Four Weeks in Israel
The program offers a 360-degree perspective on Israel, including meetings with Jewish settlers, Palestinians, and Arab Israelis to gain insights into the complexity of Israeli politics and society.
Along the way students build connections with their Israeli counterparts, fueling their attachment to the Jewish state, and resulting in both lifelong learning and friendships.
At the end of the four weeks, students return with more than just memories. They return more connected to their heritage and Jewish identity, with a deepened sense of empathy and Jewish Peoplehood. They return with a clearer sense of self and a meaningful relationship to Israel and the world.
In an effort to ensure the myIsrael program is financially accessible to every student, the cost of the program is highly subsidized.
myIsrael was co-created by Gann, Israeli educational experts and staff from Ramah Israel.
CJP’s Boston-Haifa Partnership, which has been a leader in fostering connections between young Jews in the Boston area and Israel, has been an important partner in making this program a reality.
