Volunteer to Help Holocaust Survivors in Israel

Rights for Survivors Project

If you are visiting Israel and have the time to perform a mitzvah, volunteers are needed to help alleviate the difficult plight of many survivors of the Shoah in Israel. There are a number of organizations working to improve and enhance the lives of survivors. However, Israeli and international law concerning the rights of survivors has changed, and much needs to be done to educate survivors and their families about these changes.

Volunteers will attend a 10-hour training seminar and then either staff a telephone hotline or visit the homes of survivors to help them fill out forms and to explain changes in the law with respect to their rights and benefits. Fluency in Hebrew, Yiddish, or an East European language is required.
