Shalom Friends and Family,
I have chosen to support this organization to help support our chayalim (soldiers). One of my sons attended Yeshivat Lev HaTorah, the host yeshiva of Lev LaChayal, and is now in Lev LeChayal. I can tell you personally how incredibly devoted the staff is to all its students and soldiers. We are so grateful to them!
The yeshiva teaches 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.
With your help, I would like to help them to raise money for a chayal home - to support our children in their devotion to Israel and our People.
What is a Lone Soldier?
A lone soldier is one whose parents live overseas (or an Israeli soldier who is estranged from his/her parents), 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 (including our son!). The yeshiva brings 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. 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.
The yeshiva dreams of replicating the model and taking care of hundreds of chayalim annually with this awesome and critical model. If they own a few soldier homes, the significant costs involved in running this program will be sustainable, and they will be able to soar with spreading this model.They are just $250,000 away from owning the first home. Let’s help them buy the first chayal home together, running and sponsoring our soldiers.
Thank you for your support!
