Koshertroops was founded to help improve the morale and welfare of members of the armed forces of the United States of America by showing our appreciation for their commitment. We accomplish our mission by sending holiday care packages that include items that will help them celebrate the Jewish holidays and Shabbat so that they feel connected to the Jewish community while away. The taste and smells of home — as well as personal messages of support demonstrates care, honor and respect for our fellow Americans. Connecting in this way to our troops can help meet both their physical and spiritual needs.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah Mitzvah Chesed Project Opportunities:

Years from now, what will your children remember about their Bar/Bat Mitzvah?

Koshertroops provides meaningful projects for Bar/Bat Mitzvah candidates looking for a worthwhile mitzvah project. Bnai Mitzvah families can sponsor these projects and involve family and friends in the project.
There are many ways to participate in a Koshertroops project, you can either have a hands-on project by making packages with your party guests or organize a fundraiser to help Koshertroops.

You can also set up a table at your Bat/Bar Mitzvah for people to write letters to the soldiers. They should be positive and upbeat. It is important to include your name, address, and an email address if possible since we find that sometime a soldier will take a moment to answer one of these letters.

Letters can be written and sent to us at Koshertroops 8 Pleasant Ridge Rd. New Hempstead, NY 10977.
