A Word from our Directors

Its Engagement Season at Chayal el Chayal

Dear Friend,

This month at Chayal el Chayal, we are thank G-D celebrating four engagements! Yosef Antopolsky - Bodedim B'yachad (Former Lone Soldier Program) director, is engaged to Esther Adler. Our general manager Choni Botnick is engaged to Rivky Kastel. Lone Soldier Yonatan Chaim is engaged to Sara Arviv, and Lone Soldier Zak Heller is engaged to Chaya Lachs.

There is a popular saying that goes, “it takes a village to raise a child”. Suggesting that it is the many influences of parents, peers, and teachers that largely contribute to the forming of a child’s perspective and approach to his or her life. This is true for IDF lone soldiers as they are our children and part of our village.

It is with your partnership that we are able to serve the needs of the drafting, current, and former Lone Soldiers, in this unique village. Together we provide them with the spiritual, practical and emotional support they need at each stage of their military service. 
It is a gift for us to be a part of their lives. We thank you for helping take care of these incredible soldiers. We wouldn't be able to do it without you.

May you and your family be blessed with true joy, safety, and revealed goodness in all areas of life.

Mazal Tov!

Chayal el Chayal makes sure that we keep a personal connection with hundreds of former lone soldiers. The reason we do this is to insure we can help them succeed spiritually, emotionally and physically even after they have started living their own lives in their respective communities all over the world.  Check out some pictures from this past month with Co-Director Ari Abramowitz.

Girls Night In BBQ

Girls Night In this past month had a beautiful BBQ at Gan Sacher Park in Jerusalem. Former Lone Soldier Tsipi Moskowitz, arranges and runs the Girls Night In for Lone Soldiers and Sherut Leumi girls put the event together. The bonfire was special as Lone Soldier Astrid Cortez finished her service in the IDF. 
Mazal Tov Astrid!!!

Bar Mitzvah Celebration

We are grateful that this past Thursday, Yisrael Suissa and his family chose to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah together with our Lone Soldiers.

A delicious 3 course meal was served while Mordy shared an inspirational Dvar Torah. After Yisrael shared a Mamar the soldiers sang and danced with Yisrael and his family and enjoyed a Shabbat experience together with them.
