Rhoda Grill Haifa“Volunteering in Israel provides an opportunity to experience the country and its’ people in a way that visiting as a tourist simply cannot match. I had the chance to get to know both the clients in the two settings in which I was placed, and the dedicated staff which served them, and to be awed and inspired by everyone whom I met.” Rhoda Grill, Boston, 2015

“All of the children and the staff have given me such a warm welcome and I have never felt like a stranger in their midst. I can sincerely say that I have felt part of the volunteer team throughout the short time I have been here. I am very grateful to all of its members and am keenly aware that in other volunteer situations it can often take a much longer time to feel at home.”
