Religious Garin

    Since 2007 Tzofim Garin Tzabar is proud to offer a Religous Kibbutz framework to young observant Jews who wish to take this journey with a group of like-minded people. The Israel religious Kibbutz quickly becomes their home away from homeThroughout the duration of their army service.

    Our Religious Kibbutzim are spread all over Israel and include amazing places such as Tiart Tzvi, Be’erot Yitzchak, Sa’ad, Kvutzat Yavne, Ein Tzurim, Sde Eliyahu, Lavi and many others.

    The preparation seminars are held in a co-ed religious environment. The food is Kosher with an in-house Mashgiach, Shabbat is fully observed and the prayers are with a Sefer Torah. The seminars in North America are spiritually led by Rabbi Avi Weiss.

    Once in Israel, The Garin is accompanied by religious staff, and each Garin member is placed at a host family in the Kibbutz. Besides preparing for the IDF and settling in Israel, the Garin members visit Jerusalem and other places around Israel, follow the Jewish calendar and fully observe Shabbat and holidays.

    The Religious Garin 3 criteria are:
    -Shomer Shabbat
    – Shomer Kashrot
    – Davening

    Preparation seminars for religious Garinim are held in North America, Europe, and Israel.
