About "Yedid Nefesh"
"Yedid Nefesh" is an association founded in 2016 to enable the alumni of the Elite Mobility Unit to donate their human capital to the Israeli society by initiating and participating in voluntary projects.
The association's name, "Yedid Nefesh" (Soul Mate), is derived from the title of a Jewish Piyuut usually sung on Sabbath.
About the Mobility Unit
The Mobility Unit is a part of the Paratroopers Brigade.
Because of its major role in the IDF operational programs, it was reorganized by the former Chief of General Staff, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz, as a professional Elite Unit with major operational duties cooperating with the Israeli Navy and Air Force.
Most of the unit operations remain under the veil of secrecy, due to their sensitive nature.
“In forming the association, our goal was to organize the graduates of the Mobility Unit into active participants of the association by creating a social network for its members.
"Yedid Nefesh" will define and locate the social activities that the alumni can contribute the most for the benefit of the Israeli society. Once the activities are defined, "Yedid Nefesh" will allocate its members and manage the process of the volunteering.
In addition, "Yedid Nefesh" will support the active soldiers of the Mobility Unit and will help them as they transition from soldiers to civilians. The association will also be in charge of keeping the heritage of the unit and honoring the love ones that we lost.
In all its activities, "Yedid Nefesh" will advance the core values of the Mobility Unit: professionalism, pursuit of excellence, commitment, utmost integrity, creativity and "soul mate" mutual responsibility.
