About the Atalef Foundation

The Atalef Foundation employs 8 workers and hundreds of volunteers.

Atalef is a foundation of Shayetet-13 (Israel’s Elite Navy Seal) veterans whose mission is to maintain an active and supportive community of veterans and to help its members integrate, lead and contribute to Israeli society in the spirit of the values of the Shayetet-13.

The foundation nurtures and supports soldiers and alumni of the unit, those affected physically and mentally, as well as those who were affected as a result of the activities in the Kishon, while embracing bereaved families. The foundation’s goal is to empower, strengthen, and assist its members in instilling Shayetet-13 values within Israeli society. It seeks to bring about lasting positive impact among victims of the security system, at-risk youth, and Holocaust survivors.
