THE GIDEON PROJECT

DEFENDING FREEDOM FROM HATE

Let’s support Israel together

The Gideon Project

The Gideon Project was created by the Reservists On Duty team to give former Lone Soldiers a chance to represent and defend Israel internationally after their service.
A lone soldier is recognized by the army as not having any immediate family in Israel.
The central emphasis of the delegation was advertising the project through a recruitment video and having lone soldiers who had completed their IDF services apply.
The team then interviewed and picked the best possible ambassadors to be sent to the United States as the delegation.
The lone soldiers picked as delegates will speak about the story of Israel and the IDF through the story of their own journeys and first hand experiences.

Why Us?

Lone Soldiers have experienced first-hand the regular struggles, dilemmas and challenges that IDF soldiers and Israeli citizens confront day-to-day. On the other hand, as American citizens and former students in colleges and universities, they speak the language and understand the mindset of the local student population, understand what they are going through, and can communicate with them as peers, heart to heart. The delegates are just like the students and average American teen, nonetheless have been in Israel and in the IDF. This equips the average lone soldier with reliability and a strong capability to represent Israel in the best way possible.
