Orientation period – During the first several weeks of the program, you'll study Hebrew intensively, take some preliminary classes, and have a chance to check out your internship location (or look at a few, if you have not already chosen one).  Some participants will need to have an interview at their internship location during this time.

 

Hebrew study – Multiple Hebrew levels will be provided.  Hebrew study is intensive during the first several weeks of the program, then once per week for the remainder of the program.

 

Weekends – Most weekends are free, but a few times throughout the semester we will take an overnight trip somewhere around Israel.  Most trips involve camping and hiking that is designed to be accessible for all participants.
