thought of being a kibbutz volunteer in Israel?
My name is John Carson, I'm an English backpacker and I was a kibbutz
volunteer for over two years -- and had a fantastic time! This site
will offer tips, hints and information on being a kibbutz volunteer,
what Israel is like and what you can get up to over there

read online, e-mail to friends or print out for handy reference.

me just state that I don't live in Israel and am not an agency of
any kind so can't organize a place on a kibbutz for you. I
get no money for this site from an official kibbutz volunteer office;
it's just a passion of mine that I produce so people can learn more
about the experience. Click
here for the main office in Israel.
also had a book published called Beer And Bagels For Breakfast.
This is an informative guide to being a volunteer on a kibbutz
in Israel. I have been a volunteer four times now and, believe
me, you will not understand what a good time can be had unless
you try it. Beer And Bagels For Breakfast is a diary of
those brilliant days as a kibbutz volunteer. It is fast becoming
THE volunteer bible! Buy it here.
welcome any questions about being a kibbutz volunteer -- just e-mail
me. Hope you find it useful and decide to backpack to Israel to
be a kibbutz volunteer.
is a page of kibbutz volunteer information here
