The Jewish Pioneers of the Negev with Noam Tamir

Hosted By: Volunteers for Israel (VFI)

Take a trip with Volunteers for Israel to the Gaza Envelope and hear the stories of the Jewish pioneers who came to live in the Negev Desert and made it what it is today. It’s a story of struggle and bravery unique to this part of the country.

From the story of Miriam Shahor that influenced the role of women’s service in the Israel army and the underground Kibbutz Nirim that stood against the Egyptian army, to the story of the Steel Brigade Monument.

Volunteers for Israel (VFI)

Volunteers for Israel (VFI) is the only American organization that creates opportunities for civilian volunteers to serve on Israeli Defence Force bases. VFI partners with Israeli military and civilian organizations that enable volunteers to work side-by-side with Israel's soldiers, providing non-combat support to help maintain the readiness of the IDF to defend Israel. VFI enables the IDF to allocate more of its manpower and finances to military tasks, boosts morale within the IDF, and strengthens personal connections to Israel.
