Information regarding COVID-19
For the safety of all our participants, staff, and the community at large, all participants and staff of the program must be fully vaccinated. While on the program, students who become eligible for a booster as determined by the Israeli Ministry of Health will be required to receive it. Additionally, arrival protocols set by the Israeli Ministry of Health currently require testing prior to travel to Israel and upon landing. These instructions are periodically updated and can be found online by clicking here.
We will continue to update this statement and the FAQs below as needed based on the continued developments of COVID-19 in Israel. Please also feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] or by phone with any questions or concerns you might have.
