Providing lone soldiers with the tools they need to enter Israeli society as confident and active citizens

Here at Wings, we acknowledge the passion and ideology that drive young people from all over the world to make Aliyah and join the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). 

More than 3,000 of these new immigrants serve in the IDF each year. These young people have made significant sacrifices by leaving their homes and families to move to Israel and protect the Jewish Homeland.

The Wings program ensures that these courageous, young individuals do not “fall through the cracks” of Israeli society due to a lack of resources and a supportive safety net.
