Program Description

Hevruta, a collaboration of the Shalom Hartman Institute and Hebrew College, is a fully integrated gap-year program for North American and Israeli student leaders from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds and life experiences.
 This exciting and dynamic learning opportunity will address both Israeli and North American cultures and contexts as compelling centers of contemporary Jewish leadership and discovery.


Over the course of their 10-month experience, Hevruta participants will engage in rigorous inquiry and text study, while taking advantage of Jerusalem’s rich intellectual and spiritual resources. A three-week North American component will explore American Jewish identity in a global context, deepening the exchange of ideas among students.
 


After completing the program, Hevruta alumni will be well-positioned to use their influential voices to shape the Jewish people’s most important conversations and communal decisions.

Our Mission

Highlights

Goals


Develop Jewish Peoplehood – Formalize the link between Israel's Jews and Diaspora Jews through their common historical and cultural heritage while inspiring desire for mutual action and commitment to the future.


• Leadership Development – Grow leadership abilities through self-leadership and the will to lead and serve as a personal example. The students will self-manage themselves and the program by running committees and working on individual and group projects (with the help and guidance of our staff).


• Improve Public Diplomacy – Train advocates to speak out for Israel. Public diplomacy will stem from a deep knowledge and faith in the importance of the Zionist vision. Students will acquire the tools and the skills to disseminate this knowledge.


• Solidifying Jewish Zionist identity – Develop a personal identity rooted in the philosophies of some of the greatest Israeli and world leaders. With a broad education and focused study, the students will become leaders with vision and purpose, possessing the resolve and ability to effect real change within themselves and society at large.


• Love of the Land – Understand Israel geographically and socially by becoming familiar with all sectors of the population engendering the understanding that the pioneer spirit is still very much alive in contemporary Israel.


• Preparation for Next Step – Practice physical fitness and mental stability for those joining the IDF. For those returning home, identify the challenges within the different Jewish communities and preparing for returning home for meaningful involvement.

 

The weekly schedule is primarily filled with learning Zionism, Jewish history, philosophy, Hebrew, politics, and Israel advocacy.  Alongside this learning, we partake in many outdoor activities such as hiking, acquiring navigation skills, volunteering, getting to know communities around Israel and more. All activities are in English.
