Ya well I am still very jealous! ha-ha! Had a good long look at the Sar-El website today & got some good info from there! But it looks like i will have to plan it very carefully! Work & life obligations! But i think as Cli_123 says its an experience well worth the effort! Not to mention I can help out with some long overdue man power!!

Luckily only 3 weeks have gone by since your post on the forum when you realised you couldn't join the IDF. Sar-el will probably suit you down to the ground, and if you have seen the videos I posted on that thread today it would have given you some ideas of what to expect. So, good luck with it and it will be appreciated by Israel.

Default About my last in tsahal

I would like to share with you my last photos shot in an israeli base during april 2010. Once more i formed a group of 10 volunteers among my friends (all non-jewish). we were sent into a base, in the middle of no-where, in the Neguev desert, not far of Egypt. Our task was to clean decontamination tools.Something funny: our 2 warrant officers were born in Irak and Iran and they could'nt stop querelling... We worked only one week because the second week we travelled, going to a military parade to another, participating to the independance festivities.

Greetings from the UK, God Bless Israel!

philtang,

Great photos. I recognized where you were by the forklift photo in particular.

One hot place.

Thank you again.

It’s great fun, as well as being a fulfilling experience. Although the work isn't very taxing (some of the people in my group were in their seventies and eighties!), you will be expected to work for up to eight hours a day alongside army personnel and/or civilian workers, so a reasonable level of health and fitness is expected, especially in the summer months when the temperatures can be very high. You will be have to supply a medical report from your doctor along with your application.

You will have to pay for your airfare (though you may be able to get a small discount from ElAl), as well as food and hotel expenses at the weekend. There is a free hostel available in Jaffa, though this seems to fill up fairly quickly. There are also discounts available for other hotels and hostels throughout the country.
All food and accommodation is supplied whilst on the base, along with one full day and one half day trips to various places around the country.

more details can be obtained from their web-site sar-el.org

Default experience in zahal

Joining Zahal is going to be a growing experience and modulate your character. The comradity, sense of purpose and respect for human lives are some of the core principles of Zahal.
I know several young men and women who did this and had a very rewarding experience.
