The Alisa Flatow Program prides itself on its diverse student body, exceptional and devoted scholars and Rabbis, and the opportunity to study Torah in the larger context of a bustling Beit Midrash with a variety of learners.

Courses such as Tanach (Bible), Halacha (Jewish Law), Talmud, Ethics and Jewish Philosophy, place emphasis on learning with a partner; students are encouraged to explore difficult questions and to hone their text skills.

Our warm and supportive faculty is available in and out of the classroom, taking time to help students in their personal development and spiritual growth. Faculty members and Nishmat alumnae across Israel open their homes to students for Shabbat and Chagim.

At the same time, they are part of the larger Israeli Nishmat community, sharing Shabbatonim and holidays together in their home away from home.

Israel Government Fellows

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/IGF%20Photo.png

Program Description

Israel Government Fellows is a Menachem Begin Heritage Center initiative in affiliation with Masa Israel. The program is endorsed by the Office of the Prime Minister and offers outstanding and highly motivated young Jewish leaders an experience at the heart of the Israeli government. Alongside internships in government offices or policy and diplomacy organizations, the program provides educational seminars, Hebrew language instruction and tours around the country. It is the only existing program of its kind for non-Israelis and is available for young Jews aged 22-30 with at least a first degree. The program’s duration is ten months and is based in Jerusalem. As well as working closely with government officials, prominent thinkers or social activists, participants will attend weekly seminars and travel throughout the country. They will meet with Israeli officials, policy makers, journalists, and a wide range of public figures; as well as exploring their own connection to Israel, Zionism and the Jewish people. The program provides Fellows with invaluable work experience and leadership development.

It is a unique opportunity for aspiring Jewish leaders to develop their talents while contributing to Israeli politics and society, learning about Israeli history and culture, and strengthening their connection with the Jewish state.

 

The cost of the program is $11,000 but every participant is eligible for an automatic grant from the Begin Center of $2,000.
Fellows will have the opportunity to arrange their own accommodation in Jerusalem – or in Tel Aviv for the few cases of Fellows interning there.
Alternatively, we can reserve a room for them at the Student Village of the Hebrew University in the French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem. They can either:
Stay there for just two months (Sep-Oct), while they look for an apartment here. 
OR
Remain at the Student Village for the full ten months of the program. 
The estimated cost of renting a room at the Student Village will be 2,400 NIS a month (approx. $600).
