WUJS Israel is a 5-month post-college customized internship and art program located in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
Choose from one of two tracks:
On the Internship track you’ll give your resume the ultimate boost with a customized professional internship in either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. You’ll work four days a week in a field of your choice in almost any area of industry and commerce, public and private sector, art and culture, hi-tech, politics and much more. You’ll develop a great network of contacts, enjoy the adventure of living independently in Israel and have support from our professional and experienced staff to enable you to flourish and maximize your potential here in Israel.
On the Art track you’ll intern twice a week in your chosen field enabling you to get hands on relevant work experience. (Examples include art galleries, exhibitions, dance centers, film studios and similar venues.) You’ll also spend two days a week exploring and developing your own artwork independently which will be presented at the end of the program in a special public exhibition. An art coordinator will be assigned to help guide you throughout your five month program towards your final exhibition and meet with you once a week to introduce you to different aspects of Israeli Art (cinema, dance, design, plastic art and more).
The WUJS Academic Art Track is a great option for participants who are either interested in studying arts or planning to go to grad school and can earn you up to 9 college credits.
While on the program you’ll live in a modern, spacious and comfortable apartment located in the trendy Tel Aviv neighborhood of Florentine or the charming Jerusalem neighborhood of Baka. Both of these central yet beautiful neighborhoods have been chosen to allow you to get the best out of living in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.
As a WUJS intern you’ll learn Hebrew in our private Ulpan, and learn more about the country with weekly trips exploring different areas and themes in Israeli culture. You’ll also develop friendships with Israeli students who also join the program’s activities.
In addition to the Masa Israel grant, WUJS provides generous scholarships, with Young Judaea alumni eligible for further discounts.
