We help ultra-Orthodox youth who need something different
The “Netzach Yehuda” association (also known as the “Haredi Nahal” organization) was established in 1999 (1999) by a group of ultra-Orthodox rabbis in collaboration with the Social Security Division of the Ministry of Defense and the IDF, with the aim of providing a solution for ultra-Orthodox youth who cannot find their place. Studying Torah in yeshiva.
As a result of this cooperation, the 97th Battalion (“Ezra Yehuda”) was formed in the Kfir Brigade, and further “Eternity” routes developed to accommodate a large number of ultra-Orthodox men, including those not suitable for combat positions.
Today, thousands of ultra-Orthodox people are served in the various paths, all characterized by rigor and principles that enable the ultra-Orthodox to serve a significant service in the IDF, without compromising their ultra-Orthodox lifestyle.
Along with many thousands of ultra-Orthodox Yeshiva students who study Torah from morning to night, thousands of ultra-Orthodox youth who do not study at Yeshiva live in Israel today. These boys are the target audience for which the association was formed and for which it operates.
We have set ourselves the goal of building a strong bridge between the ultra-Orthodox and the entire population, providing spiritual and material support to ultra-Orthodox soldiers and strengthening their relationship with their families and the ultra-Orthodox community.

Objectives of the association

The vision of the association

And Torani. The association will accompany ultra-Orthodox graduates and instructors in a variety of fields, to help them integrate into the community after serving in the IDF and help them to form a clear and honorable identity of Jewish Jews, who finds their place in the world of action and is connected to the world of Torah tradition from generation to generation.
