Have you already been to Israel and seen Masada and the Western Wall?

Are you interested in experiencing sites and seeing culture that is rarely encountered during basic touring in Israel?

Volunteers for Israel (VFI) Plus Advanced is designed specifically for VFI-Sar El volunteers who want to see and experience “off-the-beaten-path Israel.”

This 17-day program from Dec. 7-23 is all-inclusive and includes two weeks of volunteering on an Israeli Defense Forces base and eight days of touring with a professional Israeli guide. The touring includes a private bus, high-quality lectures and discussions, four-star hotels in three cities, entrance fees, tips and transportation, arrival and departure transfers, kosher meals and evening programs on an IDF base. Visit Haifa, Akko, Rosh Hanikra, Jerusalem, the Negev Desert and Mizpe Ramon.

In addition to signing up through Gil Travel, all U.S. volunteers must apply through regional VFI channels for the application and screening process.

For application, details and rates, visit or contact VFI Great Lakes Regional Director Carol Kent at (248) 865-8580 or
