Shoshana Nurkin - Efrat-born, pride of 2 cities, has assisted, helped, translated and smoothed the integration and service of 1000+ lone soldiers as a National Service volunteer at the Jerusalem Lone Soldier Center. Shoshana is the ultimate combination of brains, class, heart and niceness. All of us are extremely thankful for how much you've invested in us - the soldiers, volunteers, staff and everyone who interacts with the Center. You always smile, through good times and bad. You always stay positive and motivate those around you. We are so thankful for all that you have done for us. We know you'll keep helping out, but it will be hard not seeing you everyday :( ...

Meet Elisha, from Edgware, London. He serves as a combat soldier in the Kfir Brigade.

Elisha attended a gap year program in Israel, which was his inspiration to make Aliyah and join the army. Elisha said, “The Lone Soldier Center helped me a lot before I enlisted, they advised me, told me who to speak to and where to go. Now that I’m already in the army, I try to pop in whenever I’m off base."

Thus far, his service has been an interesting, yet difficult adjustment, and in his own words: “I don't think Israelis appreciate the fact that they can go home to and enjoy the small things, such as chicken soup. But it is okay because the lone soldier community has become my family, here in Israel.”

Elisha was most surprised when he came across the kindness and helpfulness of his other fellow Israeli soldiers.When he first drafted, he had very poor Hebrew skills, and his squad took it upon themselves to help on a daily basis and improve his Hebrew.

After the army, Elisha plans to stay in Israel to study, though his major is still undecided.
