Stay in israel after birthright!

This is a pilot program for Onward Israel that allows participants to live in Tel Aviv for a month and study Social Entrepreneurship and Hebrew immersion. You will learn what it means to “be Israeli,” while at the same time exploring Israel through the lens of Social Entrepreneurship.


Your cohort will spend part of the day in a Social Entrepreneurship course or in Hebrew class (depending on the day). When you complete these courses you will get a completion certificate (however it is not valid for school credit). You will also get to visit various companies and other cities in Israel. **You will not have an internships**
