THE Yashar LaChayal Hoops for Heroes

Men’s 3X3 Basketball Tournament 

Sunday, January 9, 2021

Goals of the Tournament:

  • The goal of The Hoops of Heroes Men’s 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament is to raise awareness and funds for Yasha LaChayal and their ongoing efforts and programs that benefit members of the IDF, while connecting Jews in America with Chayalim in Israel. 

About Yashar LaChayal:

  • Yashar LaChayal is a truly amazing non-profit organization that brings soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces what they need when they need it. From its inception in July 2006 during the height of the second Lebanon War, the volunteers at Yashar LaChayal have continued to provide and distribute  basic necessities (toiletries, sunscreen, towels, undergarments, gloves, jackets and much more) to the combat IDF soldiers and Elite Units serving on the front lines, on the borders, and in remote locations throughout Israel
  • Yashar LaChayal continues to develop relationships with IDF Commanders and therefore are quick to contact their representatives when the units or individual soldiers are in need of assistance
  • Yashar LaChayal has also created many programs that benefit all members of the IDF including- Injured Soldiers, Lone Soldiers and IDF Widows and Orphans 

About Howard Rhine z”l:

 Our brother Howard Rhine’s legendary devotion to the State of Israel, especially the IDF, was exemplary.  One of his most treasured projects was the IDF cards with the Prayer for the Chayalim that he directed and produced and are used throughout the global Jewish world.   Howard was  a true friend to Yashar LaChayal, “Straight to the Soldiers” and was extremely passionate about its mission.   He introduced us to the organization  several years ago. From that introduction, we created the annual Yashar LaChayal Hoops for Heroes Yeshiva Day School Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments, with over 20 school teams and over 300 participating student athletes. During one of our last visits with Howard, we showed him the video of last year’s event and he was so happy and had tears of joy in his eyes.  We are truly honored to dedicate this 2022 Hoops for Heroes Men’s 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament in his memory. 

Personal and/or Corporate Tournament Sponsorships are also available here.
