Lone soldiers

There are currently over 6,000 lone soldiers serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, 1000 of whom are living in the greater Haifa area. Our aim is to serve the majority of these lone soldiers. They come from all over the world to defend Israel: Russia, Australia, Canada, the United States, Argentina, France and more. They share a love and concern for Israel and the Jewish people.

In the IDF, they quickly become a part of a team, and they have friends. However, when they are on leave, their fellow soldiers all go to their parents’ homes, while these young men and women, go to empty rented apartment. It is up to us to provide meals every Friday for Shabbat, set them up with host Israeli families, should they desire, and to support them throughout their service as they work to integrate into Israeli society after completing their service. Some lone soldiers prefer to share apartments . We help them acquire furniture, appliances, so these youngsters can enjoy their time off. Every Friday from 10 am-3 pm our volunteers distribute Shabbat meals to the lone soldiers, however our resources are limited.
