The pizza project was founded back in 2002 by Menachem Kuchar. during Israel’s Operation Defensive Shield, to rid our area of terrorists following the bombing of the Park Hotel in Netanya and the murder of thirty people, including many Holocaust survivors, sitting down to their Pesach Seder. This followed a number of years in which the founders gave an opportunity to send Purim mishloach manot.
During the last twelve years they have delivered thousands of pizza pies and other gifts to thousands of soldiers. It is hard for them to describe how happy they are to receive these “special treats” – it goes well beyond getting a hot pizza late at night at a lonely post. It is as tremendous an experience for the pizza project to give them out as it is for the soldiers to receive them. They love to know that people everywhere support and care for them.
After running the show for many years Menachem decided it’s time to do other things (check out his website here) and passed the torch of this beautiful project to his son and daughter in law Tanya and Elisha.
Aliyah Magazine supports this great initiative and provides this content without any financial gain, such is our sense of purpose to get behind the pizza project!
