Way More Israel

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Way%20More%20Israel.jpg

Program Description

Way More Israel is a unique 5-month program where you will have an authentic Israel experience as you develop your own unique skills and interests. You’ll spend the first month living in Jerusalem’s Old City, improving your Hebrew skills and getting to know places and people around you. You’ll discover the meaning and significance of heritage and history through tours, workshops, hands-on learning, group volunteer projects and cultural activities. For the second month, you’ll travel to a kibbutz where you will continue to learn Hebrew, and have a chance to really contribute to communal life. You’ll pick up some organic farming techniques and/or work in a kibbutz factory. You’ll then return to Jerusalem for the last three months where you’ll be working or volunteering in your chosen field. Jerusalem has some of the best opportunities to gain valuable experience working in companies (over 600 to choose from) or making a real difference at the many non-profit organizations. 
 
During trips around the country, interactive programs and activities, you’ll experience “way more” of Israel and Israelis. By visiting places that many tourists don’t go and interacting with Israeli peers and your Jerusalem neighbours, you’ll start to feel like a local. Classes and workshops about issues crucial to Israel and your Jewish heritage will sharpen your critical thinking skills and open up new educational vistas. Because Way More Israel is multifaceted, diverse and comprehensive, you’ll get to know Israel and you’ll get to know yourself.

Achvat Amim is renewing the conversation on Jewish Peoplehood and Zionism for the 21st century. Together, we build a dynamic learning community in which we explore and shape Jewish culture and identity as individuals and as part of a greater whole, engage with the challenging realities in Israel and the West Bank, and build on the rich history and traditions of which we are a living part.

 

Achvat Amim is a framework for meaningful volunteer work with leading Israeli human rights organizations, including Rabbis for Human Rights, which do grassroots work with Israelis and Palestinians in and around Jerusalem. Achvat Amim focuses on developing practical skills in community development and education through intensive volunteer projects and engaging with social change and human rights movements. The program combines learning programs, outdoor experiences, seminars, and trips around the country with working on real projects with leading human rights organizations.

Haifa University MA in Diplomacy

Program Description

The dynamics of the contemporary, complex, interconnected and highly-charged international environment presents new challenges for scholars, policy analysts and decision makers, both at the global level and in the context of the Middle East. Against this backdrop, the MA Program in Diplomacy Studies is intended to elucidate the role of diplomacy as a main vehicle and mechanism for systematically addressing multilateral issues, which can no longer be effectively dealt with exclusively from a narrow unilateral or bilateral vantage point.
 
The focus on the role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms is designed to provide students with new insights, concepts and analytical tools for fully understanding the enhanced functions of diplomacy in this new setting. The program in Diplomacy Studies is primarily intended for practitioners, who are employed in a variety of public and private international, transnational and multilateral organizations, future diplomats, and interested academics abroad and in Israel. At the completion of the program, students will receive an MA in Political Science, with a specialization in Diplomacy Studies.

Highlights

An important element of the program will be the simulated analysis of concrete diplomatic decision games and action games. In the course of this simulation, the students will experiment with a range of diplomatic (and strategic) concepts, techniques and scenarios in a controlled and structured effort to emulate real-time crisis situations, with emphasis on the mechanisms and tools for mitigating and defusing them.
