Shimon the barber is bald; he is a man with no hair style. But he’s a good hair stylist – always there are women at his salon. He’s the real life Zohan, except he’s unpretentious and humble.

By Eric Feldman, Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies


Hey, I’ve certainly been keeping busy over the past few weeks but I’ll hone in on this most recent week since a lot has been going on recently.


This week was the Fall Tiyul (trip/hike) that my yeshiva took down south to the Negev, and it was great. We stayed over for two nights in a beautiful Bedoin tent place with awesome food and amazing star gazing opportunities right outside.

The Rabbinical School of Hebrew Union College requires a year of study in Israel in order to foster an intimate relationship with the land that bears our peoples’ name.
It is an interesting social experiment, a country run by Jews, built on Jewish values, with a people who are constantly in conflict.

Ma'ase Olam - Israel Service Fellows

Program Description

Israel Service Fellows is a joint 10-month service-learning program for college graduates and Israelis ages 21-30 where you will volunteer with at-risk youth in a variety of informal educational placements for 25-30 hours a week.
The program is operated by the Ma’ase organization, which specializes in volunteer and leadership programs for over 700 young people all over Israel in order to create a movement for social change. For more than a decade, Ma’ase has been running successful volunteer programs and is the recipient of several national awards in the field. The program is also funded by the Rashi Foundation, a leading organization that has been assisting the underprivileged in Israel for over 20 years.
Israel Service Fellows takes place in Akko, a beautiful coastal city in northern Israel and a UNESCO world heritage site. Akko is a mixed city of Arab, Druze and Jewish populations, which would give you the opportunity for meaningful and significant cross cultural learning and exploration.
Possible placements for volunteering include schools, youth centers, and community centers. There, you will be able to create various activities for youth, such as photography classes or music classes. You will also take part in professional training in order to develop your knowledge and skills to become an effective educator and agent for social change in your home community as well. The trainings include understanding the political environment, minorities in Israel, and the development of peripheral cities in Israeli society.


- Joint programing and service work with a group of Israelis your age
- Gain from the expertise of the Ma’ase organization and its professional approach to volunteering and service.
- Benefit from our service-learning model and leadership development component that trains you to become a change-maker in your home community.
Israel Service Fellows is a challenging program, suitable for those who wish to play an active role in shaping Israel's future generation while engaging with one’s own knowledge and understanding of complex social issues in Israel today. We welcome fellows who can bring their own strengths and talents to the program, while answering the genuine needs of the community.
Israel Service Fellows is highly subsidized by Masa Israel Journey and the Rashi Foundation, reducing the program fee to $1,000, which includes fully furnished accommodations, health insurance, and a monthly stipend of 1,300 NIS. You will also be reimbursed for your round-trip flight up to 5,000 NIS.
