Many people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds come from abroad to volunteer in Israel, where they feel a deep connection to the people and want to contribute to Israeli society.

Volunteers who come from Switzerland, Singapore and Germany are not only enjoying the sunshine and energy of life in Israel. They are making a significant difference in the lives of Israelis by volunteering with trauma patients, autistic children and many others.

One volunteer says what she enjoys most is connecting with the Israeli people. Others rave about Tel Aviv, a cosmopolitan city with lovely beaches, cafes and energy.

Not only do these volunteers help Israelis, but they, too, benefit greatly from the experience.
