About Howard Rhine a”h





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 card with the Prayer for the Chayalim that he directed and produced. Today they are used throughout the global Jewish world. Howard was a true friend to Yashar LaChayal, “Straight to the Soldier” 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. The funds raised went to supplying basketball hoops to IDF army bases throughout Israel. When we showed Howard the video of last year’s event, he was so happy and had tears of joy in his eyes. We are truly honored to dedicate THE Yashar LaChayal Hoops for Heroes Men’s 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament in his memory.
