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.
