As of Thursday, the Military Rabbinate will render all IDF bases kosher for the Jewish holiday of Passover. After weeks of heavy-duty spring cleaning, soldiers across the IDF will be joined in the field by military rabbis who will certify the bases and assist if need be. By the end of the day, with the mission accomplished, the IDF will be declared Kosher for Passover.

“Our duty is to guarantee that every soldier will eat well during the holiday, whether on base, out in field, in the midst of operational activity, on a vessel or on a plane – in a setting no less elegant than back home,” assured Chief Military Rabbi, Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz.

Israeli military attaches in faraway countries are cared for as well: the Military Rabbinate has sent them a holiday package with a Hagada, grape juice for four people, and traditional holiday foods including Matza, celery, horse radish and Charoset. The packages also include popular Israeli foods which are difficult to come by abroad.

Soldiers whose service prevents them from sitting around a table for the holiday meal will receive packages with all the traditional holiday foods, enabling them to partake in every tradition and to feel the holiday spirit while out in the field.
