The Family Division, Crushing and Heritage, the Ministry of Defense, now offers an entirely online application for the issuance of a family certificate.
Members of the Space Family who fall under the “Law on the Families of Soldiers Who Perished in the Battle (Rewards and Rehabilitation) 1950” can register for a username and password on the website.
After registering, select a certificate issuance category, complete the online application and upload an up-to-date passport photo.
Currently, orphans and bereaved siblings aged 18 and over who do not yet have an official certificate will receive a text message with a link to complete the process.
The issuance of an entire family certificate is not subject to membership in a representative organization or payment of a membership fee. This certificate, for the avoidance of doubt, does not confer any rights under the Families Law, or any law, and does not add to the rights enumerated in the Soldiers’ Families Law and its regulations, as well as any other legislation conferring rights.
Aside from the digital process through the website, it is possible to submit applications for the issuance of a family certificate through the division districts, on days of public reception or by sending a copy of the application form and passport photo by Israel Post to the treating district.
