Israel ops: Livnot U'Lehibanot.

I’ve been trying to help my brother find his volunteering niche for his stay here in Israel, and the latest idea has been the Israel-volunteer organization, Livnot U’Lehibanot. Here there are two centers, one in Jerusalem and one in Tzfat, and since we’re seeking something that involves handiwork and building, Sfat seems like the place to go, considering the North’s condition.

I have friends that worked for the one in Jerusalem and were a bit disappointed since it seemed to be overpopulated with volunteers; there is this perception: volunteers > impact. Thus, it seems, not as meaningful. My cousin, however, swears by it – she was very heavily involved years ago when she first got to Israel, unaffiliated and single.

The one in Tzfat is supposedly a deeper program, higher impact and a better time. Hopefully it’ll work out for my brother, who is trying to make the most of his time here.
