The SHALEM movement – National Service for the Adult

The Shalem movement – National Service for the Adult

The Shalem movement is dedicated to community volunteering. The movement was founded by The Ministry of Education and is operated under the auspices of "Ha'Hevra Lematnasim" (countrywide community centers) since 2000.

The visionary leader of Shalem – Dr. Shalom Klein believes that the movement's mission is to implement the human capital of the Israeli society and to promote the value of volunteering as a way of life.

The Shalem movement is a blessed byproduct of the transformations characterizing the Israeli society during the past decades, namely: the extension of life expectancy and the decrease in the average age of retirement. These two facts create a valuable human and economic resource, rich in knowledge and professional experience.

Shalem reaches potential volunteers during their preparatory courses towards retiring. It offers the retirees a "smooth landing" by joining a volunteering framework near home.

Our movement believes that volunteering enables people to feel meaningful and affiliated. Moreover, it highlights values of generosity, solidarity, responsibility, mutual assistance and social leadership.

Shalem operates within the framework of Ha'Hevra Lematnasim in 100 communities comprising 16,000 volunteers.

Its members invest 5,600,000 volunteering hours per year, worth yearly

 NIS 145,600,000.
