I came to Israel this year a bit confused and nervous. Until very recently, serving in the IDF hadn’t even been an option that I would have considered. When I finally did decide to serve in the IDF, I already knew from what my friends had told me that Garin Tzabar was the best option for lone soldiers in Israel. I attended the Garin Tzabar seminars here in Israel, and met some of the most dedicated Zionists that I have ever known. The group was so overwhelmingly supportive and their passion for Israel moved me so, that I knew that there was no turning back

Today, I am a member of the Garin on Kibbutz Hanita, which is located in the north of Israel next to Naharriya, on the border with Lebanon. Since arriving, we have been together almost constantly, fostering the strong group connection that will be our source of strength during the difficult years to come. A few moments and experiences stand out from the rest of our first month here 

The first that comes to mind is the day that we arrived here at the kibbutz. We were all so excited to finally see the place that we would be calling home for the next few years, and it exceeded expectations. To be cliché, the view here from the mountains is, in a word, breathtaking. There is truly no way that I can describe the natural beauty of this place. It was a long ride up north from Tel Aviv on our first day. We passed through the gate to Hanita, which held a banner that read, “Welcome Garin Tzabar.” I believe that we have all felt truly welcomed into the community 

All in all, our first month here has been a new experience, with highs and lows, and everything in between. We have grown together as a group here, and have had opportunities to try all sorts of new things. I personally am extremely grateful that this group was open and accepted me as a member, and I look forward to seeing what the next few years have in store for us
