Mashiv HaRuach - Soldiers
Mashiv HaRuach’s mission is to re-inspire Israeli soldiers, to bring back the honor and the passion of the Israel Defense Forces. In cooperation with the IDF, Mashiv HaRuach implements experience-based programs to inspire and reacquaint soldiers with Israel’s history and Biblical heritage.
Following the recent wars and the disengagement from Gaza, morale in the Israel Defense Forces suffered a tremendous blow. To date, the dropout rate in the Israeli army is at an unprecedented high. A growing number of young soldiers lack a feeling of national pride in the State of Israel and in the Jewish people.
Experience the Pride
Mashiv HaRuach is committed to reviving IDF pride. Based in Gush Etzion, the program gives soldiers the opportunity to learn, discover and reconnect with the values of the Israel Defense Forces. Through meditation, archaeology, Torah learning and interactive workshops, the soldiers develop a new connection to the land that they protect. More than 16,000 soldiers participate yearly in the program and each soldier leaves enlightened and inspired.
Endorsed by Yeshivat Har Etzion, Kfar Etzion, the Gush Etzion Community Council, Eretz Nehederet and the IDF, Mashiv HaRuach has created a sense of purpose, and generated a new sense of pride and commitment to the land of Israel.

What am I fighting for?
The Chayalim program reminded me what it is that I am fighting for - a land filled with my history, a people determined to live in peace, and a nation living together as one.
