website: "The standard work commitment we encourage is 3
weeks. Volunteers must begin a work program on Sunday or Monday
during the year, (program ends on Thursday), except for the
holiday black-out dates." In my case, since it was a long flight
from the USA, I wanted to stay a month. So I stayed 3 weeks at
one base, and 2 weeks at another.
At my first base, we had several volunteers that were staying
for only 2 weeks. You can't believe how quickly their time to
leave came, and they were all very sad that there time was up.
The next time I volunteer for Sar El, I plan on staying 6 weeks
that way, I will stay the full time at a couple of bases.
I understood that my being allowed to stay the for my second
base assignment, was dependant on me being a positive and
productive on the first base, and that I was one that did not cause any
problems. It only makes sense, why would Sar El want to host
someone that was causing problems.
