Bay AreaVolunteers for Israel Northern California Region (510) 387-6000 Fax: (844) 514-1948 [email protected] vfi-usa.org Regional Manager Jack Fruchtman [email protected] Our Mission Connecting American and international volunteers of all ages to Israel by providing civilian support to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Partnering with Israeli military and non-military organizations enables volunteers to work side-by-side with IDF soldiers, performing necessary civilian tasks on IDF bases. Promotes solidarity and goodwill among Israelis, American Jews and other friends of Israel. No matter the task, the focus is always to lend hands and to assure Israel that it does not stand alone. Volunteers spend one, two or three weeks living, eating and working with the troops, and like-minded volunteers and have a potentially life changing experience. VFI is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization chartered in the U.S.
