What to Expect

Expect…

The work is real.
  • to be housed in IDF barracks; men and women separately
  • to wear IDF fatigues, while on base.
  • to be served three kosher meals daily in the base dining room.
  • to have a five-day work week, with, possibly, one or more off-base tours

    The friendships are real too.
  • to meet and work with Israelis from all walks of life.
  • to enjoy lectures, off base tours, and other evening activities.
  • to enjoy your 3-night weekends off base.
  • to likely get a discount at some hotels, on weekends.
  • to get free weekend hostel accommodation, when available
  • to receive a genuinely warm welcome for volunteering.
    But you fit right in.

    The uniforms may fit you.
