IDF spares no expense for soldiers' Seder
Army purchases 75 tons of Matzo, 13,000 bottles of grape juice for soldiers spending first night of Passover at military posts.

With the first night Passover approaching, the IDF has made every effort to bring some holiday spirit to its soldiers spending Seder on their bases.



The IDF has bought 75 tons of Matzo, 6.5 tons of Nile Perch fish and 45 tons of different types of meat for Seders at bases around the country, as well as 9,000 bottles of carbonated drinks and 13,000 bottles of grape juice for Kiddush.

The army also stocked up on 7.2 tons of flour for unleavened bread, 2.3 tons of potato flour, 3.2 tons of powder for dumplings, 2.5 tons of artichokes, and 2.8 tons of mushrooms. And as a Seder isn't complete without dessert, the IDF bought 7.5 tons of kosher chocolate cake, coconut cookies, and fig biscuits.


Like every year, the large purchase for the pesach meal will allow soldiers across the country to continue guarding Israel throughout the nation-wide holiday.


IDF says it wishes "all IDF soldiers in the air, at sea and on land, to reservists, to their families, and to all the nation of Israel and Jews across the world - have a happy and kosher Passover!"
