Pizza and a Chat
Arutz 7

Being a soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces has its perks – defending the Jewish nation, fulfilling a 2,000 year old dream to control our own destiny and for soldiers serving in Hevron... free pizza.

The residents of Kiryat Arba and Hevron have established an organization called “Israel Pizza” to strengthen the morale of the IDF soldiers on duty there. The organization has a “restaurant” in Kiryat Arba where the soldiers in the vicinity (there are about 2,000 of them stationed in the region) come and enjoy free pizza and beverages.

They have set up a live web-cam so people can speak with the soldiers through the computer as they enjoy the food and drink that has been donated. The web-cam can be viewed between the hours of 6:00 pm-9:00 pm Israel time, 11:00 am-2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Just enter the site and click on "live" and then "chat".

Kiryat Arba resident Tsivya Tezza described why such services are so helpful. “The army is closing many of its kitchen for lack of funds, leaving soldiers with airline style meals three times a day from now on. Fresh pizza will surely be an improvement on that. Also, with the entire world seemingly against our young soldiers, they need to know that there are people who care about them from all over the globe sending them this food so they can defend the Jewish people. And lastly, by developing a visual relationship with an Israeli soldier through the live web-cam both the donors and the soldiers benefit immensely from the powerful bond of brotherhood."

Four families have been maintaining the pizza distribution. The husband of one of the organizers was seriously injured in the ‘Worshipers’ Way” terror attack last year.

Pizza for the IDF soldiers stationed in Hevron can be ordered by going to the Israel Pizza site at After clicking "Welcome", just click on the pizza picture to the right of the screen to donate a pizza.
