Danny Farahan Memorial Lone Soldier Fund

Danny’s Unit in the Israeli Army - Orev Tzanchanim

This money will go to help “Lonely Soldiers” in the Israeli Army. Lonely Soldiers are those that make Aliyah (immigrate to Israel) and serve within the Israeli Army by themselves, without the support of family living in Israel. These soldiers are left to fend for themselves with little mental and financial support, which their Sabra counterparts have while serving near their families in the Israeli Army. We hope to donate to a fund in his name in order to honor Danny in supporting soldiers that experience the struggles of being alone in Israel while honoring and protecting the Jewish people. Through these contributions we can imagine the fund supporting activities, programs, gifts and items of necessity (clothing, food, Shabbat meals, etc…). These services and support networks will help Lone Soldiers adapt and deal with the difficult experiences they will face as soldiers in their new homeland. Danny’s family and friends would like to partner with an existing fund that helps lone soldiers to provide these funds in Danny Farahan Ben David’s name.
The main idea is that we want to honor Danny Farahan Ben David’s army service in the IDF as a Lone Soldier who faced many difficult challenges. Support of a program like this can affect the future of other Lone Soldiers that follow in his footsteps. These specific soldiers and their efforts was something very important to Danny and with this fund we can help that vision and his memory stay alive.

Quick Story:
Danny was always proud of his service in the Israeli Army. His family and friends often offered support, such as thermal shirts, camel packs, better boots, etc…. Danny always refused, and his reasoning was that unless everyone in his unit received these special gifts, he would not accept extra benefits which his fellow brethren did not receive to serve with. He was a true soldier with a one for all mantra. He faced many dangers and accepted the direction of his superiors to be in harm’s way in order to protect all of Am Yisrael.
