The best part about BINA Gap Year is definitely the full immersion with Israelis my own age! From the very beginning we ate our meals, volunteered, studied, traveled and spent our free time together. Everything was either in English, or we had support for Hebrew events, plus regular Hebrew classes.

The apartments are in the communities that we volunteered with, giving us an authentic understanding of the life of most Israelis.

No week every looked the same, so even with an intense schedule we were always kept entertained. I especially loved being able to built and run parts of the program for the rest of the group, always with the support of the staff.

100% would recommend for anyone looking for an authentic Israel experience in Tel Aviv!

What would you improve about this program?
More international participants - I loved being with the Israelis, but it would have been great if more countries were represented as well.
