About Ruach Tova

About Us

Ruach Tova (“Good Spirit” in Hebrew) is the leading organization in the field of volunteering in Israel, specializing in matching volunteers with organizations.

Our Background

In 2008, Ruach Tova joined the Arison Group, a global business and philanthropic conglomerate, and is supported by the Ted Arison Family Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1993 by Ted Arison and his daughter, Shari Arison, with activities based on three values: kindness, generosity, and repairing the world, to inspire significant change, encourage excellence, social responsibility and create a better society.

Our Vision

We believe everyone has the power to do good, which is why we specialize in connecting individuals and groups to causes and organizations they’re passionate about, in order to help them to make a difference in the world.

What We Do

At Ruach Tova, we connect people who are interested in volunteering in Israel to non-profit organizations across the country who offer volunteering opportunities. Placements are according to the volunteer’s preferences and the organization’s requirements and needs. Ruach Tova is the intermediate between you, the volunteer, and the organization. 

Whether you’re in Israel studying, touring, on a family trip, staying for a year or just a few weeks – We’re happy to help arrange your next volunteering opportunity in Israel. Tell us a bit about yourself and volunteering interests in our registration form and a representative will be in touch soon.

Good Deeds Day

Our largest project is Good Deeds Day, an annual tradition of good deeds. All over the world, hundreds of thousands choose to volunteer and help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and positively change the world. 108 countries worldwide have taken part in Good Deeds Day.
