  • Basketball game with SHEKEL’s basketball team
  • Soccer game with SHEKEL’s Hapoel Katamon Soccer Team
  • Packaging boxes together with people with special needs in SHEKEL’s Packaging Factory
  • Designing new embroidery products at SHEKEL’s Sewing Studio

A Standard Visit Includes (segments interchangeable as necessary):

  • Brief tour of SHEKEL’s Vocational Rehabilitation Headquarters
  • Film (20 min.)
  • Volunteer Activity

We would be delighted to host families for a variety of unforgettable, fulfilling events.
