Medical Insurance: Each volunteer MUST have current medical insurance which is valid in Israel. Volunteers will not be accepted without proof of insurance. Please send a copy of your insurance card/certificate.

The Tel Rehov Expedition/Beth-Shean Valley Archaeological Project can refer volunteers to physicians or hospitals in case of an accident or illness. However, it must be understood that the cost of physician care and hospitalization will be borne by the volunteer only and not the Rehov Expedition/ Beth-Shean Valley Archaeological Project .

Please provide us by mail with a note from your physician confirming your ability to volunteer on the excavation. Your physician should be informed that working conditions entail strenuous physical work outdoors in a very hot summer climate. Please make sure that your physician confirms that you are capable of such work and that you don’t suffer from any physical or mental disease. Chronic conditions such as ulcers, diabetes, asthma, glaucoma, allergies, etc. are very problematic with the field conditions on the dig and those who suffer from these conditions are encouraged not to apply for this intensive field work.
