Is a unique two year program that educates a dedicated group of Jewish high school juniors from all denominations in the core issues of Israeli society and the geopolitical situation in Israel today. In addition, students learn, engage and work with a group of Israeli peers from Beit Shean/Emek HaMayanot, Cleveland’s partnership region. The first year culminates in a 10 day Israel exploratory mission, giving participants the opportunity to experience the realities of life in Israel. In the second year, students will be involved in initiating, organizing and galvanizing peer involvement in educational, political or cultural activities designed to build support for the state of Israel. Students will become expert advocates in order to educate others about Israel.
If you are a current high school junior with a strong interest in Israel, you can apply for this competitive program.
