Atlanta-Young Leadership

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces Atlanta Young Leadership was re-launched in the Winter of 2014 to increase engagement and awareness of the important work of FIDF to Atlanta’s young professional community ages 22 to 35. We offer an opportunity for young adults to network, socialize, and engage with others who passionately care for the safety and security of Israel.

FIDF Young Leadership is one of the fastest growing and relevant causes in Metro Atlanta. Our most recent events have included The Annual Young Leadership Casino Night, Sunday Flywheel Charity Rides, and smaller, exclusive cocktail & dinner events where participants are given a chance to meet soldiers and important leaders in our community, while learning about the meaningful work of FIDF.

YL-Atlanta’s Annual Casino Night attracts over 200 young Atlanta area professionals who enjoy a night of casino-style gambling, live entertainment, delicious food, silent auction, and opportunities to win 5 star raffle prizes all in support of the soldiers serving in the IDF.

FIDF YL is a major attraction for Atlanta’s young community to share their support for the brave men and women of the IDF. Want to get involved? Please contact the FIDF Southeast Region at 678-250-9030 or

The Atlanta Young Leadership Executive Committee Consists of Meredith Broudy, Jason Chaliff, Jonathan Grant, Andrew Levison, and Ben Levy who all sit on the FIDF Atlanta Board of Directors.
