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.

Machon Bina

Program Description

The Machon Bina program is designed around the students – providing an environment where each can further develop her unique self and strengthen her identity and commitment to a life guided by Torah and Chasidus. It is the details and the nuances of the Machon Bina program that fosters this growth - classroom learning (discussions, text based, small group learning and other modalities of adult learning) and hands-on/ minds-on projects. Through this blend of learning and projects, the girls will gain deep and meaningful insights into life as Chabad women and hone their strengths and learn new skills for living a full and purposeful life. The Machon Bina program will help them develop the mindsets and tools for life – as a woman, wife, mother, and Shlucha, or wherever life takes them.

JTS Rabbinal School

Program Description

A new format for our rabbinical and cantorial students in Israel will use a trimester system to provide three discrete types of study:
 
1) Land and Language Immersion Lab in Merkaz Tzippori, Jerusalem Forest.
 
2) Beit Midrash learning in the Schocken Institute, our campus in central Jerusalem.
 
3) University study for our rabbinical students.
 
Cantorial students will choose between participating in our Kesher Hadash program for Israel education and joining the rabbinical students for Judaica classes at the Schechter Institute. All of our students will participate in a year long experiential program and be assigned to an internship with a Masorti congregation. The first stage will include an intensive Hebrew ulpan (with an optional JTS Jumpstart Israel summer component). Evening Hebrew language courses will continue into the second trimester; the third trimester will involve Hebrew as language of learning and instruction. In this way the students will be immersed in Hebrew culture and Israeli community for the entire year,and will also experience three discrete models of learning to ensure a rich and fulfilling experience in Israel.
