What if you could give one dollar and know that an Israeli soldier, on the battlefield, will receive tremendous inspiration and spiritual strength from your small donation?
If you want to give inspiration, hope, and healing to the brave soldiers keeping Israeli men, women and children safe, please read our story—and theirs.
The Protective Edge Story
Battle is a time of bravery, fear, and closeness to God, a time in which every moment lasts forever. It’s easy to imagine how vulnerable a soldier feels.
Recently, Israeli soldiers from in Gaza contacted Nucampaign, a global community of Ambassadors for Israel, and asked if they could be sent pocket-sized copies of Tikkun Haklali.
Known as the Complete Remedy in English, Tikkun Haklali is a collection of ten Psalms specially chosen by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov for their spiritual healing and protection. Israelis from a wide variety of backgrounds have heard of the power of these soul-stirring Psalms.
Nucampaign contacted us, Breslov Research Institute, and we immediately printed and sent out 3000 Protective-Edge Special-Edition of Tikkun Haklali which also contain inspiring quotes and other prayers. The amazing people at Nucampaign generously paid for the printing costs and we published the books for free.
When the soldiers received the books, 5000 of their comrades asked if they could receive copies, too!
There are literally thousands of additional IDF soldiers who could benefit from the chizuk, spiritual strength, this gift could bring. And we want to send them copies—fast.
That’s why we’re asking you to make these spiritual benefits come true for the courageous young men of the IDF.
We’re hoping we raise enough funds for 18,000 copies the Protective-Edge Special- Edition of Tikkun Haklali. But we don’t think the soldiers should have to wait 30 days until our fundraising campaign ends.
That’s why, each time we reach the 5000 dollar donation mark, we’ll immediately call our printer in Israel and he’ll do a rush job.
Nucampaign and Breslov Research Institute will make sure the soldiers get the special edition pocket-sized books—right away.
Now, it’s true that you only need to donate one dollar to give a soldier this soul-uplifting edition. But if you are able to answer the plea of 10 soldiers with a $10 donation, or 50 soldiers with a $50 donation, we’ll be able to reach our goals and get more books out to them all the more quickly.
Won’t you join us and send a spiritual edge to the brave Israelis serving in Protective Edge?
We received word that soldiers are interested in receiving the Hebrew editions of The Gentle Weapon and The Empty Chair in addition to the Protective-Edge Special-Edition Tikkun Haklali, so we will be distributing these as well. Donations will go towards any of these tremendously inspiring books.
Ceasefire Distribution Plan Update
Thank God the ceasefire in Israel seems to be holding and many of the reservists have returned home. We hope and pray for continued peace.
At the same time, there are still tens of thousands of soldiers near the border, and Israel may maintain a permanent self-defense buffer zone along the Gaza border. While we are still in the midst of printing and distributing booklets, the future movement of the soldiers is uncertain. We are therefore expanding our distribution efforts country-wide and offering IDF soldiers and possibly families adversely affected by the war, the opportunity to also benefit by receiving Tikkun Haklalis, and/or The Gentle Weapon and The Empty Chair booklets.Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org or (732) 534-7263.
A personal note from Gil Bashe, Chair of the Breslov Research Institute and Team Leader of the Send a Spiritual Protective Edge to IDF Soldiers campaign.
Dear Supporter of Israeli Soldiers,
As a former IDF Staff Sargent and combat medic during the first Lebanon War 1982-1985, I served in an IDF paratrooper unit in Lebanon six times. I also participated in the battles of Sultan Yacob and Sidon.
When I hear about the bravery, faith, and sadly, the losses, of the Israeli soldiers fighting in Gaza, today, I close my eyes and am taken back to my service. Although no one can know what lies in the heart of another, the possible exception is a fellow soldier.
Soldiers know that inspiration can be in short supply when you’re facing mortal danger. And that Heavenly inspiration like that found in Tikkun Haklali might mean the difference between despair and hope.
Thank you for joining me and sending our young men faith—in the form of this inspiring edition of Tikkun Haklali and other prayers. These young men might not know your name, but they will appreciate having this book in their uniform pockets at all times, no matter where they might be.
Now, I am going to ask you a personal favor. Would you consider giving a bit more? Your donation of 180, 360, or 500 dollars will help us reach our first 5000 dollar goal, and the pockets of Israeli soldiers, more quickly.
Please see the perks for all the special thank you gifts you'll receive for your kindhearted donation.
It's so special to be part of this unique opportunity to give a spiritual gift to those who are in need of it most—young soldiers on the battlefield. I’m grateful that you—and I—are able to support the Send a Spiritual Protective Edge to IDF Soldiers’ campaign.
With heartfelt appreciation,

Sample of additional prayer from this edition:
Tefilas Shemira: Prayer of Protection by Reb Noson
Loving God, save me from danger on the
Guard and protect me from any kind of
pain, suffering or set-back on the road, and from
all enemies and accusers.
Be with me at all times
— both when sitting in my house and when
Whenever I have to travel, let me set
off peacefully in Your Name and return home
safely in Your Name.
Keep me from all loss or
injury on the road physically, spiritually and
Guard me at all times, both when
leaving and on arrival, and grant me a good life
and peace from now and forever.
Let me give
charity before setting off on a journey, as it is
written, "Justice will go before him, and he will
put his steps on the road."
In the merit of my
charity, prepare the path ahead of me, and go
before me in Your abundant mercy to lead me on
Shine Your great light before me, and
bring me to my desired destination in life and
peace according to Your good will.
