BINA offers high school graduates a unique opportunity to experience real life with Israeli young adults in Tel Aviv, Israel's most exciting city. Program participants will engage in meaningful social action in the community in which they live, and explore the Jewish bookshelf from a pluralistic and progressive perspective. For the past decade, BINA: Center for Jewish Identity and Hebrew Culture has offered hundreds of young adults from Israel and around the world opportunities to experience significant learning, encounter a wide range of thinking and thinkers, and devote themselves to social change.

You will engage in meaningful volunteer assignments in your community in south Tel Aviv. Highly experienced counselors and mentors at BINA, with their personal commitment to social justice, will provide close supervision and guidance in each of your volunteer assignments. You will study classical Jewish texts, Jewish philosophy, social justice and Israeli studies, taught by Israel's leading scholars and educators. You will study, volunteer and live side-by-side with Israeli peers, celebrating Shabbat services and holidays together.
