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 3 communities over the course of the program! 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 -- our 27th annual program -- runs from August 22, 2012 - June 23, 2013. Applicants receive a fellowship from their local Jewish Federation and receive generous Masa grants and scholarships towards participation. Applications are being accepted so apply now or request more information below.
During the final 3 months of the program, participants intern in top Israeli NGOs or service organizations that are working to help the world -- in either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. Enjoy city life and get great work experience. Learn about the internship placements of past participants.more
