Hesed (lovingkindness in Hebrew) is an exciting, Christian adult-volunteer program to Israel, hosted by The Friends of Israel Australia. Participants will work alongside Israelis doing manual labor and giving their time, effort, and resources to help us serve the people of Israel practically.
It’s an opportunity to not just see Israel, but also serve Israel!
