A Week To Remember

Since I first read about Sar-El in a magazine of the German-Israeli society (Deutsch-Israelische Gesellschaft) I have felt an increasing desire to participate in this program.

This increasing desire was caused by the ongoing unfairness in the media coverage as well as in the public opinion when it comes towards Israel. There are so many people that don’t see the need to learn more about history in order to actually understand the conflict between Israel and its enemies, but that are still very certain that Israel is always the aggressor. They either ignore all the rockets fired towards Israel or call them toy rockets like they couldn’t harm anybody; but as soon as Israel reacts towards these rockets in order to protect its citizens (as any state in the world is supposed to) they go out on the street to protest against Israel. When in the neighboring Syria however tens of thousands of Arabs are slaughtered by their own government or by terrorist groups, they seem not to care about. Read more >

The Davidi Ambulance Finally Arrives!

Above: Davidi’s wife Hasida, son, son-in-law and grandson.

Sar-El volunteers recently attended a dedication ceremony held in Tel Aviv to inaugurate the Davidi Ambulance, in honor of the memory of Sar-El Founder General Aharon Davidi (z”l). 

The ambulance was purchased through The American and Canadian Friends of Magen David Adom. All of us at Sar-El wish to express our thanks to volunteers and friends from around the world who donated money to this worthwhile cause. Davidi’s wife, Hasida, along with their son, son-in-law, and grandson all attended the dedication ceremony, along with Sar-El staff and volunteers.

Visiting Wounded Soldiers

Sar-El volunteers visit Beit Halochem (the organization for Israel’s disabled soldiers). Established in 1974 after the Yom Kippur War the organization has helped thousands of Israeli soldiers disabled during military conflict, readjust to life via sport activities as well as other physical and mental therapies. 


Making the Big Decision

By Rachel Lester

There are some decisions that will take me forever to make. My decision to take a semester off of school and volunteer for the Israeli army was nothing like that.
Of course, I had spent all summer thinking about Israel — who didn’t? I certainly wasn’t the only one of my friends checking JPost a hundred times a day, sharing every FIDF graphic, denouncing CNN, starting arguments online, and going to every rally, protest, and vigil. But that was what started to drive me crazy: no matter how much we all cared, we weren’t actually doing anything. Read more >

Coming Back For Another Great Adventure

Six years ago at age 50 I served my first SAR-EL Service and had an absolutely great time. I thought it couldn´t possibly be topped but my second service proved me wrong. In October 2014 I started my second SAR-El Service and once again a great adventure started.

I had just stepped out of the airplane when I was already welcomed by SAR-El at the Ben Gurion Airport which gave off a great first impression. Then there is the amazing Pamela Lazarus who within a few hours assigned us volunteers, well over 300, to different army bases. And Here I was sitting in a coach travelling to a base and meetingt many new people in my group. We were all guided by our Madricha who was in charge of us at the camp and assisted us in doing our service. Read more >

In Support of Sar-El

In the Czech Republic and the whole of Central Europe, we very often and closely return to the historical lesson of the Shoah. Events protesting against modern manifestations of traditional anti-Semitism take place on a regular basis. When the Bnej Israel Prague community under the supervision of Rabbi David Bohbot organized a demonstration under the statue of St. Wenceslas in the heart of Prague in summer 2014 (more precisely on June 24, 2014) for the release of three Israeli young men abducted by the radical Hamas, it opened a new chapter in a certain way. The topic was ruthless anti-Semitism turned directly against the heart of the Jews, against Israel.
