Pre-army students begin intensive daily study of “The Israel Bible” 

September 10, 2021

What is the best way to prepare for enrolling in the #1 army in the Middle East and the most humane military in the world? A number of Yeshiva students in Israel can teach us all their secret.

In observance of the Shmita Sabbatical Year, a number of pre-army students in Israel began intensive study of “The Israel Bible” with the goal of finishing the entire Bible during the Jewish year 5782.

The students who are about to enroll into the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) gather every day at the “Israel365 Lone Soldier Center” at Yeshivat Lev Hatorah in Beit Shemesh, Israel. Author and popular lecturer, Rabbi Moshe Lichtman leads the students in a daily Bible study according to a rigorous schedule in order to finish all 929 chapters of “Tanakh” this year.

Sunday through Thursday, the students study a few chapters from the Prophets and on Fridays, they study the weekly Torah portion with Rabbi Lichtman.

“I couldn’t think of a better way to both prepare for service in the IDF and to honor the Shmita year, than by studying Tanakh each day,” said Rabbi Tuly Weisz, editor of “The Israel Bible” and founder of Israel365. “Rabbi Lichtman is an incredible scholar and role model, who I have so much personal gratitude for. It was by attending his classes some 20 years ago, that I began to appreciate how Israel is the number one theme throughout the entire Torah, and so I am thrilled he is now teaching “The Israel Bible” to these inspiring young men.”

Earlier this year, Israel365 partnered with Lev Hatorah to sponsor the lone soldier center and to provide a ‘home away from home’ for American young men who volunteered for service in the Israeli army.

Rabbi Lichtman’s “Tanakh Yomi” classes are being recorded and published every day on Youtube and as a podcast on Spotify. Since the audience is advanced Yeshiva students, the classes are on a high level and there are many Hebrew words and phrases that are not always translated.
