39, ex-English teacher, work for a church. Atheist until 19, then a Christian. Would love to correspond with an Israeli about Y’shua! I appreciate this might be a minority interest in the IDF so please feel free to pass my details along to someone who would like to talk theology with a reasonably normal Christian. […]

Brannen, Australia

Shalom Zack, I had a number of questions for you, although I have asked so many similar questions that now i find the best answers from what someone would rather see fit to tell me as opposed to simply answering my specific query on a topic. So, you made aliyah? Good for you! Tell me […]

What is Israel? According to self-definition a Jewish state. Of course, Israel is a liberal, democratic state that guarantees freedom of religion. But freedom of religion in a Jewish state? What is a Jewish state? A state in which the majority of the population is by definition jewish. Who is a Jew? That’s the question. […]

John, UK

I was just wondering whether there is some resentment in the army generally about having to put resource into protecting such settlement, particulaly among the more secular members. All the best, John John, Thanks for your question. You raise an interesting point. One would think there would be a lot of resentment by the soldiers […]

Anna, Poland

What do you think about Israelis who immigrate to Europe/other countries in order to avoid the army? Is it true that the Israeli army trains you to sleep with your eyes open? Thanks for your great questions. Israel’s army is one of conscription. Everyone is supposed to join the army and do their part and […]

Elie, France

Id like to know more about the wage for an IDF Soldier. Could you help me ? Elie, Thanks for your question. Israel’s army, being an army of conscription does not pay much generally. The standard wage for a soldier who is not a combat soldier is around 350 shekels a month. This is obviously […]

Do you have a heart? Do you have Feeling ? How can you sleep and you know you’re a killer? Iman, Thanks for your questions. Just to start off, I don’t agree with your grouping of all Israelis as heartless killers. Israelis are very compassionate people who are fighting for their right to exist. As […]

James, Australia

I’m not Jewish, but let’s just say that I wanted to move to Israel to live there because I’m bored of where I live. I also only know a tiny bit of Hebrew. How hard would it be for me to get some unskilled job to earn enough to live off, and live there whilst […]

Nadeema, South Africa

In South Africa it is almost impossible to look at the conflict there without drawing numerous comparisons with Apartheid. Ideologically the motives are different (racism as opposed to Israel’s declaration of a right to exist). But practically the similarities are there. Historically we know that people will never choose to be oppressed & oppression is […]

Vedya, Turkey

My main question is a general wondering. Why be a soldier? What drives a person to take this road? To you, is killing someone – a civilian or an enemy soldier- while in war different than killing whilst not and if so, how? Thanks for you great questions. After I answer your questions, if you […]

Marcia, USA

How can American Jews, and all Jews around the world, help, other than purchasing goods from Israel, if G-d forbid she is attacked, what can we do? Would coming to Israel to help be a wise move for all involved? What made you want to remain and join IDF rather than the US infantry? Do […]

What made you decide to make aliyah? Have you any regrets about your decision? What do you plan to do after you finish your studies? Thanks for your great questions. In my junior year of high school, I took part in a semester long program on a kibbutz. Part of the program was my regular […]

Simon, Germany

We will go to Hebron and meet there someone from “breaking the silence”. I have a image of the IDF as being very morally and thoughtful, trying to keep damage from civilians. So it is a little bit difficult to understand for me, what I heard about “breaking the silence”. What can you say about […]
