Via Father Gabriel Naddaf’s Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum (ICRF)

We are proud to see the rise of Christian voluntary enlistment to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and national service and to see the positive impact it has on our country.

As a young volunteer said: “This is awesome and this is the future.”

The Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum (ICRF) is committed in supporting the local Israeli Christian community, both in respect to their rights and also their responsibility to defend the country as equal citizens who enjoy all its benefits.

Our pioneering work has received worldwide attention as this is a significant and unprecedented change in the relationship between the Christian and Jewish communities in Israel.

We need to support our young men and women who feel an obligation to the state of Israel as part of this country.

Our goal is to double the number of volunteers by next year. If you want to support our work, please visit our website at:
