Nachshon

Program Description

Nachshon is a gap year program both for Israeli young adults and Jewish high school graduates from the Diaspora that emphasizes social leadership development. The program focuses on study of a wide range of subjects including Judaism, Israeli history, Zionism, environmental studies, current events and more.
 
Learning at Nachshon is not confined to the classroom: during the year, you will have the opportunity to participate in field trips and excursions throughout Israel, including challenging journeys on foot, an outdoor survival week, themed trips, experiential army activities, and more organized by participants themselves (with guidance from Nachshon staff).
 
If you are looking to be in a Hebrew speaking environment with your Israeli peers while taking an active role in exploring the country and giving back to your community, Nachshon is the program for you.
