Pioneering Israeli youth movement Ayalim (Hebrew for “deer”) is offering the opportunity for young adults in their 20s and 30s to spend this summer volunteering in Israel for just $1,000, including round-trip airfare, room and board.

Ayalim is a neo-Zionist organization that is developing the Negev and the Galilee. The relatively new organization needs volunteers — ability to speak Hebrew not required — to work alongside Israeli students in building ecological houses and structures in student and entrepreneurial villages in the Negev, a desert region in the south of Israel.

With The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles footing most of the bill, the trip — taking place from July 9 through August 5 — costs participants $1,000, which is less than a regular round-trip airline ticket to Israel.

Ayalim’s vision for a new type of Zionism consists of building communities, including student and entrepreneurial housing, in undisputed and underused territories around Israel.
