Phase I of the Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility, SARAF, has been installed and is currently being commissioned at Soreq NRC . According to the Phase I design, SARAF should yield 2 mA proton and deuteron beams at energies up to 4 and 5 MeV, respectively. The status of the main Phase I components is reported. We further present beam commissioning results, which include acceleration of a 1 mA CW proton beam up to 3 MeV. Further improvements in the facility in order to achieve the desired performance are discussed.
