Researching Sherut Positions

Where to start? When looking into Sherut it can be extremely overwhelming since Sherut Leumi has hundreds of options all over the country! This can make it very challenging to choose only a few placements to interview at. It is important to be able to narrow down your options. This is how we advise you go about the process.

For one on one guidance for this contact us to get a personal Sherut Leumi Mellavah! 

Decide what type of Sherut you are most interested in- for a full list of the different categories click here.


Make a list of what you are looking to get out of your year, and prioritize it. This can include things from improving my Hebrew, to being comfortable in my apartment, to being accessible by public transportation - the goal is that its a list of needs to help you clarify what the most important aspects to look for when narrowing down your options. 

Go through our translated Sherut jobs (scroll down), and look on the Amutot websites for jobs in the categories you are interested in and find someone you can speak to about a similar experience from our Blue and White Pages.

Once you feel like you know what you want, make a list with a maximum of 5 places to interview at. (It does not matter if they are from the same Amutot or not)​
