Mitzpeh Bagalil

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/mitzpehbagalil%20photo.jpg

Program Description

Mitzpeh BaGalil is a ten-month, intensive enrichment program designed for high school graduates from North America and Europe, but open to applicants from around the world.

A typical week in the Mitzpeh BaGalil program includes:  Formal study of the Hebrew language, Israeli history, and Torah (in a modern context); group discussion; social activism; exploration and touring; and informal social interactions with the Hannaton Mechina participants and Hannaton kibbutz member families.

Why choose to spend your gap year at Hannaton?
Our Israeli-style gap year program is a pluralistic experience, open to Jews of all denominations and political leanings

Our program structure has an Israeli flavor to it. How?
Through community building, social action, and a significant amount of self-governance while they’re here, participants actively determine the outcome of their experience.

Asked why they chose Hannaton, most current participants say one of two things: First, they wanted to be in close contact and dialogue with Israelis their own age. Parallel to the gap year program, Hannaton runs a pre-army Mechina. The two programs take place on the same campus; meals are often together, as well as some activities and trips. 
Second, Hannaton’s location and experiential programming offer a unique opportunity to interact with a wide spectrum of residents of the region; not just Jews, but local Bedouins, Druze and Muslims, often inside their homes or institutions Through one-on-one exchanges, program participants become intimately familiar with Israel. Graduates return home with a strong network of Israeli friends, their own opinions about the region, the skills to cogently express them to others.
