Every fighter deserves this Journey.

Assisting veterans in dealing with combat experiences through guided group activity in nature.


About Us

After being released from the IDF, many  fighters deal with the effects of combat events in their day-to-day lives. The For Tomorrow Association helps those fighters who are released from military service in dealing with the events. The association's activities include group trips in nature guided by professionals. As part of these trips, the participants learn and practice A model for strengthening mental resilience and there are discussion circles that are a protected space where everyone can share with the group about combat events they have experienced and the process of dealing with them.

Group Process

Some of the groups are organic teams or departmentsnew frequency and openness while sharing their personal point of view on joint combat eventseach other for the first time at the beginning of the journey process for commanders and fighters who choose to do so.

Nature brings the participants back to positive experiences from childhood and enables a sense of continuity, continuity, growth and renewal that help the personal process of each participant.


The journey process for tomorrow


Initial Introduction

The journeys carried out by an association for tomorrow are mental journeys, the journey process begins with a short meeting for an initial introduction with the pair of facilitators who will accompany the entire process. The meeting is usually held in Tel Aviv but changes from time to time according to the convenience of the facilitators and participants.


The Main Journey Chapter

A few days after the opening meeting (between 3 and 10 days)Leaving for the main part of the trip: 8 days (Monday to Monday) for trips abroad, and 6 days (Sunday to Friday) for trips taking place in Israel.


During this episode, the participants will meet again with themselves and their teammates and will go through a significant mental process together that will strengthen the relationship between them to understand more successfully how to deal with experiences they have gone through and left a mark on them and in addition they will be able to acquire tools to deal with the multitude of life's obstacles that will be placed before them in the future


Opening Meeting

The next step is the opening meeting - a two-day meeting on Thursday and Friday (until 13:00) and takes place at some site in Israel.In this meeting, the other participants in the journey are introduced for the first time, and organic team journeys meet again with the members on a very different platform from the one they have known until now.


During the meeting, they write together a "group contract" drafted by the participants, the meaning of which is to allow room for a healthy and open emotional dialogue.

The Day After The Journey


Your donations help to support our mission to assist veterans of the Israel Defense Forces who went through extremely difficult experiences as a result of their service. It is our goal to help them overcome their "invisible scars" so they can go on to live healthy, productive lives and contribute to and strengthen Israeli society.

Through group journeys in nature led by psychologists and outdoor therapists, veterans gain emotional tools to process, cope and repackage their internal scars. This journey also allows them to share with and support others who have endured similar incidents. Through this program, they learn they are not alone.

Friends of B'shvil Hamachar (A Path to Tomorrow) provides what the Israeli government cannot - the quiet, healing environment of the Colorado Mountains along with the loving supportive families that offer a critical element of recovery and therapy. The therapy and group activities provide Israeli wounded warriors with innovative and transformational counseling that builds confidence and improves their lives. With your help, all services are provided free of charge to the soldiers.

B'shvil Hamachar (Path to Tomorrow) began in 2007 after the Second Lebanon War when the founders realized that hundreds of soldiers who returned from the war were quietly suffering. These soldiers have been released from the Army but are not yet released inside. Since then B'shvil Hamachar has been offering journeys to provide critical counseling for these soldiers.
