Stephanie with the Shutaf TeamQUOTE: This was an amazing experience and far surpassed my expectations. The service placement was a perfect fit, the organization was very welcoming and so appreciative of my service. I felt at home during my stay in Jerusalem and can’t thank the women of Skilled Volunteers for Israel for all of their hard work and support during my experience. Stephanie DeSouza, Pennsylvania, 2016



“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.”
