Baltimore Chapter


The Midatlantic Region of the FIDF was founded in late summer of 2008 in the Baltimore community. The founding members quickly established a working committee that has grown into the Midatlantic Board of Directors. In that time Baltimore was able to quickly grow by hosting programs that included four galas, numerous parlor meetings and activities introducing and educating FIDF to the Baltimore metropolitan area.
Midatlantic FIDF is proud to be part of the national FIDF team that stands behind the men and women of the Israel Defense Forces.
