Meaningful Volunteering

Students at Midreshet Moriah have the unique opportunity of volunteering at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center as well as a wide range of organizations and projects in Yerushalyim.  This year (5775), the Shaarei Tzedek volunteers are working with newborn babies. Some of these girls plan to study to be doctors, nurses or work in other fields related to medicine. Others see it as a fun and interesting opportunity that gives them great experience.

 

                                        

Besides the hospital, our Volunteer Program is a fantastic way to do hands-on volunteering with all sorts of amazing and worthwhile organizations:

  • One Family Fund - working with victims of terror and their families
  • Kedma Medical Clowns
  • WIZO - volunteering with women and children at WIZO's center/shelter
  • Kiruv Chavruta at Midreshet Rachel
  • SPECIAL NEEDS
    • Darkaynu – learning in our Beit Midrash with students from Darkaynu
    • ALEH - working with children with severe disabilities one-on-one
    • Shutaf 
    • Simcha L'Yeled 
    • Shalva - working with individual families and also at the facility
  • FOOD PACKAGING
    • Chasdei Naomi

    • Pantry Packers
  • The Ethiopian National Project - after-school assistance in Jerusalem schools with Ethiopian teenagers 
  • Kedma Student Volunteer Corps
  • Nofei Yerushalayim - visiting a home for the elderly

The goals of our program: To learn what the true essence of chesed is by actually doing it; to provide you an opportunity to give of yourself without any expectations in return; and to inspire you to want to continue doing chesed long after you have completed your year. It is for this reason that we also involve you in group chesed activities throughout the year, such as the Chanukkah Carnival we ran for children from Sderot; raising money for Sderot's struggling businesses by packaging and selling Mishlo'ach Manot with items purchased from Sderot; raising money, buying gifts, and throwing bridal showers for brides from Gush Katif; picking and packaging fruit and vegetables for the needy; and more.

To ensure that everything is running smoothly and that you are satisfied with your placement, the Volunteer Coordinator meets with each group of volunteers approximately once a month.
