Voluntariado en the Jewish tradition

Israelis are known as one of the most active volunteers en the world. Today, 32% of Israelis (adults) participate en volunteering en one or another way. Some claim that volunteerism is very much a part of the Israeli ethic. Zionism, the movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland, created voluntary agencies serving different purposes while still being under the British rule.
The Jewish charity tradition (Tzdaka) encourages people to help each other en times of difficulty. Jewish schools (such as Cheder, Talmud Tora and Yeshiva), burial societies, bath facilities and many others were voluntary institutions. Voluntary self-government is something very characteristic for the Jewish communities worldwide. The Kibutz and Moshav are based on voluntarism.
Many voluntary organizations were founded over the years, which constitute a large part of Israel's life today, for example Magen David Adom (Red Star of David similar to the Red Cross), organizations for first aid, for the mentally handicapped, for children, for helping large families and women. Several programs offer volunteers from abroad a unique chance to serve en Israel, usually on a short term basis. Some prefer work on kibbutzim while others help en social services, archeological excavations and many other fields one can think of.
