Introducing a new way to help our dedicated soldiers. There is a large number of soldiers in Israel who give up a comfortable life in another country, move to Israel and volunteer to join our army. They are paid a stipend which doesn’t even come close to covering basic expenses of city living. Many of these “lone soldiers” receive help from back home. The soldiers that don’t often struggle to find jobs that work with their military schedules and try hard to make ends meet. Unfortunately they are not always successful and need a little help.Donate today to make a difference. Click here
Eyal moved to Israel about 4 years ago. He left an easier life in Toronto, Canada to build a future here in Israel. In Toronto, Eyal worked in High Tech sales, after moving to Israel, he decided to voluntarily enlist in the IDF, committing to serve for 2 years. He is currently working on Army computers and intelligence. The stipend the army pays him is not enough to cover just his rent. Eyal had a job teaching English for a vocational institute but he lost the job due to his rigorous army schedule.
The son of 2 former IDF officers, Eyal has a dream of making a difference to our people and contributing whatever he has to offer the Jewish Army. Its very difficult to keep that idealism when you can’t pay the rent.
Standing Together, www.stogether.org is starting a Gmach (free loan fund) for Eyal and soldiers like him. We believe it’s the least we all can do for these soldiers who give us so much.
Please donate at www.stogether.org and help publicize this effort as much as possible.
