The National Service Group Amishav

In the first Hebrew city, the “city that never sleeps,” the Amishav National Service group aims to bring the different ends of the local continuum closer together.

The National Service girls work with the garin based in the yeshiva and conduct a wide variety of activities in Tel Aviv whose goal is to build bridges between the secular and religious around the common denominator of Jewish identity. The Amishav group provides a social and spiritual framework for the National Service girls, which gives them an opportunity for personal development and growth.

Projects include: Meaningful and fun activities before Jewish holidays, in malls and other central locations in the city; open workshops for children in public parks; mentoring of children in single-parent families, booths that disseminate information about Judaism in the Azrieli Mall and other central areas, Kabbalat Shabbat for children in the community from both religious and secular families, and distributing flowers on Thursdays at Ichilov Hospital. The activities are supervised by members of the garin.

Shiurim: Every week the girls have an evening of learning as well as another shiur that takes place at the home of one of the garin members. The girls also enjoy a variety of group activities.

Shabbat and relationship with the garin families: The National Service girls are considered an integral part of the Torani community. Each girl has an “adoptive” family that offers a warm place to land in the big city. The families provide the girls with a listening ear, advice and guidance, and an open home at all times.

Once every three weeks the girls spend Shabbat in the community. They are hosted by garin families, attend special shiurim, and enjoy a special bonding experience.

Requirements: These National Service slots are for girls who are interested in a year of meaningful work and self-sacrifice for the Jewish people. Applicants must believe in and identify with the goals of the garin, and be seeking personal and spiritual growth.

If you think big and want a year of demanding, challenging and meaningful service, you are invited to contact contact the coordinator, Shira shukrun, at 052-3115848 or
