Program Description

Bnei Akiva inspires and empowers young Jews with a sense of commitment to the Jewish people, the Land of Israel and the Torah.

 

For more than 80 years, Hachshara, a year trip to Israel, has played a part in shaping and training the future leaders of Bnei Akiva and Jewish communities around the world.

 

Hachshara is a vital component in your Bnei Akiva journey, when you can devote time to learning Jewish texts, develop independently and explore your identity.
Shalhevet is an international World Bnei Akiva program, where you will meet friends from Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, Canada, USA and more.

 

Shalhevet is an uplifting, inspiring and empowering year in Israel with Bnei Akiva.

 

You’ll learn new skills, enhance old ones, develop your Jewish identity and adapt to new environments – all while enjoying the group experience.

 

Shalhevet is all about learning and giving. It’s a year for yourself, but also a chance to contribute to society around you.
 

Highlights

Shalhevet is a ten-month program encompassing a variety of experiences: studying Torah, volunteering on a kibbutz, a Hebrew Ulpan, Marva, Magen David Adom, leadership program, and much more. Shalhevet is not based in just one location—round every two months, the group moves to another part of Israel.

Yeshivat Orayta

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Orayta-photo.jpg

Program Description

Orayta, located in the Old City of Jerusalem overlooking the Kotel, is housed in a magnificent 900 year-old Crusader building with an incredible view of the Temple Mount (Har Habayit), the Mount of Olives (Har Hazeitim) and the Judean Desert. At Orayta students will develop leadership skills and become philosophically equipped to cope with the challenges of living a Torah life in a modern secular world.
 
Students will be introduced to a wide range of Jewish thinkers including the teachings of Rav Abraham Isaac Kook, Rabbi J.B. Soloveitchik and the Chassidic Masters. At Orayta students will understand why they learn Gemara and the vital role it plays in their personal development. The year will not simply focus on one or two tractates; rather, students will probe sections selected from the entire Talmud that are relevant to their life and typify the gamut of archetypical modalities of Talmudic logic.
