IDF appeals for more volunteers


We are all saddened by the news that Israeli civilians are once again being targeted by Arab terrorists. Whether the victims are Israelis leaving synagogue worship or simply a father and son going about their day, the pictures emanating from Israel in the past week reveal a populace on edge as funerals mourn the dead.

The Israeli government has responded to this spike in terrorist activity by raising Israel to its highest violence alert, reminiscent of the Second Intifada 20 years ago.

What can we do to help? The IDF has called up reservists and activated more military units to patrol the streets and countryside against terrorism. As a result, a large number of IDF bases have newly requested help in the form of more Sar-el volunteers. They need this assistance - - working in warehouses to pack medical supplies and medicines.

While we are safely on the sidelines as we watch the violence spiral in Israel, we can do something concrete to show our support for Israel in these difficult times. Israel needs us now to step up and volunteer on IDF bases more than ever. Please consider volunteering one, two, or three weeks of your time and effort through Sarel Australia. To apply to volunteer, please click here:

You will get back more than you give. And the experience will be life-changing.
