  • Meet the Jewish people who call this land home and get to know them as we volunteer, visit their communities, and hear their stories.

  • Be equipped as an ambassador on behalf of Israel
  • Deepen your faith
  • Watch your bible come alive
  • Learn hands-on practical skills, leadership, teamwork, basic construction, administration, farming, viticulture and more!
  • Receive discipleship, mentorship, and training from our leadership team, and experience positive life-shaping adventures with your fellow participants.
  • I was privileged to take part in HaYovel’s first young men’s discipleship program. It impacted my life, for good, in so many ways. During the program, I learned more about Israel and the Jewish people than I have during any other time period of my life. My eyes were opened to so many things in the Word of God, relating to Israel.

    Benjamin Wearp
    from Texas, USA
  • Challenge, vision, revival, revelation: these are just a few of the things that I experienced during the 2016 Sons of Zion program. If you have ever wondered if God has called you to something more, something greater than you imagined could be happening in the world today, this could be it! If you are looking for a dream to chase, you can’t go wrong chasing the dream of the King who will reign in Zion.

    Levi Mitchell
    from British Columbia, Canada
  • This discipleship program was a monumental and life-changing experience for me. It gave me the opportunity to learn about the people and land of Israel while also doing hands-on work that directly impacted the local economy. I was surrounded by a supporting team of righteous men, and learned new lessons about work ethic, dedication, and set-apart living.

    Daniel Eacrett
    from Washington, USA
  • God used this discipleship program with HaYovel to change my life forever. Compared to other programs I have taken part in, this program with HaYovel offers an unmatched experience of growing in spiritual maturity and directional clarity. The connection with the Jewish people and a new, three-dimensional understanding of my Bible has laid a strong spiritual foundation in my life for the years ahead.

    Andrew Parsons
    from Colorado, USA
  • I really enjoyed the sense of brotherhood we had with the Sons of Zion guys, the staff, and the evening prayer. It’s exceeded my expectations . . . and it has been a really good eye-opener, and led me to believe that the Bible is not just a religious document, but it is also a historic document, and a prophetic done. This is a very amazing, immersive experience, just to strengthen your relationship with the Father and Yeshua.

    Benna Lundquist
    Canada
  • God has lit a fire for the importance of Israel in my life that is never going to go out. The impact that it has had on my life and my personal growth has exceeded anything that I thought it ever could. If you are a young man who desires to make an impact for God’s Kingdom, who desires to be taught what a real leader is, and who desires to be discipled in the ways of God, this discipleship program is for you. This is life-changing experience that you will never regret.

    Nick Nemunaitis
    from Alabama, USA
  • I feel like I have grown so much closer to the Lord, so much closer that I don’t know how I would have lived without this before. One of the big things that I am going to be taking home with me is prayer, relationships, and special times we had. I would definitely recommend this discipleship program.

    Shane Yoder
    from Pennsylvania, USA
  • It was challenging, but it was the challenge that led to growth. It was tremendous growth opportunity and if you have a heart to serve God, to serve the Jewish people, to be involved in really fantastic ministry that is deeply impactful to the people who volunteer here and to the Jewish people.

    Cameron Morris
    from Colorado, USA
  • I found myself getting closer to the Lord, than I expected to ever be, and I have this burning and longing to know my Creator even more. I’d say the Lord has rocked my world, and it has been for the good.

Daughters of Zion Alumni are saying:

  • I highly recommend the Daughters of Zion program with HaYovel!!!! This was one of the best, most memorable experiences I have ever had! I made beautiful life giving friendships, I grew more into the person that God wants me to be, saw amazing places mentioned throughout the Bible and had the honor of serving the Jewish people… I will forever have this trip in Israel in my heart.

    Kaila Busby
    from Colorado, USA
  • For me, the Daughters of Zion program was a wonderful time of hard work and fun. The Father crafted purposeful friendships between us intern girls and also with other volunteers… My experience in the Land has boosted my confidence, expanded my horizons, blessed me with incredible memories and drawn me closer to the heart of God.

    Keturah Henderson
    from Ohio, USA
  • The Daughters of Zion program definitely changed my life for the better! Not only was I able to really connect to God’s heart for His Land by living and working in it for 3 months, but I also built amazing friendships with the other girls, made memories, and learned and grew so much! Most of all I came home with a stronger relationship with God and a clearer vision and direction of His mission for me and how to seek His Kingdom and change the world for His glory!

    Taryn Clements
    from Colorado, USA
  • It was just incredible. I was expecting to make friends, but I feel like I’ve made lifelong friends. One of the major things that I have learned here is the forgiveness and faithfulness of God. I feel just totally washed clean. Being here is the best decision I’ve ever made, and I don’t think anyone would ever regret coming.

    Cassie Bartell
    from Oklahoma, USA
  • My participation in the Daughters of Zion program was, I believe, the best experience in my life…. It was an opportunity for me to really reset my focus and priorities and pursue God with all my heart. I would recommend this program for any young lady seeking a renewed passion and purpose in life, a greater understanding of our Father’s love and righteousness, a connection to the foundation of our faith.

    Johanna Henderson
    from Ohio, USA
  • God’s just really changed me this trip. When I decided to come, that was one of the things that I was telling a few people, was I wanted to be changed, and I think God did that.

    Jordan Anderson
    from Oklahoma, USA
  • For the first two weeks, we had intensive discipleship classes, and morning devotions, I really liked doing that. One of the things that I expected when I came here, was that I would come back not the same person, that I would come back changed. I expected that much and I was right. This is the place where our Beloved resides, this where His kingdom is, this where His house is, this where His Spirit literally dwelled.

    Summer Middlebrook-Vogel
    from Minnesota, USA
  • We went through the characteristics of a virtuous woman, we went through prayer, and we talked about the spirit of the inner man, and we talked about a lot of things that I had only like covered the surface. It is a program that will help you grow, and it will be tough at times, but you have to go through tough times to become something beautiful, because everything beautiful takes time.
