Greetings from the Joint Council: Toward a Year of Female Leadership

The Joint Council of Mechinot (Pre-Military Leadership Academies) wishes you a successful, meaningful year. In this message, we would like to draw your attention to a notable point related to gender. Ten years ago, not one woman was the head of a mechina or affiliate, and there were a similar number of female directors filling number-two positions. This year, we see a revolution.

The President of Israel on JCM

Dear fellows, In recent years we have witnessed the growth of pre-military academies. This wonderful phenomenon is the essence of modern Zionism: young adults of all backgrounds, from north and south, Left and Right, religious and non-religious, dedicate one year to repairing the society in which we live, by volunteering, learning about the other and expanding their comfort zone.
