Year Course is a professionally run, exciting and challenging full-time programme, which is designed to give chanichim an in-depth understanding of the complexities that make up modern Israel and encourage chanichim to discover our Jewish homeland.
The nine month programme is made up of three semesters, each lasting three-months, time spent living in Jerusalem, the Negev, and Bat Yam. Everyone will participate in an informal study period, volunteer throughout Israel, and have an opportunity to experience a new and different aspect of Israeli society. Additional options include Marva/Sar-El (the IDF army experience), living on Kibbutz and hiking the Shvil Yisrael track and volunteering with Magen David Adom. There is also the option to travel to Poland on our Kuma trip, and to take part in any one of our speciality tracks to tailor your year to your specific interests, such as Leadership, Shevet, Arts, Sports, Culinary, etc.
All of the Year Course participants will be with North American chanichim from Young Judaea Year Course
, and members of the Israeli Scouts (Tzofim), as well as FZY chanichim
from all over Britain and Europe. Year Course is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should not be missed.
