Hebrew Union College requires students to spend the first year of their studies in Israel for the establishment of lifelong ties vital to sustaining the living bonds between the North American and Israeli communities. The Year-in-Israel program imbues rabbinical, cantorial and Jewish education students with a spirit of partnership that they take home with them to complete their studies in North America and Europe, and fosters a shared sense of responsibility that transcends geography to assert the overarching unity of the Jewish people. The curriculum encompasses Hebrew language immersion, foundational textual skills, Israel studies, community building, and both spiritual and professional development. Utilizing Israel itself as a classroom, the students explore Israeli culture, the history of Zionism and the social and political challenges in Israel, and participate in community service projects.

About Jerusalem

The city where past and present meet. Established over 3,000 years ago, the city of Jerusalem offers you the chance to literally reach out and touch the past. Known as the city of gold, Jerusalem is a magical mix of ancient and modern, where outdoor shuks (markets) rub shoulders with gleaming office towers. The city's most popular spots include a vibrant downtown with world-class restaurants and shopping, and the Old City, a maze of winding alleyways and colorful markets enclosed by walls dating back to the 16th century.
