Happiness

 

Belev Echad’s flagship program brings wounded IDF veterans to New York City for a ten day tour to enjoy the camaraderie of those with similar experiences, and receive thanks and support from the New York Jewish community.

The Tour

While most teenagers are safely in college, the young men and women of the IDF are serving on the front lines, risking life and limb to ensure the safety of the Holy Land. The injuries sustained by many of these young soldiers during their years of service forever changes the course of their lives.

 

Each year, Belev Echad hosts these wounded warriors as a small gesture of gratitude to these men and women to whom we owe so much.

Our ten day NYC Tour provides respite for the body and psyche through visits to classic city sites, shows, sporting events and community activities that heal the spirit and soul, creating memories that last a lifetime.

 

We invite you to join the trip and meet these courageous heroes for yourself.
