We are a multilingual vegan/vegetarian family, always in need of a helping hand. We have two kids, a dog, a cat and lots to do! One of us is working on her master thesis in social psychology, and interning as an educational psychologist. The other is studying for the Israeli bar exams and interning at the public deference office in Haifa. In Corona days, we sometimes even have two kids at home all the time litterly climbing on the walls...
We love guests and even love it more when they are super helpful and are willing to support the crazy life we live. We speak English and Hebrew at home, but we live in an Arabic speaking village. Our almost 5 year old daughter is fluent in all three languages. Our lifestyle is all a part of our wish to raise tolerant, open minded children that are accepting of human difference - so come help us expose our children to as many people, languages, cultures as possible (and help out while you are at it :-) )

We live in an extremely unique place. It's an old arab-druz village where all different religions live together in peace.
It's a pretty "touristy" place for both Israeli travelers and certainly for foreign tourists, and Yet, actually staying here for a while will allow you to experience Israel in a way not many (including Israelis) ever do.
In addition to the culture here, the main attraction is the nature. The village is on mount Carmel which has beautiful scenery and endless hiking trails (take a look at our photos, they are all taken just a few minutes away from our house).
Plus, It is right near a big city (Haifa), and not far from the sea, so it really is the best of all worlds and there really is a lot to do.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, that is true, especially when you are raising two of them while you are both students, working all kinds of hours and on a pretty tight budget. Our biggest projects right now are bunch of DIY renovations. We just moved into a big house which is jn desprate need of a coat of paint here and there, some referbushing, planting in garden and such. Also, We definitely need help in the house keepin department (it is usually the first ball to be dropped), plus just hanging out with the kids, having fun and expanding their life and knowledge is always a great contribution.
The help around here varies depending on what is going on and what you are interested, comfortable and are good at. You have to be proactive in a way, see what you want to do, and do it.
We try to be as flexible as possible, so any skills you have that can enrich and support our lives is very welcome.
This host offers a language exchange
Would love to teach hebrew broaden our english and learn arabic.
We have a simple guest bedroom with double bed, with an exit to a balconey and a great view.
Food is included for the most part, although we barely have time to make proper meals, so you have to be able to fend for your self in a way. Plus, we live a very simple life style, so you might find your self going out for a burger every now and then (especially if you are a meat eater) or wanting to pop to the shop around the corner to get some candy to hide under your bed :-)
We try to be as considerate and flexible as possible so you really can enjoy your time in Israel. For the most part, you are free to set your own hours and schedule, and come and go as you please as long as you are sure to make the time to put in the hours and contribute.
This requires a certain kind of person. Someone who is proactive and responsible, someone who is comfortable with taking initiative and is o.k with not necessarily having a clear schedule or a set lists of task to follow. If you are that person - welcome!
