Tzofim Garin Tzabar is a unique programme that provides comprehensive services to young Jewish adults (ages 18-24)
who make Aliyah and serve in the Israel Defence Forces (IDF)
as Lone Soldiers.
Upon their arrival in Israel, Garin Tzabar participants are adopted by an Israel community (Kibbutz/city) that becomes their home away from home, throughout the duration of their army service.
Tzofim Garin Tzabar is the only program that provides a 360° support system and framework for those who wish to join the IDF as lone soldiers before moving to Israel, before joining the army, during and after their army service including:
Full board Accommodation assistance with Israel civil services and IDF bureaucracy, integration to Israeli society, building a family within a host community in Israel (kibbutz/Ra’anana) and crafting
a new Garin family – A Family For Life.
Over 5,000 proud Alumni
400 participants join per year
How does it work
Acceptance to the Garin Tzabar programme involves participation in several significant preparation and screening seminars in several locations worldwide.
During the preparation process, candidates review their decision to immigrate to Israel and undergo meaningful service in the IDF, while in parallel they are reviewed by the programme team in terms of their skills, maturity and preparedness to make Aliyah to Israel and live in the programme’s binding setting.
