Israeli Backpackers

Israeli Backpackers

After serving two or three years in the Israel Defense Forces, most Israeli young people travel to foreign countries to relax and backpack. This time away helps these Israelis rest and prepare for life as civilians again. Our workers in New Zealand and Australia allow these former soldiers to stay in their homes while they travel.

At first, many backpackers worry about entering a stranger’s home. But once they realize our workers are evangelical Christians who love Israel and the Jewish people, they relax. Some even extend their stays. The backpackers often join our workers for dinner and spend Friday nights celebrating Shabbat (Sabbath) with them. Wonderful conversations take place around the table, and new friendships form. The soldiers leave encouraged, rested, and assured they have Christian friends all over the world supporting and praying for them. A gift of $50 will help us house a group of backpackers for a weekend.
