History

Garin Mahal is a Nonprofit organization that assists lone soldiers with their enlistment into the IDF. To date, Garin Mahal has assisted over 650 volunteers from America, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Spain and South Africa. Garin Mahal (formerly Aish Machal) was established in March, 2010 in cooperation with Israel's Ministry of Defense.

In addition Garin Mahal runs a 6 Week Pre - Military Educational Program uniquely designed for volunteers from the diaspora.   

Once discharged, approximately 25% of the volunteers make Aliya. Those volunteers that do not make Aliya return to their homes overseas, where they serve a vital role as ambassadors to Israel both on campus and within their own communities.
