As Sukkot draws near, fifty IDF units are receiving giant-sized "Nechalim" brand modular sukkahs, courtesy of the Ahavat Yisrael project headed by Rav Menachem Ofan. In addition, 1,000 sets of the Four Species (Arbaat HaMinim) have been donated.

The sukkahs and Four Species sets were given to the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers (AWIS), which has received requests from various IDF units and from the IDF Rabbinate for assistance in helping IDF soldiers celebrate the holiday properly and in accordance with Jewish law.

AWIS is transferring the sukkahs to IDF units and to the Soldiers' Hostels (known as Beit HaHayal) and recreation villages it maintains throughout Israel. 

The Four Species sets are being transferred to the IDF Rabbinate.
