VOLUNTEERING ON SAREL IS A GREAT EXPERIENCE

 by Wendy Shneider, Editor of Hamilton Jewish News, May 2014

 

At 12 Sar-El trips and counting, Gord Garshowitz is more typical then one might think: Of the 4,000 people from 30 countries around the world who sign up with the organization every year, more than 60 per cent, like Garshowitz, are repeat volunteers.   As a member of the board of Sar-El Canada, the retired teacher’s responsibilities include conducting screening interviews with local applicants,  so he is very well-acquainted with the community members who gathered at the home of Ralph and Bev Orman in late April to talk about their recent Sar-El experiences. Joining them were Larry Cohen and Sharon Levy, Flora and Allan Rams, Doreen Korman and Karen Beer.  

 

 

 

Summer camp for adults. That was the general consensus on how best to describe the Sar-El experience, with its communal living, communal showers, bad food, absence of technology but with plenty of cameraderie and feeling the love from a  specially-assigned counselor  whose only concern was to look after your every need.   The fact that days are spent counting inventory, checking bullets or scraping  adhesive tape off antennae with an exacto knife rather than swimming, water-skiing or  tennis lessons seems like a minor detail.

 

 

 

Couples who sign up for Sar-El are assigned to  separate barracks,  but that only made it more fun for Ralph and Bev Orman, for whom the highlight of the trip was getting to know their bunkmates, who hailed from Australia, Germany, the U.S. and Canada.  “The average age in my bunk was about 80,” said Ralph Orman, who recalls waking up every morning looking forward to having fun with “an amazing group of guys.”

 

 

 

“The group experience was marvelous,” said Karen Beer, but so too were meeting and talking with “all these beautiful soldiers.”

 

 

 

“They were gracious, respectful and appreciative. It was a huge thrill to be amongst them,” she said.
