Garin Tzabar is a Program that has existed since 1991, and is a platform for young people from all over the world who choose to immigrate to Israel to enlist for significant service in the IDF, and to do so in a group setting. They arrive in Israel and stay in the setting of Garin groups on Kibbutzim and Citys all over the country, and enlist to the IDF as lone soldiers. We accompany the young immigrants all throughout their military service, as well as after it.
The Program operates under the auspices of the Scouts Movement, in collaboration with the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, the Prime Minister’s Office, the Jewish Agency, the Social-Security Division of the Ministry of Defence, the Kibbutz Movement, and other partners.
The “Scouts Garin Tzabar” Program serves as a substitute for family for those lone soldiers who are in Israel without their close family unit.
As a result, the Program team is the entity of first contact in any unfortunate instances of complicated medical, mental, and criminal problems, etc. In light of events of recent years, in which the Program Team, who not designated as the Participants’ official guardians, could not receive information and act in an optimal manner, and so that the Program Team can best assist each Participant, we request your signature on the enclosed Power-of-Attorney form, and the Waiver of Confidentiality enclosed herewith, which will permit Program staff to receive medical and/or mental and/or criminal information about the Participant from any external party.
