Summer Israel Volunteer Experience

This six week journey will enhance your relationship with Israel and Israelis through significant hands-on volunteer opportunities in a unique Israeli community.  During this adventure, you will experience day-to-day life in Israel by living in apartments in Bat Yam, interacting with Israelis and volunteering in the local community.  Onward Israel Bat Yam will enable you to mold your own experience: you will volunteer four days a week, and will also have significant free time for your own exploration of Tel Aviv and central Israel.  Group activities, opportunities to interact with Israeli peers and organized excursions round out this exciting and dynamic opportunity.   Toronto’s Onward Israel program in Bat Yam, a suburb of Tel Aviv, is a unique collaboration between the Jewish Agency for Israel, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, Canada Israel Experience and Young Judaea Israel.
