The Algemeiner reports: – The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) will soon begin recruiting Jewish youths from abroad to serve in technological roles in the military’s Computer Service Directorate.

The recruitment program will be similar to the IDF’s existing Garin Tzabar program, which caters to Jews who choose to immigrate to Israel and serve in the army. The new program has been dubbed Garin Lotam.
