A past graduate of the ZF 6th form programme is currently serving in the IDF and has contacted the ZF asking us to send letters to the soldiers who are currently on their Officers course. These young people have to go through rigorous training for 2 months and subsequently are signing up for an extra year in the army. Here is an excerpt of her email to us:
The soldiers in Officers school are giving up extra time of their lives in order to DO more. They are the best of the best and they don't even realise it. I plan on letting them know the importance of what they're doing as some of them are feeling very down. The desert gets very cold at nights and only this week some of them suffered from frostbite.
We are asking you to write letters of gratitude to give them motivation and to thank them for defending Israel. The best way of sending the letters is by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 13th January, so that we can present them in time for their graduation at the end of January.
