Program Description

The program is designed to provide a serious, skill-based and student-centered curriculum in Gemara and other central texts. It is developed by serious educators and talmidei chachamim, with an eye towards helping our students become independently skillful bnei Torah. Our student-centered curriculum includes courses in the classic works of the Jewish tradition, in order to expose students to the foundational texts and ideas that form the basis of Torah and Judaism. Talmud (iyun and bekiyut), Halacha, Chumash with Rashi and Ramban, Nach, and Jewish philosophy are all integral parts of our curriculum.
 
Each course is designed to help students become independently skilled in the texts being studied. The Jewish philosophy curriculum deals primarily with the classic medieval Jewish philosophers, such as the Rambam, Ramban, R. Yehuda HaLevi, and R. Albo. After studying the great ideas and philosophical positions of these Rishonim, students are exposed to those same ideas as dealt with by modern thinkers, such as Rav Soloveitchik and Rav Kook.

It is an intensive 10 month experience that combines studying, mad fun, finding friends for life and beginning a process of defining your personal identity. Running since 1946, the Machon is a world-renowned Institute for the training of young leaders from the Diaspora and boasts a faculty containing some of the best teachers in there fields in Israel.  
 
Shnat consists of 3 components – Machon/Boneh, Kibbutz and Kaveret. The Machon offers an exciting and hands-on look into Israeli History and Current Society, Jewish Civilization, Hebrew, Leadership skills, Political Insights and lots more through lectures and courses. Boneh is an alternative option for those who prefer a more informal environment than the university style lectures of Machon, with greater focus on Habonim and the kvutzah (group), focusing on topics more specific to Habonim. Boneh is hosted on a kibbutz, where the participants live together and build a sense of group identity.
 
After Machon, participants spend several weeks on a Habonim kibbutz, working in different jobs with the kibbutzniks; from cooking, gardening and laundry to working in the kindergarten and the fields. Participants enjoy free weekends and spend time getting to know the young people on the kibbutz and other volunteers. Nine hours of hard labour every day allow the Shnatties to enjoy the fruits of this Socialist living. 
 
Kaveret combines practical communal living with community work in Israeli society. The Shnatties contribute invaluably to Israeli society whilst learning, compromising and fending for themselves (yes, that includes cooking; cleaning and shopping!). Kaveret gives participants an opportunity to explore the depths of Israel society while contributing to its betterment by volunteering with different organisations.
