The cowboys are working through a group called HaYovel that supports volunteer efforts to help Israel.

Strain said the work was nothing out of the ordinary. “We’re just out here picking vegetables, but it’s something good, something that needs to be done, and we can show support for Israel in a good way,” he said. “I come from the country and there we support Israel because you guys have values and morals and you care. You care about life and you want peace. We want peace, too. We support that,” Strain said.
