The Warm Corner Project

Yashar LaChayal has opened 39 Warm Corners in different communities throughout Israel!

Warm Corners are shelters for soldiers, set aside at the entrance to communities in dangerous regions. These Warm Corners have kitchens stocked by our amazing volunteers, with food and drinks for the benefit of combat soldiers on patrol in the area. In addition, there are charging stations for phones that may not have been charged in a while due to long periods away from base, a table and chairs, and last but not least, couches for the soldiers to rest and relax on.

The Warm Corners have been an amazing success, one which Yashar LaChayal is very proud of, and we plan on building more!

Why a Warm Corner?

  • To show support for the brave men and women defending Jewish communities in far-flung areas.
  • A community with a Warm Corner in place will draw soldiers to the area, giving residents a greater feeling of security.
  • Additionally, soldiers provided with the food and beverages (especially coffee!) that a Warm Corner has to offer them (all free of charge, of course) will return to their patrol routes rested and refreshed. Whether it is soup and a hot drink in the cold winter, or soda and ice cream in the summer, soldiers in the area know that they can always stop by for a well-deserved break!
