Where do you want to spend your 5-month internship?
During the first month of the program everyone lives together in our apartments in the center of Tel Aviv, studying Hebrew everyday while enjoying group activities and trips. For the remaining 4-months of the program, you have the choice of living in one of the three economic hubs of Israel. Each location has it’s own character, unique with it’s own style of accommodation and Israeli culture. From education and start-ups to politics and media, you are bound to find an incredible internship in your field while living in the city of your choice.
For help in choosing which city you would like to live in, feel free to call us at 877-261-3442 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you chose to live in Tel Aviv, then you will be living in Beit Leni, or ‘Leni’s House’.
In this dormitory-style building, participants share rooms or there is an option for a single apartment at an added fee. Each room comes furnished with a single bed, closet, kitchenette, and air-conditioning.
Beit Leni could not be more central. It is located on one of Tel Aviv’s main streets, King George, where all major bus lines run to. This street goes through Dizengoff Center, which is one of Tel Aviv’s largest shopping centers. Living in Beit Leni means you get to spend your mornings off strolling through Shuk HaCarmel, Tel Aviv’s open air market and in just minutes wind up on the beach and tayelet (promenade). Rent one of the city bikes and take the newly built bike path all the way down to the ancient Jaffa Port. Beit Leni is right in the middle of Tel Aviv’s top restaurants and hottest night life.
Choose to live in the Jerusalem accommodations and you get a unique chance to experience the ancient capital of Israel. Accommodations are located in Hebrew University’s Student Village. There are five people to an apartment and each person will have his or her own room. Each complex is equipped with basic furnishings, kitchen utensils and other essentials.

The Hebrew University campus is located on the light rail train line, which runs directly through the center of town. Jerusalem is home to some of the most important landmarks of the State of Israel, including the Old City and Kotel, the Knesset, The Great Synagogue, the Israel Museum, and many more. Spend afternoons buying your groceries in the open air market, Shuk Mahene Yehuda, and return later for a drink in one of the Shuk’s bars or hit one of Jerusalem’s nightclubs. Go out to lavish dinners in the German Colony neighborhood, or toss a frisbee in Gan Sacher Park. Jerusalem is full of cultural activities from movies at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, weekly artists markets, and an array of annual festivals.
*The cost of the February 2014 Haifa session is $6,500, which is $1,000 less than the other locations. See details here.
