Sherut Leumi is a great way to spend a year in Israel. It is a year that allows you to really get a feel for Israeli culture and a chance to give to the Israeli society. In addition, the time spent in Sherut provides you a sense of what it would be like to live in Israel.
Think about what type of volunteer work you’d be interested in doing and where in the country you would like to work.
Get in touch with a Rakezet (coordinator) from one of the organizations (Bat Ami and Aguda have Anglo coordinators)
Click here for a complete list of Bat Sherut organizations and their contact information.
The Rakezet will help find possible places for you to work. They might ask you to do a Skype interview, depending on the organization, or they may just accept you without an interview.
*Lone Bnot Sherut can request to be placed in an apartment with other Lone Bnot Sherut that will be equipped with certain amenities not found in regular apartments, such as a washing machine, oven, and wifi. If you choose not to join one of these apartments, the Sherut organizations will try their best to assist you in receiving these services anyways.
Ezrachim Olim who are serving in the army or Sherut Leumi have the choice of determining their Aliyah date. The date can be either the one on which their service begins, or the date on which they are issued a Teudat Zehut. This allows them to maximize the time in which they can access their governmental benefits.
