Do you want to encourage your young congregants/young people you know to have a life-changing experience of Israel beyond Birthright, but don’t know where to start?
HUC-JIR is interested in supporting our alumni in helping their young students take advantage of the many opportunities for long-term programming in Israel today. Rabbi Haim Shalom, the Assistant Director of Recruitment and Admissions for HUC-JIR in Jerusalem, is also an alum of Shnat Netzer, Hebrew University, and Pardes. He has been working with long-term programs in Israel for High-Schoolers, Freshmen, College Students, and Post-College Young Adults for the past 14 years. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org to consult with you and your young congregants about the best immersive program(s) for them. Don’t leave it to Google to decide what program suits your young people best.
