Immersion in Israeli Culture

Immersion in Israeli culture

Israel is a business and cultural hub like no other in the world. Living abroad for the summer will expand your perspective on business and so much more when you go back home. Each US and International Fellow is paired one-on-one with an Israeli Peer Fellow to see Israel through a local lens — not a tourist’s view.

Expansive Learning Experience

Expansive learning experience

Three evenings each week, engage with professionals and changemakers across business, government, social impact, tech, and Jewish identity to learn, grow, and adapt in an ever-changing world. You will also explore Israel as a full group during three weekend trips.
