Aguda Lemaan Hachayal - the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers, is probably the most widely known organization in Israel, capturing the best of Israel and all that went into the making of the modern Jewish state: patriotism, commitment and a strong community spirit.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) provide for the soldier's military needs. We provide soldiers with the loving care and support they need through a range of recreation, welfare and educational services and facilities designed to enhance their wellbeing in service.
This support communicates to Israel's heroic defenders an important message of solidarity, and affirms a fundamental Jewish value that is at the core of our strength as a nation.
Knowing that they are not alone and that the whole Jewish people and many good friends of Israel stand united with them greatly strengthens our soldiers.
Backing our soldiers will enable us to enhance them with the wellbeing support vital to those who give their all in Israel's defense.
Aguda Lemaan Hachayal is a registered nonprofit organization, and does not receive governmental support. The support of donors is vital for the success of our mission to provide for the wellbeing of Israel's soldiers.
Donors contributing for facilities are recognized with a plaque with the donor's name (the wording is coordinated with the donor), installed in a prominent place inside and outside the facility.
Donors are the guests of honor at the cornerstone laying ceremony, and the project inauguration.
Donors receive a letter of appreciation, pictures of the projects and soldiers.
All Aguda Lemaan Hachayal donors are invited to visit our facilities and IDF units, and to meet with the IDF soldiers - Israel's true heroes.
