It should work for both voice and data. See here:
SPRINT PCS -
Hopefully that extremely long link will correctly resolve.
You will need the Sprint international data plan, which I believe is $70/month, but is only necessary for the months that you are abroad.
I just use the built-in SIM for voice because I want to have people be able to reach me. If you want to minimize the expense of calling people and/or have a local line, get a SIM to put in while you are in Israel.
