This year saw a record 17 students take part in the nine week program, where they spent the first four weeks living and learning in Jerusalem, with intensive Hebrew language classes and activities at two local high schools.

In late November they were joined by their peers on the five week program to enjoy exploring Israel from top to bottom. The program now includes a unique three day experience where students choose between volunteering in the Arava region, hiking the southern part of the Israel National Trail in the Negev on the Shvil option or exploring social justice in Israel by spending time with Magen David Adom in Tel Aviv.

Deputy Principal, Director of the Alter Family School of Jewish Studies and Ivrit, Mr Avi Cohen said, “For many students this will be their first time in Israel and they are excited to see and experience all the places they have spent many years learning about in class”.

“We wish all our Ulpaniks an enriching and rewarding time in Eretz Israel and thank our wonderful benefactors who have made this program possible for every student who wished to take part”.
