A NIGHT OF HEROES

IN THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES, THE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OF THE IDF ARE NOT ONLY SUPPORTING THE COUNTRY'S NATIONAL EFFORTS TO COMBAT COVID- 19, MITIGATING THE RISK OF RESURGENCE, AND CONTINUING TO PROTECT THOSE MOST VULNERABLE, THEY ARE ALSO MAINTAINING OPERATIONAL READINESS CRITICAL TO THE COUNTRY'S DEFENSE IN TIMES OF INCREASED UNREST IN THE MIDDLE EAST. WE WILL CELEBRATE AND SALUTE THESE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN AND THEIR TIRELESS EFFORTS IN AN

EXTRAORDINARY NIGHT OF GIVING.

THIS FIRST-OF-ITS KIND, ONE-NIGHT-ONLY EVENT IS FOR THEM. TO HONOR THEM AND SUPPORT THEM. TO CREATE FOR THEM A BETTER EVERYDAY LIFE AND THE PROMISE OF A BRIGHTER FUTURE.

A NIGHT OF DARING. A NIGHT OF INTRIGUE. A NIGHT OF STORYTELLING.
A NIGHT OF HOPE.
A NIGHT OF HEROES.

AT TIMES LIKE THESE, WE ALL NEED HEROES.

COME BE INSPIRED AND TOUCHED FOREVER BY
UNFORGETTABLE STORIES OF BRAVERY AND HUMANITY.
