KIVUNIM inspires its students to forge a lifelong relationship with Israel and the Jewish People through our travels across the world - gaining understanding of Jewish life and history together with that of the many cultures, religions and worldviews amongst whom the Jewish people grew in its 2000 year Diaspora. Our international travels build and deepen Jewish identity within the context of an emerging sense of “world-consciousness” both as Jews and as citizens of the world. We welcome students from all backgrounds in the belief that mutual understanding can only enhance the possibilities for greater peace and justice Our academic (30 college credits) program complements and interacts with our world travel and teaches students to interpret the past and understand the present in order to build and insure the future. KIVUNIM believes that education must take place within a context of lofty goals and aspirations filled with optimism tempered by reality.
