Dear Tzabarnikim and Parents,
We are excited and proud to announce that three Garin Tzabar lone soldiers will be receiving from President Shimon Peres the highest award on Yom HaAtzmaut, the Presidential Excellency Award. We could not be more proud of our soldiers.
Meanwhile, in America, we have recently completed our third seminars for the Garin Tzabar groups in North America who are preparing to move to Israel and join the IDF this Summer. In the next few months, we will be finishing the preparation process, and will be holding farewell events all over North America.
This year we have 8 groups, with 200 future soldiers, and there are another seven groups with 150 future soldiers, joining us from all over the world.
We have begun a new initiative in North America, the Lone Parents meetings. We have held events around the country, inviting parents of Lone Soldiers to join together to build a network and community of support, guidance, and growth. Stay tuned for more updates on these developments.
Whether you are a Garin Tzabar participant, a proud parent, or a member of the Garin Tzabar extended family, we hope that you choose to support us with a Yom HaAtzmaut donation. You enable us to continue to provide our amazing programming to future lone soldiers.
Thank you for your continued support.
Shabbat Shalom and Yom HaAtzmaut Sameach!
Director, Tzofim Garin Tzabar
