Please help me reach my personal fundraising goal...
What is “Join the IDF with Me?”
This is a program that helps young men like me who are ready to put our lives on the line for the Jewish Nation prepare for the IDF.
We aren’t native Israelis. Can you imagine what that's like and why I need to prepare before going in? Of course you can!
Why am I doing this?
For me, it’s a calling. I can’t stand by when I hear about the attacks on Israel.
Our enemies have one goal...
Wipe Israel and the Jews off the map. This isn’t anything new. Before, we didn’t have an army to defend ourselves. We had nowhere to go. You know the results of that. Now we do, and we’re strong. No more will our enemies shove us into cattle cars, enslave us, pogroms, gas chambers and slaughter us like sheep.
THOSE DAYS ARE OVER! Thank G-d, we have Israel back; we have a strong army. I’m going to join the fight. If it’s the frontline, then I’m on it!
NEVER AGAIN means NEVER AGAIN! And that’s not lip service.
I’m inviting YOU to join the IDF with me...
What does that mean?
That means I’ll go into the IDF and you will help support the preparation I need. You’ll help encourage me to keep going when things get rough.
It’s not going to be easy for me, as I didn’t grow up in Israel. But that’s not going to stop me!
Keshet has a special program for boys like me.
The program has hundreds of boys that have started out just like me. Not only did they have a successful service, but received awards and commendations for outstanding service!
Why am I asking for support?
Not all the boys can afford to go to Keshet. But they need the program. They are determined like me to serve the Jewish Nation with everything they have.
We are a team, and it’s one for all and all for one. No man is left behind! I’m asking you to help. We’re going to do our part.
We need to know you have our backs.
Here’s how the program works:
You make a donation, this shows us that you care. That’s important to us.
Throughout the year of our Pre IDF Training, there will be benchmarks for us to achieve. When we hit those benchmarks, we will receive a digital badge. You will get the same digital badge we do. The digital badge recognizes your support. Showing your support is part of the ongoing fight.
I’m asking you to share that on social media to help create awareness of our program, so others can get involved.
Like with everything in life, we will have our struggles as we go through the program. An email will be sent to you from time to time directing you to a special page that you can leave us words of encouragement. We’re going to need it.
At the end of the program, you’ll receive a Certificate of Appreciation showing that you “Joined the IDF” with me through your support. You can proudly display the certificate.
We will be ready to serve in the IDF. Many of us will make it to elite combat units. Others serve with pride and excel in the units they make.
When the fight comes, we'll be ready.
Keshet Yehuda religious Zionist pre-military Academy and Yeshiva were established in 1991 on the Golan Heights as one of the first such institutes in Israel. Today it is one of the leading Academies in Israel. The Academy was established with the goal of increasing the number, quality, and influence of religious Torah-based officers in the army.
The Academy prepares religious boys for their military service by strengthening the base of their religious observance and thus instilling in them a deeper and more profound understanding of what they are fighting for and by giving them the tools to serve in the armed forces as religious soldiers without compromising their values.
The aim is further to educate the boys to become highly motivated soldiers and officers serving both in the ranks and in special units and give them a strong moral and ethical base. This is the base upon which they will make difficult decisions when required in battle conditions. The Academy is also looking ahead and is helping to bring up a generation of potential leaders of Israeli society. There are almost two thousand Keshet Yehuda graduates, many of whom hold leadership positions in the army and civilian life.
An important part of our program's funding continues to be generated from the recruits, their parents, and their support and generosity. This fundraiser will help us pay for the budgeted expenses for the upcoming year including boys that come from outside of Israel to join the IDF. As noble as that is, the boys aren't ready to serve. They need to learn Hebrew, get used to the Israeli mentality, create a new social network, prepare spiritually, mentally, and physically. This program has a cost and is not covered by any agency. The boys must self-fund. Every year we have some boys that can't afford the tuition. We are fundraising to help those boys pay for their tuition. Along with my staff, I would like to personally thank everyone for supporting our program.
Can they count on your support?
