SHERUT LEUMI RESEARCH AND SIGN-UP GUIDE
We’re here to guide you through the often complicated and confusing process and to help you reach the best decision for yourself! Sherut Leumi has the ability to be the most meaningful, uplifting and life-changing experience, but will also invariably come with many challenges and frustrations. That’s why it is so important to prepare and research as much as possible before you sign up.
HOW DO I RESEARCH SHERUT PLACES?
Take a look at our Sherut Leumi Experience Guide, a collection of first-hand experiences of bnot sherut bodedot. It includes descriptions of various places, personal experiences and advice. Feel free to reach out the girls who included their contact information - they have so much to say and would love to hear from you!
We know it's overwhelming, but as of now the only way to see the complete list of Sherut Leumi options for Bat Ami, Haagudah Lehitnadvut and Aminadav is by looking through the list on their individual websites in Hebrew.
Reach out to Here Next Year for one-on-one guidance! A Here Next Year Rakezet will accompany you throughout the entire process, answer any questions you may have and help you decide which Sherut Leumi placement will be the best fit for you. We can't wait to hear from you and get the process started!

SIGNING UP FOR SHERUT LEUMI
Alright! You've decided you are interested in Sherut Leumi for next year. What do you do now? Before you begin the sign-up process, here are two things to keep in mind:
1. It’s important to remember that nothing is set in stone. Until you officially tell a place you will be serving there next year, you can always back out!
2. When the application process begins you do not need to know exactly where you want to serve. After all, how could you? You haven’t even seen any of the places first hand! All you need to know for now is a general direction. Think about which field you are interested in or which type of population you would like to work with. Once the sayarot (interview) process begins, you can go check out a few different places and see which one seems fitting for you. You don’t need to make any commitments until much later in the game.
At this point, the sign-up process differs based on which placement organization you choose. With all the organizations, you will need to go to interviews, called sayarot, at the places where you may be interested in serving. For more information about sayarot, click here.
We will explain the process for each organization, when the general deadlines are and who to contact throughout your process. You can sign up for interviews through multiple organizations. You aren’t limited to one! Check out the different organizations by clicking on the buttons below:
