Tzvika is like a guardian angle that's always watching over your shoulder. I will come home to my room on my kibbutz and find a care package of food and candy waiting for me from Tzvika. The great air conditioner in my room is there because of Tzvika. And if I ever have a problem with the army, Tzvika is on the phone in minutes trying to fix it. Actually, not minutes, he's on the phone in seconds. If I'm speaking with friends, and someone brings up a problem they're having on the kibbutz or in the army, the first question is always "Have you called Tzvika?" One day, when I'm older, I hope I can take care of Lone Soldiers like that too. But until then, Tzvika's the man.
Israeli born soldiers have their families, Lone Soldiers have Tzvika Levy! Not only do Lone Soldiers have to deal with many things which regular soldiers do not, but they also often have to do so without many family and friends to help and support them. That's where Tzvika comes in- no matter how small or large of an issue, Tzvika is always there to help. It may be as simple as a useful tip or a call to a commanding officer, whether it is 2 AM or 2 PM, Tzvika is always available to help any Lone Soldier in the IDF.
