FIDF D.C. Board Member
Larry Sidman was born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts, received a BA from Amherst College and JD from Boston College Law School. Larry has practiced law and legislative advocacy for more than 45 years in the Washington, D.C. area. A committed Zionist, Larry has been privileged to serve on the boards of his synagogue, Congregation Beth El of Montgomery County, the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, and the DC Board of FIDF.
Larry’s strong support of FIDF is rooted in the belief that Israel is central to Jewish identity. Larry views FIDF as the humanitarian complement to the IDF, providing an incredible array of social services, including four-year IMPACT scholarships, financial assistance to poorer families of IDF soldiers, recreational and religious facilities, and support for lone soldiers, all of which ease the financial and psychological burden on the remarkable chayalim (soldiers), helping them to focus on protecting our Israeli brothers and sisters.
