Last Thursday, Hollywood giants gathered to show their support for the Friends of the Israeli Defence Forces.

The FIDF works with orphans, wounded soldiers and veterans, as well as organising activities and providing education.

Their mantra is ‘their job is to look after Israel. Ours is to look after them.

Guests included Ricky Martin, Pamela Anderson and Ben Silverman.

Barbara Streisand commented that “The soldiers of the IDF deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for all that they sacrifice to protect Israel, the only democratic state in the region.”

She continues to add that “This event is always one of the most inspiring and emotional evenings of the year.”

The evening raised $33 million dollars of funds.
