Israel’s winter season (not a lot of snow, but plenty of rain) begins in late November and continues through the end of March. This is an important time of the year for agriculture and the small farmers of Israel need a lot of help.
Our winter volunteer trips are for men only and run from January through mid-March. Volunteer work is mostly of pruning vineyards in locations all throughout Israel’s central mountain range. We may also be planting trees or helping with various other projects on nearby farms.
Our spring pruning trip options range from two weeks up to eight weeks. It is a wonderful time for men of all ages to work and fellowship together with like-minded men. Coming to the pruning is a life-changing experience you will never forget!
Fathers and sons (must be age 13 or older) are encouraged to come together! Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. No one is too old to come to the pruning!
Choose your favorite trip and click “apply”. Follow the instructions to submit your application.
It will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to fill out your application and will require a photocopy of your passport and a $200 non-refundable processing fee (this amount will be deducted from your trip cost).
Once you submit your application and pay your processing fee, someone from our staff team will reach out to you and schedule a phone call or video call. We look forward to meeting you and this call will give you an opportunity to get answers to any questions you may have and we can give you additional details about what to expect and what you should bring with you.
After you have an interview with one of our staff members, we’ll let you know how and when to book your flight to Israel. It’s very important that you DO NOT BOOK YOUR FLIGHT until you receive a go-ahead from our staff team. We will be filing the paperwork for your visa to enter the country as well as picking you up from the airport. We’ll let you know when it’s okay to book a ticket.
Between when you submit your application and the day you arrive in Israel, we’ll send you all the information you need to be prepared, pack everything you need, and be ready for a life-changing experience you will remember forever.
We’ll be waiting at the airport for you!
The best spiritual experience of my life. A labour of pure love in the vineyards of Samaria is an act of gratitude for what Christ has done for me and my family. It is a spiritual investment in a generational future.
The experience of a lifetime. Knowing you are fulfilling prophecy by working the vineyards in Samaria has been the most fulfilling event in my spiritual life since my salvation experience in 1970.
I’ve been to several pruning trips with HaYovel, and each one has been very life-changing and defining for me as a man. I would highly recommend the pruning trip to any man that places a high value on pursuing God, investing in the lives of others, and being challenged to grow as a man.
My experience with HaYovel has been a learning experience like no other. It has helped me to see the significance of what we are doing in Israel and how it coincides with fulfilling prophesy. It also has helped put into perspective God’s role of Israel in His great plan for humanity. And has greatly increased my love for our Jewish brothers and sisters.
