Our Response to the War

The Upper Galilee Leadership Academy (Mechinat Galil Elyon), which has been operating for 25 years to take part in national missions and cultivate the next generation of leadership, is preparing the northern home front.

Since the wave of atrocities on Saturday, many kibbutzim in the north have been on high alert, border communities have been evacuated, and educational institutions throughout the country have been closed. The clouds of war on the northern front are closer than ever. Residents who were not evacuated were asked to remain in or near shelters. The result is a social pressure cooker that is not currently a government priority, but is of the utmost national importance. The northern home front is a vital frontline.

Our contribution

For the national mission of preparing the northern home front, Mechinat Galil Elyon is joining with all 300 participants, who are spread throughout the Galilee.
