The program has three main components:
Machon LeMadrichim – The participants live and study for the duration of the program at the facility “Machon Lehachshara LeMadrichim Chul” in Kiryat Moriah, Jerusalem. In this institutue, the participants study five-days a week in required coursework, as well as class electives and practical seminars. Every class objective is to provide the program to each student to bring back to their community.
Volunteering – The participants live in the absorption centers of the Jewish Agency and work as volunteers in the educational fields of the centers, and in the conservation of the physical space. The students receive a group budget to administrate their food, transportation and personal interests costs. Also they are responsible for the development of the socio-educational projects within the absorption center and this pushes them to think about how they will reapply the same projects in their community. The success of the projects in the absorption center will only increase the success when they return to their homes.
Kibbutz Life – In the belief of the meaningful communal experience, Kibbutzism, as demonstrated in many aspects of Israeli society, the students will be volunteering in Kibbutzim additionally to their obligations at the absorption centers. They will work in different areas of the kibbutz. We will provide opportunities for the participants to work in fields of interest, while still satisfying the needs of the daily kibbutz needs.
During the year, the participants will receive activities and presentation of a Masorti Lifestyle, via their madrichim. Each month there will be seminars and trips to increase and strengthen the annual educational process of learning about Zionism, Israel society and Masorti Judaism.
The program cost includes: covered medical insurance, food and all living accomodations.
