IDF soldiers

Serving in the Israeli Defense Forces is about more than defending borders. It’s about honor, values, and, above all, defending the Jewish people and its ancient homeland.

As with any armed forces in the world, one of the IDF’s most important jobs is to defend its borders from enemy threats.

But unlike other countries, serving in the IDF is so much more than just protecting borders.

Watch and listen to an IDF soldier describe the 75 year history of the Israeli Defense Forces and what it means to fight for the Jewish state.
