Volunteering For Israel

Regarding “Volunteers For Israel Starts New Program” (July 19, page 5), VFI offers three exciting ways to volunteer on an IDF Army Base in a civilian capacity and also tour Israel. These programs are:  VFI Plus, VFI Plus Advanced and VFI Plus Archaeology.

The VFI Plus programs offer unique opportunities to tour and volunteer while immersing one’s self in Israeli culture. A five-minute video describing the programs can be found at

Volunteers for Israel is associated with Sar-El, a nonprofit organization that administers the program in Israel and offers a way to contribute to the State of Israel in a very direct way.

I’m the Great Lakes regional manager and have been involved in organizing and leading these exciting new additions to VFI’s program options.
