Do I need a cell phone? Where can I order one?

A cell phone is not necessary for the week but many participants like to have one. One option is to bring your own and make arrangements ahead of time with your local carrier to be able to use it in Israel. Wi-fi access will be limited so service can be very expensive if you are using 3G or 4G service. If you need a sim card or to rent a cell phone we suggest making arrangements with Israelphones before you leave. A representative from Israelphones will meet our group at Ben Gurion airport to deliver all sim cards and cell phone rentals that have been pre-ordered.
