Shalom Friends and Family,
I have chosen to run for this organization to help support our chayalim. I attend Yeshivat Lev HaTorah, the host yeshiva of Lev LaChayal, and I can tell you how incredibly devoted the staff is to all its students and soldiers. We learn above all the importance of being a Jewish leader and so many Lev HaTorah students rise to leadership through their service in the IDF. There is no wonder that Lev HaTorah has become the first and only yeshiva base for lone soldiers, willing to take care of all lone soldiers just as their own.
Running and raising money for a chayal home is the least I can do to support my peers in their devotion to Israel and our People. Please join me to do the same.
What is a Lone Soldier?
A chayal whose parents live overseas, and, as such, cannot provide a home base for their child or help maintain and strengthen his morale throughout his service. There are currently over 7000 lone soldiers.
Lev LaChayal, the only Yeshiva based Lone Soldier Center, trains and cares for 35 - 40 active soldiers annually. We bring home to them with furnished, cleaned, and maintained homes that are always stocked with food. Caring mentors and Rabbanim run weekly Shabbat and Yom Tov meals, visit their bases, and run programs for the soldiers when they are off base. Our community members are also quite active in the program, bringing the chayalim extra food and providing rides to the train, all to bring home the message that Am Yisrael stands behind them.
With dreams of replicating our model and taking care of hundreds of chayalim annually with this awesome and critical model. If we own a few soldier homes, the significant costs involved in running this program will be sustainable, and we’ll be able to soar with spreading this model. We are just $250,000 away from owning our first home. Let’s buy our first chayal home together, running and sponsoring our soldiers.
