God is raising up individuals from the nations to take a season of their lives and stand on the wall in the place of worship and intercession, here in “the city of the Great King“.
Succat Hallel offers a dynamic 3-month short term “Stand Program” designed to give you the opportunity to live in Jerusalem while you serve at Succat Hallel.
Weekly teachings offer a wealth of spiritual understanding on biblical topics such as (but not limited to):
- The biblical place of Israel.
- The restoration of the Tabernacle of David.
- The Isaiah 19 Highway.
- The history of the Jewish people.
Some of the teachings include onsite “mobile prayer watches” to places such as the City of David, Nazareth, Jericho, Shiloh, Bethel, and more.
While serving on staff, interns participate with the full-time staff in a number of key ways. These include leading prayer watches and worship sets, helping worship teams and assisting in the general daily maintenance of the ministry.
This program allows the individual the ability to cry out for God’s desires and purposes in Israel while experiencing the day to day life of the nation He calls “The Apple of His Eye”.
Succat Hallel has 2 intakes each year:
March 15th - June 15th
September 15th - December 15th
Succat Hallel offers housing and accomodations for all accepted applicants at the best possible prices. Early application submission is advised.
Begin your application process. (You may need to set aside some time to fill out all the required forms)
The Stand program costs $2400 USD. This includes your housing, teachings and all Stand related trips. All program costs must be paid upon arrival. We recommend raising an additional $600-$1000 for daily life expenses over 3 months (food, cell phone minutes, bus passes etc..).
Succat Hallel offers shared housing for accepted applicants. You and the other interns will live together in community, sharing rooms and bunks.
We have intakes for our volunteer program 2 times a year: March 15th, and September 15th.
Three-month tourist visas are given free to US, EU, UK, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and Canadian citizens without prior application, when they enter Israel and show passports that are valid for at least 9 months before the time of arrival. If you live in another country please check the regulations for entry into Israel.
Yes. Each applicant must provide his or her own health insurance coverage. Neither Succat Hallel or the Stand program will be able to cover hospitalization and/or visits to the doctor. Ask your travel agent about travel insurance that will fully cover you while you are here. If you require prescription medication (or even non-prescription medication) we recommend you bring a sufficient supply with you to cover your stay.
Succat Hallel acknowledges our call to live worthy of the Lord. We understand that the imposition of external “rules of conduct” is not an ideal to motivate people to holiness. Our motivations for holiness are love for Jesus and people, not the pressure of imposed rules.
However, in the spirit of Galatians 3:21-23, we recognize the need for standards set in place until the character of Christ is formed in us as articulated in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7). We ask all interns to live counter to the prevailing immorality of our society by not participating in or condoning sexual activity outside of marriage and to refrain from, illegal drugs, tobacco and gambling.
Jerusalem is very hot and dry in the summer months – from May to September (however, because it will be cooler in the evenings, you will need a sweater). Still, it can get quite cold (and rainy) during the winter months – December to April. The temperature rarely drops below freezing in Jerusalem but winter clothing will be needed if you will be here in the winter.
