JTS students

In this program, rabbinical students, Jewish lay leaders, and other professionals from the Diaspora expand their understanding of Israel and gain vital tools to better lead their congregations and organizations back home. Offered often as a complementary experience to a year-long Israel program, the one to three month track provides participants with an opportunity to live in a pluralistic community, in the very diverse setting of the Lower Galilee, and to engage in dialogue and activities unique to this region.

In recent years, we’ve hosted rabbinical students from the Jewish Theological Seminary and from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.
