Attached is a link to the Sar-El web page.

Sar-El is the national "Volunteers for Israel" program - usually consisting of a two weeks of volunteer work on an Israeli army base. There is also a special, four week hospital volunteers program.

The tickets are offered at a discount rate - and can be open-ended. I know that a number of programs aimed at college students combine a two week Sar-El experience, with a tour program. When I first went - years ago - some of our students stayed on for an additional week to visit relatives after the volunteer and tour segment had ended.
