Masa Israel Teaching Fellows Religious Track:

What is the MITF Religious Track?

The MITF religious track will be a 10-month track in Jerusalem designated for observant/orthodox participants that want to teach English in religious schools to children while spending some time each week learning Torah in a Yeshiva or Seminary. The track will provide accommodations that are strictly Kosher, Shomer Shabbat and male or female only housing. Fellows on this track will be a part of the classic Jerusalem cohort. Participants will engage in programming specific to the track and also be a part of the wider MITF community and programming. This track is recommended for applicants that identify as Orthodox, Modern-Orthodox or Charedy.
