HOST an IDF reservist in your home.  The bond is something that your family will cherish forever.  This will change your life…just ask past host families.  Families provide a clean bed and bathroom, and breakfast daily, as well as transportation to a daily meeting site and from a pick up point.  Occasional dinners and Shabbat dinner with the host family.  Tzahal Shalom takes care of everything else.  There are events that require your attendance, but, trust us - you won’t want to miss any opportunity to be with your guest.  

BUDDY families support the host family and pitch in with transportation or meals and are included in the Tzahal Shalom intimate family experience.  Being a Buddy family is a stepping stone to hosting, and provides the family with an enriching close experience with the delegation.


​Our program depends on your participation, during the ten day visit and particularly at our annual event where we raise the funds to bring another delegation back to the community next year. It's always an amazing, fun night.

This program is paid for 100% by donations from the community.  We receive no outside funding.  You can help. Contributions from the community allow us to ensure the program will continue for years to come.
