Two Tracks

Aliza's Track - Sherut Leumi+

I made aliya from London and did sherut leumi myself working with Russian olim - I have run programs for Russians for many years. I have B"H six kids and my Israeli husband and I love having the girls over for classes and a home-cooked dinner. My track is for girls who want to do full-time Sherut, but live together with other English-speakers and benefit from extra-curricular social and learning activities. Many of the girls in my track have just finished a year in seminary, and are ready to live independently.

Yarden's Track - Extra Support

My name is Yarden and I grew up in an English-speaking family in Israel. I'm a professional social worker. My track is for girls who want extra support. They get reduced work hours, and one day off a week for Yom Hakshara (enrichment) including life-skills classes, and workshops to help in Klitah (adjustment to Israel) as well as getting ready for life during and after Sherut. Girls in this track also have mentors who visit their apartments regularly to make sure everything is going smoothly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to make Aliya to do Sherut Leumi? The recent law changes have now made it possible to do Sherut Leumi on a volunteer visa. You still need to do a lot of paperwork and preparation (give yourself a few months ahead of time to work on it). You will get the same benefits of a lone Bat Sherut except that you will not have free medical insurance and free ulpan.

What kind of job can I get in Sherut Leumi? You can serve nearly anywhere, from educational field to health, government offices or non profit orgnaizations, to working with elderly or special needs. We also have jobs in agriculture, tour guiding and working with animals. Our Rakezet will interview you and help you figure what types of jobs will work best for your personality and ability.

Do I work in Hebrew or English? There are some jobs that require English but most jobs are in Hebrew and we encourage the girls to take a job where they will learn the language. It is very important in the integration process to work on Hebrew and Sherut is a great way to do that! By the end of the year many girls are mostly fluent!
