    “From the moment I arrived at Kibbutz Kvutzat Yavneh I knew I had found the support system I
    was hoping for, provided by Garin Tzabar.
    My kibbutz isn’t just my home away from home and my Garin my friends, Yavneh is my home
    and my Garin is my family.”

    “Being a lone soldier isn’t easy but having the help and support system of Garin Tzabar helps me
    remember why I made this choice in the first place and why I wouldn’t have done it any other way even if I had the chance.“

    “Garin Tzabar provided me and other lone soldiers from my Garin with a warm and welcoming home on Kibbutz Alumim during our service. They ensured every participant had an adopted family on the Kibbutz and of course, our Garin became our family.”

    “the greatest advantage of Garin Tzabar was not the direct bureaucratic help or the Hebrew
    lessons – the greatest advantage Garin Tzabar granted was the opportunity to make our own community.”
