BINA Gap Year is a life-changing 10-month experience that combines communal living with Israelis, experiential learning, hands-on volunteering, travel, and leadership training – with tracks in Tel Aviv and Haifa!
Live in Tel Aviv, Israel's most exciting city. Go in-depth with classes from the Jewish bookshelf. Torah, Talmud, philosophy, contemporary Israeli society, Jewish identity and more – with optional college credit! Take trips around Israel and immerse yourself in Hebrew as part of an Israeli Mechina – a leadership program for Israeli peers.
Live in Haifa, Israel's super-diverse city by the sea. Volunteer in schools and non-profits serving the various populations of the city, and be part of the Secular Yeshiva in Bat Galim neighborhood to empower the community around you. Live and learn alongside Israeli volunteers in English, while also learning Hebrew.
BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change is an Israeli movement at the forefront of social activism and Jewish pluralism in Israel. Every year, BINA reaches over 50,000 Israelis and individuals from around the world through social, educational and community programs.
As a BINA Gap Year participant, you'll be a part of a diverse community of Israelis and internationals working toward social change through study and action.
