is bringing overseas tourists to Israel to volunteer their vacation days taking part in 'tikkun olam' (repairing the world).
The program is a 90-minute session where visiting groups, such as
bar and bat-mitzvah parties, family groups, youth groups etc. have the opportunity to make their contribution to Israeli society in a meaningful way.
The groups pack food staples at a food pantry and the food is then donated to impoverished Israelis.
