Accommodations in NYC
IDF veterans visiting New York City receive the full Belev Echad treatment. We provide them with the housing and accommodations they need to make that their stay in the Big Apple a comfortable and memorable one.
Bar & Bat Mitzvah Projects
Empower your child to make a difference in the lives of others. In partnership with the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child, Belev Echad will help to create a unique project that will benefit not only your child but also our wounded soldiers. Instead of receiving presents, your child will be giving soldiers presents
This epic cycling experience, which occurs every May, allows patrons and wounded IDF veterans alike the opportunity to come together in support of Israel through teamwork and sportsmanship- and a lot of fun!
College Campus Ambassadors
Our wounded soldiers represent the incredible courage and sacrifices of our people for our people. Belev Echad empowers wounded veterans to become ambassadors of Israel by addressing and engaging with college youth on campuses all over the United States.
Evening of Unity Gala
Our annual gala celebrates the mission of Belev Echad and the critical work we do on behalf of our soldiers every day. This meaningful evening brings together supporters, celebrities, and staff to honor our wounded IDF heroes and those who enable us to continue this vital work. Each year, every attendee leaves feeling inspired and recommitted to the mission.
US Tours of Happiness
Our 10 day, five-star tour of NYC provides recovering soldiers with the experience of a lifetime, motivating them through the toughest parts of their rehabilitation while creating a network of support for each soldier.
Belev Echad’s YJP hosts Friday night dinners as well as an annual Purim party, and other events, to provide a space for our young supporters to connect and grow as proud advocates for Israel.
Meals and Food Packages
Thousands of meals are provided each year to our soldiers. These meals provide nutritious, hot meals ensuring that our soldiers will not go hungry.
Career Training and Job Placement
For many, it is difficult to transition back into everyday life after injury- especially for those with permanent scars and disabilities. We empower these soldiers through career counseling and guide them through the job hunting process to provide them with all the tools necessary to succeed. Through our partnerships with experts in various fields, we offer mentors to our wounded soldiers in the job force.
We also provide unique opportunities such as certification for surf instructors and dog trainers once our soldiers go through those programs. These opportunities allow for increased confidence, a sense of purpose and even a career.
Empowerment Through Education
We provide laptops and offer grants for college and university programs to ensure that wounded soldiers are able to build the foundation necessary to achieve their career and life’s goals. A college education which leads to a career of their choice, gives the soldiers a sense of purpose and a way to provide for themselves and their families.
IDF Tour Guides
Our alumni serve as tour guides of their own home state, showing American tourists the perspective of people who have bled for the Jewish Homeland. This is a deeply rewarding and fascinating experience for all.
