When you go to Israel on USY High, not only will you be with USYers from all over North America, but you will get to know the Jewish homeland in an exciting and unique way. Israel’s 4,000 years of history will come alive as you learn in the classroom and experience it first hand on hikes and tours.
USY High gives you the opportunity to experience Israel the USY way, with ruach-filled Shabbatonim, daily tefillot (services), and activities with NOAM, the Masorti (Conservative) youth movement in Israel. You’ll see things that stir your emotions and feel things that touch your heart. USY High will strengthen your personal Kesher (connection) with Israel as well as your understanding of what it means to be a Conservative Jew.
The program includes:
Fully accredited academic program for high school juniors and seniors.
8-week session held during February and March.
Enriched “Israel Core Course” combining intensive Israel and Judaic studies, integrated with hands-on field experience – the Land of Israel is your classroom!
Receive high school credits.
Run in cooperation with Ramah Programs in Israel, provider of exciting and unique programs for children, teens, and adults.
Live at the beautiful Goldstein Youth Village, a secure school community in Jerusalem and home of Ramah programs in Israel.
