Program Breakdown

1. You will work with an internship coordinator prior to your arrival to secure an internship that is right for you.

2. The first few days are spent as a group in Jerusalem acclimating to Israel and getting to know one another with group touring, bonding activities and exciting seminars and programs.

3. You will then move to Tel Aviv with the entire group, staying in our apartments in the center of Tel Aviv enjoying group activities and trips, including 2-3 weeks of Hebrew classes 3-4 hours per day.

4. The remaining time on the program are focused on your  internship.  You will intern 25-30 hours each week at your internship in Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem, and you will still get to travel and see parts of Israel you have never experienced with trips that include overnight trips. The Hebrew Ulpan study program will be taking place in the respective location of each participant (Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem) once a week in the evening. In additional to your internship and Hebrew, you will have a chance to go on trips and tours that will take you all around the country and will expose you to subjects such as modern Israeli society, religion and the Jewish state, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Jewish identity in modern Israel, trends in the Israeli job market and more. You can find a sample itinerary here.
