Living Arragements

As a participant in the Coexistence Track, you'll make your home in Jaffa, where many different Jewish and Arab communities live side-by-side.  You'll live in a fully-furnished apartment along with your fellow participants.  Each apartments include a kitchen stocked with all necessary utensils, a washing machine and wireless internet.

 

A central component of Tikkun Olam's philosophy involves living amongst the populations we volunteer with. This creates a strong connection between our volunteers and the local residents and enables them to truly become members of the community. In Jaffa, you'll live in a diverse neighborhood where Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardi Jews, Ethiopian Jews, Arab Christians and Arab Muslims all live side-by-side.  

 

So you won't just volunteer for coexistence -- you'll live it!

 

Along with volunteers from around the world, you'll also be living with Israeli peers. The ongoing interaction with young adults from all over the world will help enrich and enhance your personal experience in Israel.
