Will you join us to show loving care as we provide food and gifts to widows and orphans in Israel? The Prophet Isaiah said, “‘Comfort, yes, comfort My people!’ says your God” (Isa. 40:1). Your gifts to our Food Project help us feed widows, Holocaust survivors and immigrants in Israel. Your gift to our Widows and Orphans Fund help us reach out in love to the lonely and grieving in Zion.
Be in good health. See the FAQ for more information on health requirements.
Have the recommendation of your family, pastor, and others in the community.
Have funds prepared to cover your food, lodging and other monthly expenses as well as round-trip airfare to and from Israel. (See the FAQ)
Have medical insurance that is valid outside your country in case of accident, injury or illness in Israel. (An expatriate insurance policy can be purchased in Israel through Bridges for Peace. More information is available upon request).
Realize that during your term of service with BFP, you are not coming on a tour or a vacation, but to serve in a vital and needed staff position.
Recognize that you are seen by the outside world as a volunteer with Bridges for peace, so the future of our work in Israel depends upon your Christian character and faithfulness.
