In Israel, you can take a bus in any direction and in an hour find yourself in a completely different environment, physically and spiritually. You could go from the Orthodox neighborhoods of Jerusalem to seeing completely unorthodox outfits on the streets of Tel Aviv.
However, Year Coursers know there is more to Israel than just parties and prayers. Just veer left or right from the center of this country, and you’ll find a different Israel.
Believe it or not, the average Year Courser’s week is a busy one. Come Friday morning, we all are covered in our bed sheets, until an alarm or a friend ruins everything. We get up, throw an overnight bag together along with some snacks and run to catch the next bus out of town.
