We all know that Jewish identity is transformed by immersive experiences as a teenager. Participants’ exposure to global Judaism during a gap year will stay with them for the rest of their lives. The LEAP Year includes Jewish learning that is pluralistic and open-minded; community experiences that are relevant and personally meaningful; social action projects that are deeply rooted in Jewish tradition and oriented toward the Jewish future. The Jewish LEAP Year combines BINA’s expertise in running gap years and other immersive programming with the OFJCC’s innovative and forward-thinking perspective on American Judaism.
