A Giving Society: Israeli Volunteers


These are the voices
of volunteers Coming from an
array of backgrounds Serving in various fields throughout National Civil Service This is the expression of their admirable devotion and passionate commitment to the State of Israel I was looking for a place where
I could contribute to my country I was not able to serve in the IDF Because it not accepted
In my community I searched online for
a place that best suited me in the National Civil Service I found United Hatzalah There, I provide assistance
to each and every volunteer By distributing
Various medical kits Which they use
To save lives I always grew up calling Israel my home and it didn’t really make sense for me to call Israel my home
and not live here. I chose to volunteer at a school
for kids with special needs because it’s something that
I’m very passionate about and I was involved with
all throughout high school. So when I made Aliya the obvious choice was to do Sherut Leumi at a school for
kids with special needs and I couldn’t think of a better place. I wanted to contribute to my country And I wanted to do it through the army But because I had medical problems I wasn’t able to enlist to the army So I chose to do Sherut Leumi I chose to serve in MDA (Magen David Adom) My job requires me to help the drivers on call I really enjoy what I do I also do shifts in the ambulances
and sometimes on the intensive care vehicles I’m very happy
to have find an outlet from which I’m able to
give back to the country that has given me so much Sherut Leumi
gave me the opportunity to serve my country in a way that would allow me to continue being in a religious environment. Next year
I will be continuing my service in Australia teaching the Jewish youth there
about Zionism and Judaism from a perspective of someone in Israel.
