Abundant Hope International understands the value of volunteers and recognizes the great gifts they bring to the work we do in Israel. We offer lodging for our volunteers located in the northern part of Israel, a place called Beit Shalom.
Set in the outer neighborhood of the ancient, 5,000 year-old City of Akko (Acre), which is located on the Mediterranean Sea, Beit Shalom is central to many of the northern Biblical sights and lovely places to tour and visit. Beit Shalom can accommodate up to ten volunteers and guests with its three bedrooms and three full baths. Dormitory style bedrooms allow for a full house. AHI will always do our best to provide private rooms for volunteers, but sharing of quarters should be expected. A fully equipped kitchen is available for the convenience of our volunteers and guests. All linens are provided. Beit Shalom also serves as the headquarters for AHI in Israel. Our offices are in the suite above the volunteer lodging.
Free secure wireless is available at Beit Shalom along with outdoor dining areas, a pergola and pleasant outdoor seating in an enclosed yard. Beit Shalom, though the base of operations for AHI, offers a peaceful and quiet respite after a time of serving Holocaust Survivors; a place to refresh and restore oneself.
Beit Shalom, Ha Ela 2, Akko. Public transportation is available throughout Akko: taxis average 18-20nis anywhere within Akko, buses less than 10nis/day and the train comes directly to Akko from Ben Gurion International Airport.
Overnight accommodations are available for both volunteers and guests providing clean, comfortable lodging at reasonable prices.* Volunteers will automatically be booked into a room upon notification of acceptance unless the Volunteer will be making other arrangements. If a volunteer is planning to stay at Beit Shalom for touring, after completing their time of service, the cost of their room will change from the status of “volunteer” to that of “guest” with the accompanying increase in rate.
