Year Course is Young Judaea's 9-month gap year program in Israel where students get the chance to earn up to 30 college credits, enhance their language skills, gain meaningful and unique volunteer opportunities and deepen their curiosity of where and how they want to engage in the world around them. The students that go on Year Course gain a great sense of independence and mature in ways that enable them to truly thrive in college, both socially and academically.
The year consists of 4 months living and studying on our private campus in Jerusalem. Your week will include daily Hebrew classes, 4 to 5 courses of your choice and weekly trips out of the classroom. You will also spend 4 months in the city of Bat Yam living like a local in apartment buildings and volunteering in the community.
