Yocheved Kashi dies: All About How She Died!
At the age of seventeen, Yocheved Kashi enrolled in the Haganah. After the establishment of the State of Israel, she enlisted in the IDF Women’s Corps, where she rose through the ranks from class commander to lieutenant and eventually took charge of the parachute folding unit at Tel Nof’s parachuting school.
Kashi wanted to give skydiving a try, so she enquired about enrolling in a course—only to be denied access on the grounds that she was a woman.
Even while other women, like Israeli military hero Hannah Szenes, parachuted during World War II, Ynet pointed out that this was the case.
Kashi was featured on the cover of the Israeli daily B’Mahana after she made headlines by parachuting 12 times after years of waiting to join the military.
Since the survival of the combat paratroopers depends heavily on the fulfillment of the folders’ duties, it was obvious to Yocheved that she should bear the weight of responsibility allocated to her and the other folders as commander of the folding unit. She exemplifies the spirit of fearless innovation.

It was in 1950 that a young woman called Yocheved Kashi, then a 21-year-old officer battled to enroll in the Israeli Defense Force‘s (IDF) parachute training and eventually won.
Since the survival of the combat paratroopers depends heavily on the fulfillment of the folders’ duties, it was evident to Yocheved that she should experience the tremendous duty handed to her and the other folders in her role as leader of the folding unit. She exemplifies the spirit of fearless innovation.
