Overcoming Personal Challenge
One of the important parameters for success in the army, and life in general, is overcoming the barriers of personal challenge. The way to teach this lesson while focusing on unique abilities is by presenting challenging situations and providing tools to accomplish stated objectives.
Once participants begin to recognize their personal abilities, the course transitions its focus to the individual’s role within the group. The only way to achieve success is by working as a team focusing on cohesion, brotherhood, and focus on the task at hand.
In the Army, soldiers are constantly faced with new challenges. When a group faces adversity and everyone works together, the capabilities and strength of the group is increased. So too, when working together as a group, the individual’s capabilities is also raised.

What motivates an 18-year-old to serve in the Israel Defense Forces? What motivates the soldier to go against his/her natural instinct and enter dangerous situations? By connecting to Zionism and its purpose of protecting the Jewish people, the soldier is able to focus on more than just him/herself. Dedication is a theme that emphasized throughout the program.

Leading values 


Love of Israel – Faith – Gratitude – partnership  

Ahavat Israel - the inner force that drives the program and the wounded of the IDF, who take part in it. Love that does not depend on the people of Israel and its state - "Kol Israel Arevim Ze La-Ze".


Faith - "Hope is an act of faith". - Belief in human life, in the life of the nation, in the long-standing Jewish tradition. Belief in the inner strengths of each one breeds optimism and a positive attitude towards life. "Faith is taking the first step even when you do not see the big picture". 


Gratitude - Seeing the good as a key component in life. To give thanks for what is and strive to win all the time out of a desire to increase the good in the world. See constantly the half full glass and from it, strive to fill the other half. "Modde Ani" before "Ani Modde". 


 Partnership - A worldview in which a person sees himself as taking part in processes and not as standing aside.

A deep understanding that partnering with the talents and abilities which are scattered around the world can lead to greater perfection. "Two are better than one".
