info you need to be aware of
● Most Israelis of both sexes, 18 to
21 years old, are called to serve in the Israeli
Defence Forces. Profuse presence of uniformed people in public places does not
necessarily mean that something exceptional is happening.
● Hosting families
will make their best to let you feel comfortable. If you have
any doubt or problem, do not hesitate in openly discussing it
with your hosts and/or the Camp Director.
● In Israel, security measures and
practices in public places -and especially airports- can
sometimes seem severe. Yet, they are always well meant - for
● Geographically, Israel's
territory is part of a narrow land corridor between two
continents: Eurasia & Africa. This corridor
was already described in biblical times as a migration route for
many fowl species. Over
500 million birds
that come and go every spring and autumn over Israel spread
small amounts of pollen and other antigens. A tiny percentage of
first time visitors may develop sensibility (allergies) to such
substances. Spices you might taste for the first time
could have the same effect. Please let your hosts know
immediately if you develop any kind of skin or respiratory
affection, in order to let them help you overcome it.
