Volunteering in Mishan Efal

A beautiful area next to Ramat Gan, originally a old kibbutz that is converted into a community for elderly people and home to some students, from which some live on their own in a apartment and quite a few in a care home (Looks a lot like a Hospital) where I volunteer at.

While helping you will get the change to take care of holocaust survivors and people who fought in the wars during the rise of the state of Israel. Volunteering in Mishan Efal is a rewarding job since you will get a good apartment on a beautiful location and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with everyone else who lives and works in Mishal Efal, and since Israel is very cheap with public transportation going somewhere does not effect your budget to much, but most of all taking your effort to help other people who cannot take care of themselves is one of the tasks in the kingdom of Elohim.

I was able to make friends quickly with some younger and older people who also work at this “community”. I don’t speak Ivriet very well but I was able to communicate speaking English and German and the little Ivriet I can speak, Russian is also spoken by quite a few Russians workers and Polish who live there.

How did I get to work at this place? Via a volunteering organization (HIP) in The Netherlands who connected me with Mishan Efal.

What I needed to volunteer at Mishan Efal? A interview with the organization,and some paperwork showing that I had no criminal records, and had to be officially declared healthy by a doctor. Also a specific insurance which is necessary if you volunteer in Israel.
