The Haredi service tracks in the IDF are home to approximately 2,800 soldiers from ultra-Orthodox backgrounds who chose to serve in the IDF despite the many challenges from home and the environment in which they come from.
The organization’s professional team works in cooperation with the IDF and the Defense Ministry to establish the platforms and create an environment adapted for the needs of Haredi soldiers in the IDF, to help preserve the values of Haredi society.
The team accompanies our soldiers on a daily basis, giving Torah lessons, lectures, personal accompaniment and more, assisting the soldiers in fulfilling their potential of both giving, and getting, the most out of their service. This helps them develop personal and social resilience on the road to each soldier’s personal success.
In addition, the rabbis and advisers of the Netzah Yehuda association serve as a bridge between the army and the families of the soldiers and the ultra-Orthodox community.
The Haredi tracks in the IDF began in 1999. To date, there are over 16,000 veterans.
Many veterans experience challenges during reintegration into society, particularly in academic frameworks and the workforce. To deal with these issues, we established a Veterans’ program, which assists our veterans through dozens of projects.
The Veterans’ program operates a unique “Beit Midrash”, which deals with the issue of personal Jewish identity among the veterans, prestigious leadership programs, matchmaking groups, cooperation with Haredi colleges and university programs, scholarship advice, and a job board which unites approximately 1,000 veteran owned businesses, promoting mutual assistance and create a force for consumerism, housing and more.
Soldiers of Netzah Yehuda – We pray to God that He strengthen you and lift you up and your families.
