    Typical day in Israel includes classes with engaging professors, time to roam around Jerusalem (or Israel), and lots of great food.

    International trips include visiting iconic historical places like the Hagia Sofia and the Taj Mahal.

    This program definitely teaches you to travel light and to appreciate what we have. I could not be happier with my experience.

    Excellent exposure to world leaders and people involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. An amazing opportunity to travel around the world and meet Jews. I learned a lot about my heritage, my culture, and myself.

    Nothing can prepare you for the combination of places, people, and awesomeness that is Kivunim: New Directions. Nowhere else will you find lifelong friends and experiences you'll look back on forever. Basically, you should go; it's the single best preparation for college out there.

    Live in heart of Jerusalem, Israel in an amazing top-notch youth hostel with a view that overlooks the Old City of Jerusalem. Learn Arabic and Hebrew, along with Middle East History and Civilizations. You'll also get to volunteer one day each week, at an organization of your choice. Throughout the year you'll go on five international trips to ten countries!! I went to Greece, Bulgaria, Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and India! While there, you'll learn about the countries rich history, see amazing sights, and will explore the Jewish community that once was or still is there. This programs takes becoming a world citizen and coexistence to a whole new level.
