Israel Service Fellows provides exceptional Jewish college graduates with the opportunity to do meaningful service in Israel for 10 months.
Israel Service Fellows focus on informal education, community development and empowerment of youth and other populations. Following an initial training period, Israel Service Fellows will live in small groups and work in their primary project placement for 25-30 hours per week. Training will include courses in Hebrew language, informal education, working with youth at risk and conflict resolution.
ISF is intentionally designed so that English-speaking participants will not live in an insular bubble. Fellows will be matched with a group of Israeli peers and both groups will undergo joint programming and carry out service work together. All of this will set the stage for a meaningful and deep cultural exchange.
While the program requires a $1,000 deposit, this deposit is returned to you in form of roundtrip airfare, housing, medical insurance and a monthly cash stipend, making the program completely subsidized. This subsidy is made possible by the generous support of the Rashi Foundation and Masa Israel, through its partners, The Jewish Agency for Israel and the Government of Israel.
