Over the course of the program students will explore the periods between the mid-second millennium BCE through the Muslim conquest in the seventh century CE. This will be done through the study of archaeological finds, biblical text and Ancient Near Eastern texts that illuminate the economic and social structures, diplomatic and political relations and religious practices of the inhabitants of ancient Israel, as well as tours of archaeological sites.
 
Throughout the third semester students will gain fieldwork experience in some of the most exciting excavations conducted in Israel by TAU scholars, in a four to six weeks excavation program. The International program in Archaeology and History of the Land of the Bible can be taken as a one year MA program (without thesis), as a two year MA program (with thesis), or as a one year credited course program towards a PhD

Highlights

Green Tourism in Arad

Israel as a whole is a developed country with a thriving economy. Like many countries, it has regions that are economically and culturally vulnerable, like the Negev. However, the Negev has tremendous potential for growth in the areas of ecological tourism. This beautiful region, boasts the Dead Sea and Arava Valley to the east, the Mediterranean to the West, Eilat to the South, and the scenic Ramon Crater in the center.

 

Still, the Negev is the most sparsely populated region of Israel. Its distance from the country’s cultural and economic centers of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, along with the geographic isolation of many of its small towns and villages, make economic development a true challenge.

 

Volunteer activities in Arad focus on three main areas: Co-existence between the Jewish and Bedouin communities, ecological tourism, and strengthening communities of the elderly, children at risk, and new immigrants.

 

Israel Corp, a project of Masa Tlalim and Project TEN, is a service-learning program. Participants develop their own passions, interests, and professional skills while they contribute to the development of the city of Arad. Participants work for up to nine hours each day on projects with local organizations. Interactive and educational seminars take place three to four times each week. Seminars cover a variety of topics, including Jewish values, social justice, and entrepreneurship. The seminars serve as a platform for developing a strong sense of community among program participants.

 

Sustainability, Education, and Co-Existence on Kibbutz Harduf

The Harduf center will acquaint you with Arab communities and Jewish-Arab relationships in the Galilee, and to explore your relationship with Jewish values by collaborating with Arabs, promoting co-existence, and bridging conflict-causing cultural and economic gaps.

 

Being a participant at Masa Tlalim –Project TEN Harduf is a truly hands-on  volunteer experience. You will volunteer with at-risk youth, adults with special needs, and children from the neighboring Arab villages. You will also volunteer in organic farming and sustainable ecological building.

 

The focal point of the volunteer activities is Sha’ar La’Adam (“Gate for Humanity”), a community center on the forest grounds of Kibbutz Harduf. Founded in 2002, Sha’ar La’adam organizes educational, artistic, and ecological activities for Jews and Arabs together, drawing on relationships with the nearby Jewish and Arab villages of Ka’abiya, Swa’ed, Shefar’am, and Tivon.

 

Travel

In addition to making a contribution to your host community, exploring Israel is a core component of Israel Corps – Project TEN.

The program includes a series of educational tours in participants’ home region and beyond. These enrichment experiences are scheduled throughout the program and are designed to expose Israel Corps participants to contemporary Israeli society, the intricacies of Jewish history, and the stunning beauty of Israel’s ecology on a deeper level than a typical tour. Israel Pathways’ own professional guides lead these excursions and all of the travel expenses are included.

In addition to day trips, the program covers weekend-long trips to many other parts of the country. During these longer trips, participants stay at hotels and guesthouses while taking part in seminars and programs with others Israel Pathways groups.

Discovering Internships in the "Start-Up Nation"

Discovering Internships in the "Start-Up Nation"

May 26, 2011

Launched in 2006, AllMyFaves.com, a Tel Aviv-based startup that seeks to simplify Internet navigation, only recently began accepting Masa Israel interns, and co-founder Shachar Pessis regrets waiting so long.
“It’s very inspiring to work with non-Israelis because they provide different global perspectives,” says Pessis. “Also, interns are especially valuable for startups because they offer the startup the opportunity of increasing their work force at no additional cost.”
 
This past year, All My Faves accepted two interns—recent college graduates from India and Argentina—who have helped the company break into international markets by providing their local insights.  Though the startup did not initially plan on pursuing an Argentinean following, the Argentinean intern made this a possibility.
 
Aside from the benefits that All My Faves has reaped from the interns, Pessis believes that internships at Israeli startups provide the best professional experience for recent college graduates.  “At startups, interns can experience what it means to create something from nothing—and all the challenges and accomplishments that go along with that,” says Pessis. “This definitely beats having a very small role in a large and established company.”
 
Next year, Pessis is looking forward to accepting another two interns, who he will train and then empower to leave their mark in Israel.  “They help us make better business decisions and it’s inspiring for us to help Jewish young adults get significant career experience here in the ‘start-up nation,’” says Pessis.
