You will spend your mornings and evenings learning about – and engaging – your Jewish tradition. Through stimulating classes with expert educators, you will gain a better understanding of yourselves and your Judaism. You will explore your Jewish roots, connect to your people’s history, and enter the “yam shel Torah” (“sea of Torah study”) in a fresh and profound way.
These classes, combined with the “avira d’eretz Yisrael” and the unique spiritual atmosphere of Bet Elazraki will encourage you to grow spiritually – and will arm you with the skills towards a life of continued Torah learning and Avodat Hashem.
Every afternoon will be dedicated to the children at the Bet Elazraki children’s home. You will become their counselors, mentors, and friends. You will develop a deep connection with these special children, become an integral part of their lives, and experience the amazing feeling of helping another.
You will learn the power of giving- and that giving is really receiving.
You will experience the land like never before. Through fun and exciting tiyulim, you will connect to the land of your forefathers in a deep and meaningful way. These tiyulim will help your learning come alive, and foster a deep appreciation of our nation’s past, present, and future. Through numerous shabbatonim in communities across the country, you will be introduced to Jews of all stripes and types, and gain a keen understanding of the beautiful tapestry of Israeli society.
In addition, your bond to Eretz Yisrael will be enhanced through working hand in hand with 50 dedicated bnot sheirut- Israeli girls your age spending their year in national service. These daily encounters will provide you with a unique window into Israeli society and culture.
Our Torah learning, combined with the “avira d’eretz Yisrael” and the unique atmosphere of Bet Elazraki will encourage you to grow – and will arm you with the skills towards a life of continued Torah learning, giving and Avodat Hashem.
