Heroes for Life was founded in 2013 by three IDF officers who served together in an elite unit for eight years and then embarked on their post-army trip together- a trip most IDF soldiers go on after completing their military service. On Rosh Hashana ,Gili, one of the three, stayed at a “Beit Chabad”, on the Ko Samui Island in Thailand, along with more than 1500 other Israelis. He was astounded by the tremendous number of Israelis travelling to such poor countries, and this is when the idea was born: to capitalize on this precious resource of post-army travelers in order to make the world a better place.
Heroes for Life activity have tremendous meaning to all of us as Jews, as Israelis, and most of all as human beings
