are exhausted, the People of Israel don’t have the protection we need from our enemies.
Without the Cool Collars, our beloved soldiers won’t have the strength, sharpness, and cool-headedness they need to protect the Holy Land.
For he will be like a tree planted by the water that extends its roots by a stream, and will not fear when the heat comes.
וְהָיָה כְּעֵץ שָׁתוּל עַל מַיִם וְעַל יוּבַל יְשַׁלַּח שָׁרָשָׁיו וְלֹא ירא [יִרְאֶה] כִּי יָבֹא חֹם וְהָיָה עָלֵהוּ רַעֲנָן וּבִשְׁנַת בַּצֹּרֶת לֹא יִדְאָג וְלֹא יָמִישׁ מֵעֲשׂוֹת פֶּרִי.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
It depends on where you live. Donations are tax-deductible in the USA and are processed by our non-profit Teach for Israel which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the USA.
How much of my donation goes directly to the cause and how much goes towards overhead costs.
You seem to have varied projects and causes. What is the underlying mission that connects all that you do?
How do I send a check (cheque) and who do I make it out to?

A letter from our founder, Rabbi Tuly Weisz
I started Israel365 in 2012 as an email to friends and family. The goal was to connect the Lovers of Israel with the Land and People of Israel, every day of the year.
“It is a land which Hashem God looks after, on which Hashem your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end.” (Deuteronomy 11:12)
Ten years later, Israel 365 has blossomed. We now bring the Land of the Bible into the homes and hearts of millions of Jews and Christians around the world. Our readers love our daily emails, our Israel Bible, and the causes we support. Our regular charity projects in Israel include renovating the apartments of Holocaust survivors, programs for IDF soldiers, and assisting terror victims financially. We also plant trees to beautify the Land, and support farmers who observe the Sabbatical (Shemittah) year.
Please join us and bring the blessings of the Land and People of Israel to the whole world.
“I will bless those who bless you…And all the families of the earth will bless themselves by you.” (Genesis 12:3)
