gap year in israel

Check out our social media to see what our students have been up to this past week!

Welcome to israel!!

It was an exciting day as we welcomed over 160 students to Israel!

Everyone flying today arrived safe and sound and are settling into their apartments for quarantine. As the students arrived to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, they were greeted by their madrich/a (counselor) who checked them in and made sure they are comfortable.

In the coming days we will welcome a few more students who experienced flight delays. We’re looking forward to seeing them soon!

As they settle into their apartments, the students had time to begin to get to know each other today and rest from their flights. Lunch and dinner were delivered and their fridges and cupboards are stocked and ready for them to start cooking tomorrow.

Some students were already in Israel and completed quarantine already, so they will have the chance to begin to explore their new neighborhoods in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, while also participating in zoom orientation sessions with their roommates.

Jerusalem students are making the best out of quarantine!
The students in Jerusalem also spent some time meeting their neighbors as they chatted front their porches.
