Last night, around 200 American IDF lone soldiers and new immigrants gathered in the Beit Ha-Chayal in Tel Aviv for a special thanksgiving dinner catered by Idan Ianovici, a former lone soldier from New York City who owns the Vici Deli in Ra’anana.

The Thanksgiving dinner is hosted by Nefesh B’Nefesh, Friends of the IDF, the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption, the Jewish Agency, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, and the Jewish National Fund.

The event aimed to help Americans, whether they are new immigrants or lone soldiers who have no family in Israel to celebrate the traditional American holiday.  At the event, guests were served turkey, cranberry sauce, cornbread, squash, and other traditional American Thanksgiving foods.
