The Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) Houston chapter’s Women’s Brigade, including (top row, from left) Ellen Fiesinger, Eliza Quigley, Meredith Segal, Robin Greenspan, and (bottom row, from left): Claudia Selzer, Georgia Barzilay, Elise Newman, and Robin Davis gathered at the home of Dr. Riva Collins Mitzner. The group of local FIDF members came together to support the soldiers who ensure the existence of Israel and raise funds for veteran Israeli defense forces combat solders in need of service dogs as they transition to civilian life. Guest speaker Omri Shafran, a veteran of the elite Airborne Combat Rescue and Evacuation 669 Unit, addressed the group and detailed some of his most traumatic experiences, and how critical FIDF’s support was to him throughout his service.
