Many Lone Soldiers need your support!
YAHAD - Organization for lone soldiers in Israel

Goals and Methodology

The day our soldiers enlist, the volunteers show up at the bus station with refreshments, and encouragement. As their service continues, we come to their graduation ceremonies when they complete different training courses. In addition, we help them find accommodations for their time off. We provide host families for the lone soldiers on Shabbat and holidays. Some of these families practically adopt these soldiers and become lifelong friends.
Throughout the year, we provide the lone soldiers meals every Friday for the weekend. We plan special events during Chanukah and Purim at local restaurants in Haifa for the lone soldiers who come from many different units. We are there for them when they finish special training courses, , and at the end of basic training. We help with apartments, furniture , moving, electrical appliances etc. We also help them through Israeli bureaucracy.
Upon completion of their army service, we help them find higher education scholarships – if they are headed to university; if they have already completed their education and are looking for work – we assist them with their job search. We are there to support them, emotionally and financially to answer all their needs.
