Phase I of the Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility SARAF is under operation at the Soreq Nuclear Research Center. The status of Phase I main components is reported as well as the beam operation experience accumulated in the recent months. The latter include acceleration of a 1 mA CW protons beam up to 3.9 MeV and 1 mA pulsed, duty cycle of few %, deuterons beam up to 4.7 MeV. Recent and future improvements in the current facility are discussed.
