I never imagined going on a gap year after high school, but I am beyond grateful that I chose to participate in Year Course. I learned about myself as a Jew, a Zionist, a friend, and overall person. I grew so much on Year Course. I created lifelong friends and had learning experiences that will stay with me forever. The staff was so supportive and there for us as we embarked on this journey. I learned about life on a kibbutz, the land of Israel, Israelis and more. It was the best year of my life!
