Tzofim Garin Tzabar members are 18-24 year old (women up to the age of 23) Jewish youths from across the globe who chose to make aliyah to Israel to undergo a full and meaningful service as lone soldiers in the IDF.
Garin Tzabar is the only program that provides a 360 degree support system for its participants before moving to Israel, during and after their army service including; assistance with Israel civil services and IDF bureaucracy, integration into Israeli society, building a family within a host community in Israel (either on Kibbutz or Ra’anana) and crafting a new Garin family.

“Garin Tzabar is your home away from home. If you want a supporting family to help you when you need, there is no better way to do it than Garin Tzabar.”
“Being a lone soldier isn’t easy but having the help and support system of Garin Tzabar helps me remember why I made this choice in the first place and why I wouldn’t have done it any other way even if I had the chance.“
