I want to join the IDF through Mahal. But I really would prefer to be a combat soldier. I don't really want to volunteer, learn Hebrew, move to Israel, etc, to sit at a desk and be a jobnik. Is there any way that I can know before I enlist whether I'd be a combat soldier or a jobnik?
I am in decent shape, about 6' 190 pounds, 21 years old. I will be a college graduate, but right now I don't know any Hebrew. Can I express when I enlist that I would prefer not to have a desk job? And if I get assigned to one anyway, am I stuck there for my entire service or is there any way to move?
