OTZMA's 10-month Israel program is designed to ensure you get the most out of your experience. You'll spend significant time immersed in the "real Israel" as you live, volunteer and intern in different communities around the country. During your free time, travel to visit fellow participants living in other areas or hang out with your Israeli adoptive family!
The program is divided into three major parts and includes an intensive educational component of seminars and trips giving you an insider's perspective of Israel.
The upcoming session -- the 28th session of OTZMA -- runs from August 21, 2013 - June 29, 2014. Applicants may receive a fellowship from their local Jewish Federation and receive generous Masa grants and scholarships towards participation. Applications are now being accepted so apply here or fill in your information below to have OTZMA staff be in touch with you directly.
