Masa Israel Teaching Fellows Tel Aviv+ (MITF) is for Jewish socially active College graduates who are looking to make a change within the Israeli schooling system. With Ulpan (Hebrew classes), volunteering, and educational days, one should be looking to help their community of residence, learn the beautiful language, and to learn more about their Jewish identity.
Fellows work with students in primary school under the supervision of a host teacher and alongside another fellow. Fellows typically work in small groups to give students more personalized attention.
Depending on which city you choose or prefer (do your research!), will dictate where you will be located. With 5 of the 10 months in Tel Aviv, you will either start or end in the bustling city.
Fellows spend four mornings a week in school. In the afternoons fellows volunteer, go to Hebrew lessons and take time to relax and enjoy their cities. Most Sundays are dedicated to group programming and most Shabbats fellows are free to enjoy exploring Israel!
Fellows have Madrichim (coordinators) who help guide the group through the year.
MITF Tel Aviv+ gives fellows the ability to live and work in Israeli society while exploring the country's culture and meeting locals. Fellows on the track have the added advantage of getting to do this and make an impact in two cities!
When not teaching, fellows are able to travel around Israel, visit friends or family or hang with one’s host family. They also volunteer in an organization of their choice and attend Hebrew/Arabic classes a few hours a week.
The Israeli government stays on top of buses within the country, always working on ways to improve the system. With new fleets, easy ways to pay (rav-kav, hop on), and designated bus lanes, it is sometimes even faster, cheaper, and more economical to use the busses and trains within Israel. There are even busses within the center on Shabbat and Sheruts which allow you to travel between cities.
