IDF welcomes volunteers from all around the world and celebrates International Volunteer Day with a variety of volunteer programs
Sar-El Volunteer Program – Volunteering to the IDF
Sar-El, the National Project for Volunteers for Israel enables both Jews and non-Jews of all ages and from any country to come to Israel and volunteer in the IDF. Wearing official IDF uniforms, the volunteers tour Israel and package boxes of food for combat soldiers. They play an important role in handling logistical needs and annually save the IDF hundreds of thousands of hours in manpower.
Since 1983, Sar-El brought more than a hundred thousand volunteers to Israel. Yesterday, the international community also marked International Volunteer Day.
Staying in Israel for several weeks, the participants share a true IDF experience on IDF bases.
IDF embraces volunteering abroad, with aid delegations to disaster sites all around the world.
Sar-El, the National Project for Volunteers for Israel, brings approximately 4,000 Jews and non-Jews from 30 countries to Israel. Volunteering in the IDF for several weeks, Sar-El volunteers save the IDF hundreds of thousands of hours in manpower.
