Big Yankee Send-Off to Olim Yankees Host Farewell Party for Newest IDF Members


In Yankee Stadium’s Presidential Suite, Randy Levine, President of the legendary New York Yankees baseball organization, together with his wife Mindy, hosted 40 young American Jews who are about to make Aliyah and enlist in the IDF.

Some of the young people will be arriving to Israel on Tuesday’s ‘Lone Soldier’ flight, of which 109 (55 boys and 54 girls between the ages of 18-23) are soon to be enlisted in the IDF. The 109 total almost a third of the 338-seat Nefesh B’Nefesh-organized flight.
