Program Description

Israel's longest running gap year, Habonim Dror’s Workshop focuses on collective education and dialogue meant to develop your Jewish leadership. As a participant in Workshop, you will actively contribute to the building of peace and social justice in Israel through community volunteerism. You will live collectively in kvutzot (small groups) and travel the country while learning about the diverse history of Israel, the Israeli people, and the Hebrew language.
 
During the first half of the year, you will focus on learning important life skills; you will spend the second half using them in a variety of volunteer placements with Israeli youth. In addition, Workshop offers you the opportunity to visit important historical sites in Poland, witnessing the Holocaust and learning about the role of youth movements in its history.

Masa Alumni Tikkun Olam Committee Brings Family History to Life

January 26, 2012

Earlier this year, 15 Masa alumni took part in 3GNY‘s We Educate, a three-part course to  train them to teach their grandparents’ Holocaust experiences in NYC public schools.
After three sessions, the alumni created an event to showcase their work to the Jewish community and spread awareness of the program.
 
On January 25, 40 individuals, Masa alumni and other community members, gathered in Hummus Place in the East Village to hear their peers’ family histories over hummus and pita. Masa alumna Yael Friedman shared her grandparents’ tale of survival, which she only learned because the course gave her the impetus to ask.  Following her experience interning at Yad Vashem through Masa Israel’s Career Israel, Yael registered for the course. 
 
“Masa alumni return from Israel with the passion to make a difference in their communities,” said Rachel Sales, Masa Israel’s Director of Alumni.  ”We Educate provided alumni with tools and training to make a tangible impact.”
