Help B'shvil Hamachar Welcome Israeli Veterans
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.
