In June 2009, Major General (Res) Itzhak ‘Jerry’ Gershon came to the Seattle area and spoke at Cedar Park Church, in Bothell, Washington. Pastor Dr. Joe Fuiten, Senior Pastor, has long been a supporter of FIDF and he brought together 1,200 members of the Church to welcome General Gershon. The crowd was very appreciative of his visit, cheering him with standing ovations numerous times.
In November 2009 the IDF Orchestral Ensemble visited the Seattle area for two concerts, Seattle and Tacoma. Nearly 400 people enjoyed the performances at Temple Beth El in Tacoma and Temple Bnai Torah in Bellevue. The soldiers were hosted by local supporters and given a tour of the beautiful area by their hosts. Each performance featured a reception for the soldiers prior to going on stage, where donors had a chance to meet and mingle with the soldiers.
The soldiers also visited Seattle’s Jewish Day School, where they participated with the students in the classrooms.
