Lev Lachayal is the Yeshivat Lev Hatorah 'Hesder' programme that allows Bochurim to draft into the IDF and remain part of the yeshiva while doing so. Lev Lachayal funds flats for the Bochurim to stay in when off duty and provides each boy with extra spending money, which allows the Bochurim to save their army salary and start life in Israel with a useful float. It's an extremely useful asset to Lev Hatorah, the Rama'at Bet Shemesh community and the state of Israel as a whole. As a current Lev Hatorah student who may be taking this programme in the future, I strongly feel this is an extremely worthwhile cause to run for in the Jerusalem marathon. Please take a little time to sponsor my 10k run so we can buy and maintain more army flats, and thereby allow more Bochurim to both maintain their learning in Lev Hatorah and participate in the vital task of defending the Land of Israel.
