ISEF’S STUDENT SOLDIERS

As Operation Protective Edge moves forward with a ground invasion of Gaza, dozens of ISEF’s scholars are putting on their uniforms and reporting to military reserve duty. We are grateful for their sacrifice and continue to offer support to all our student-soldiers.

Chagi Mastbaum 2

Chagi Mastbaum, ISEF scholar and Mechanical Engineering major at Ort Braude College, is fulfilling his military reserve duty as an Officer for Operation Protective Edge. Chagi is a Dean’s List student with high marks, and an active volunteer in his community, tutoring and mentoring youth at ISEF’s learning centers and college preparatory program in the north. This week, Chagi thanked ISEF for its support, which he credits as having a tremendous impact on his academic success and his drive to excel. 

We pray for Chagi’s safe return and for the safety of all our scholars, bravely defending Israel. 

Lighting the Path to Israel’s Future

This year, over 400 deserving young Israelis are studying for their degrees with the support of The ISEF Foundation.
Check out our newest video featuring four extraordinary ISEF scholars making great strides in their fields.

Since 1977, ISEF has granted over 19,000 scholarships to bright young Israelis from immigrant families and underserved communities.
Though Israel has changed greatly in the 37 years since ISEF began its work, one truth has remained – investing in education is the key to making a real difference in Israel’s future and in the lives of its young people.
