US, US-Born Soldiers Share July 4th Beach Party


About 30 United State officers and other soldiers joined more than 150 American-born soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) who emigrated by themselves in a 4th of July party on Tel Aviv's Gordon Beach, Thursday evening. Joining them for the Stars and Stripes, barbecue, beer, and American music were players from the Israel Football League who brought American Football to Israel.

The event was staged by the Nefesh B'Nefesh organization which helps expedite Aliyah (emigration to Israel) predominantly from North America, Friends of the IDF (FIDF) in the United States, the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption and the Tzabar Scouts core group.
