Onward Israel – Georgia

Hillels of Georgia is excited to be partnering with Onward for the first time to offer students – both native to Metro Atlanta or attendees at Georgia Colleges – a Summer Internship Program in Israel. This 8-week Metro Tel Aviv based internship program places you in an authentic Israeli workplace based on your skills, interests and future plans. This program allows you to develop your professional future and build your resume at the same time through a high-level internship.

You will work as an intern four days a week, and immerse yourself in Israeli society the rest of the time along with a cohort of other young adults from Georgia. During your free time, you will explore Israel’s exciting history, its beautiful beaches and experience first-hand Israel’s unique culture. Also, you will enjoy a weekend retreat in Atlanta’s sister city Yokne’am, as well as one weekend with Jewish peers from across the globe.
