My name is Jens, Im a 20years old guy living in the capital of Sweden (Stockholm). Lived here my whole life, been to other countries within Europe but still I havent been to Israel. Im jewish by birth thou Im not really religious other than celebrating shabbat at the synagog on various occasions. I've gone to a jewish school, but Im worthless in hebrew.
On my spare time I hang out with friends and my girlfriend, also working out and staying in shape is important to me. I love watching/training MMA, mostly UFC. I'd say Fedor is the greatest (if dont know him his the MMA Heavy Weight Champion of the world)
I've recently finished my service for the Swedish Army, went there a year as a Infantry Communicator mainly on foot and also working in a SISU (a armored personel vehicle). The swedish army can be pretty tough, mostly depending on what your entitled to do. But one thing you learn is to embrace the cold, living out in the minus 10-30 celsius climate for 2 weeks is not to be underestimated.
For my future plans I want to join the Mahal IDF in order to support my religious country, I see Israel as a safehaven for all Jews and I intend to make an effort on keeping it safe.
Also an unanswered question I still haven't found anywhere on the site is concerning my previous service to the Swedish Army, in other words - do any of you know if it makes any difference if I've done my military service in Sweden? Will it affect my chances in joining the mahal IDF in a negative/positive way?
Also I thought I'd add a picture so here it is:
Any help on this is very much appriciated.
