Are you a college student thinking about studying in Israel for semester? Or a student graduating high school thinking about spending a year in Israel before going to college? Interested in studying, gaining course credits, doing Sar-El, and getting involved in a program of your interest, from science and technology to spirituality and psychology? If so, a new MASA-sponsored program may be the perfect fit – Aardvark Israel.
According to Aardvark director, Keith Berman, the “Aardvark Israel Semester Program, [is] MASA’s newest program for university students. Based in the cultural heart of Israel â€“ Tel Avivâ€“ participants will live in the trendy Florentine neighborhood at an apartment complex catering to young Israelis. The Core program combines immersion into Israeli society, service to the community through volunteer work and internships, and learning about Israel and Judaism through both formal academic and informal educational encounters. On top of all the great aspects of Aardvark’s Core Program, Semester participants will spend two weeks volunteering on an Israeli army base through the Sar-El program. Participants may also sign up for special interest programs in the fields of medicine and psychology, digital media, hiking, and spirituality. The Semester Program also offers world travel options to Tunisia, Kenya, Italy, and Bulgaria. Each semester program offers up to a full semester of college credit through a partnership with the American Jewish University in California.”
The Gap Year program is a 9 month program, based both in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
