Lt.-General Rafael Eitan, ( Raful), who helped Prime Minister Menachem Begin to launch The United for Israel’s soldiers
believed in the IDF’s capability to advance the subject of education, as per David Ben-Gurion’s vision: “ the IDF will also serve as an educational and pioneering center for Israel’s youth “.
A foremost aim of United for Israel’s soldiers is the furthering of educational activities for the soldiers of the IDF.
We firmly believe that the investment in educational fields for soldiers during their army service makes them into better soldiers and is vital for the entry into civilian life after completion of their army service.
Educational projects include language courses, completion of a matriculation certificate, enrichment courses, and the granting of study bursaries.
