Caliber 3 is a great way to have a small "taste" of what it's like to be in the IDF (Israel Defence Forces). Situated in the beautiful Judean Hills (about half an hour from Jerusalem), the well trained and friendly staff take you through the...More

What an experience. Hearing Eitan and Boaz speak, and seeing them in action, gives you a real understanding of what a deep love of people and country is all about. This is an experience not to be missed.
