Momentum Project

Assisting Soldiers Prepare for Civilian Life

FIDF is proud to support Momentum, an Israeli non-profit founded to assist IDF soldiers with their transition out of the army and into a civilian life. Momentum provides the tools, skills and opportunities for soldiers to reenter civilian life with confidence and direction. 

Through empowerment seminars and skills workshops, soldiers who are still on active duty are encouraged to begin preparing for their transition process by honing their transferable skills and thinking ahead. After they are discharged, Momentum offers post-army workshops, digital media support, and mentoring programs. Momentum works in partnership with private, business and public sectors to further increase soldiers’ career prospects and support. 

A Unique Opportunity to Double your GiftNow is the time to give to Momentum. Your gift to Momentum will be matched dollar for dollar by FIDF, up to $500,000. That’s double the impact. We believe in the importance of investing in our youth and thanking them for their service by providing them with the support that they need to succeed.

Why is Momentum Important?


The end of a soldier’s army service marks the beginning of his or her future as an independent contributor to society. Soldiers of today are leaders of tomorrow.

On average, Israeli youth delay their education by three years after their service and many leave Israel for long periods of time. Transitional assistance maximizes human potential by helping soldiers pursue higher education, jumpstart their careers, and ultimately contribute to the economy. The better prepared they are, the more it benefits them, Israel, and the greater Jewish world.

Proven Success
•Over 15,000 soldiers have taken Momentum seminars
•10,000 discharged soldiers are active on Momentum’s social media and website
•Momentum has been endorsed by IDF Officers, parents, academics, Israeli Knesset Members and other public figures. 

Help soldiers prepare today to be leaders of tomorrow. 

Give Now. Double your Impact with FIDF.
