LaMidbar is a five-month post-college program in Kibbutz Neot Semadar, an oasis nestled amongst the impressive desert mountains of the Negev.
Participants will experience community kibbutz living; join a kibbutz work team: herding goats, making cheese, growing vegetables, pruning orchards, harvesting dates, or working with wood, metal or glass in the Art Center; work together on a desert ecological building project; discuss, observe, reflect, and more.
- Immersion in a unique community
- The inspiring desert atmosphere of the Negev
- Focus on reflection and personal learning from your experiences
- Ecological building in desert conditions
- Learn a practical, hands-on skill (organic agriculture, goat herding, cheese-making, natural materials)
The kibbutz offers significant additional scholarships in order to make this program affordable for participants.
