We can once again concentrate on our core mission of sending volunteers to Israel . We are pleased with the numbers of volunteers that have gone this year and have signed up for next year,  after all the hassles and disruptions caused by Covid.

Sar-El The Volunteering Experience

Read about the latest Sar-El Canada volunteer experiences here.

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.
