Program Breakdown

1. The Career Israel program is open to individuals aged 21-30 with a college degree and who are recognized as Jewish by the local Jewish community or by one of the recognized denominations of Judaism.

2. You will work with an internship coordinator prior to your arrival to secure an internship that is right for you.

3. The first few days are spent as a group in Jerusalem acclimating to Israel and getting to know one another with group touring, bonding activities and exciting seminars and programs.

4. You will then move to your base city (Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Haifa) with your group for the remainder of orientation, staying in housing provided by Career Israel, enjoying group activities and trips.

5. The remaining time on the program is focused on your  internship. You will intern 25-30 hours each week at your internship in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, and you will still get to travel and see parts of Israel you have never experienced with trips that include overnight trips and periodic day trips. In addition to your internship you will have a chance to go on trips and tours that will take you all around the country and will expose you to subjects such as modern Israeli society, religion and the Jewish state, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Jewish identity in modern Israel, trends in the Israeli job market and more. You can find a sample itinerary here.
