The Israel Defense Force (IDF) is much more than an Army.
It is truly a unique institution. It is a citizens’ army of reservists from all segments of society: religious, secular, non-Jewish, new immigrants, male and female. The IDF is the major force for cultural integration in a very diverse society. The main goal of the IDF is to defend the State of Israel. However, it also strives to create a better, more caring, humane and socially aware society. This is achieved through various programs soldiers receive throughout their army career. LIBI USA funds these important programs.
