News:

  • 2022-10-09: Sar-El is aware of attempts by obsessive anti-Israel activists to attract attention by making assertions against our organization which are simply non-issues. As matters now stand, Sar-El is unaware of whether legal process has indeed been authorized and issued.  Sar-El has not been served with any notice from the Court that a charge is pending against us.  In any event, we are in consultation with our legal team and will be ready to resist all attempts to intimidate Canadian Jews working to build, deepen and strengthen their connections to the Jewish state.  We have a long history of support from the Jewish community and are confident that such support will continue.  Simply put, we will not be cowed.

Sar-El The Volunteering Experience

History

In the summer of 1982, in the midst of the Galilee War, Golan Heights settlements faced the disastrous prospect of losing their entire agricultural crop. The majority of able-bodied settlers were called up for army reserve duty and entire farms, with crops already ripened, were left unattended, due to the acute manpower shortage. Dr. Aharon Davidi (z”l ), the former head of the I.D.F. Paratroopers and Infantry Corps, was then directing the Golan Heights community and cultural activities.

Touched by the settlers’ distress, he sent a number of friends as a recruitment team to the United States.
